It all started as a Childhood’s dream!
I was about 5 or 6 years old, it was a Sunday afternoon, right after Morning Church Service. I went to buy Rotisserie Chicken with my Dad in my Birth Town of Governador Valadares in Brazil. It was Family tradition! As we walked by the steps of the Bus Station there was a Homeless lady breastfeeding her baby, with 2 other toddler sitting by her side begging for Money. My dad always stopped to help, but I remember him telling this lady, I will not give you money but I will buy you food. We bought food and Milk for the Children. This impacted me so much, that to this day it’s vivid in my mind. As an innocent child I asked my dad if we could take them to live with us, he answered with a tender heart, I wish I could. He had me and my four siblings to take care of, and it was already a handful for him and my Mom. So I told him “WHEN I GROW UP I’M GOING TO TAKE EVERYONE OFF THE STREETS”, and that’s where it all began, my dream to become a Missionary!
