With a population of 35,000, it is surrounded by sugarcane, and known for it's gangs and violence. Led by Ilzo, with Cris and Tais teaching math and Portuguese, Guga doing computers and English, and Kattia doing Bible and character.
Living Stones is the only child sponsorship program that is church planting THROUGH child sponsorship. Because Living Stones is a part of World Renewal Brazil, which has a church planting focus, it is never JUST about child sponsorship. We know many children will come for the food, fun, education, or support and care, but there will be those that find a home and family and decide to become the next generation of leaders that reaches out to their communities: and to the world.
With World Renewal you are sponsoring children: not a child. 90% of the money you give goes directly to the church to use for the children in their community. Please feel free to write and pray for a specific child at the location, knowing the support goes towards all of the children.
