THE STORY:

Brazil. It sounds so exotic and alluring. And it is, but maybe not in the way you'd think. The people are open, warm and generous, no matter how much or little they have. The Amazon Jungle is gorgeous, and teeming with life, but also deadly. This is my 4th year returning to the jungle.I will be serving as the worship leader for this trip, and we'll be working with Ray of Hope, an organization based in Manaus, Brazil. Their mission is to serve the neediest of the needy. A team of all ages will travel to Manaus, and load onto a rickety two decker boat, which will be our home for the week. We sleep in hammocks in the open air, and travel up and down the Amazon river visiting remote villages and tribes. We bring food and medicine and music with us, and seek out families that can continue to be helped by Ray of Hope, and those with special needs. Many families of 9-10 people live in a house on stilts that is the size of a small master bedroom here in the states. Many people have a lack of fresh water despite living next to one of the world's biggest resources. I need to raise $3000 to cover the cost of this trip, but any additional money that I raise will go directly to bringing extra food and medicine, and resources for Ray of Hope.
