A gift that keeps on giving
PERIOD OF THE PROJECT
2015 – This moment
The work of Harvest Brazil with the Guaranys in the Tarumã Village has been fruitful. They have focused their actions in four areas of growth and development: health, education, vocational training and housing. With the partnership of NGO’s, entrepreneurs, professionals, churches and especially the participation of the beneficiaries, they have seen progress. Some disciplines of love and seed projects done with them are listed below according to the four areas of Luke 2.52:
Physical: Construction of a schoolhouse, houses and bathrooms, installation of a playground, donation of clothes, toys, food, vaccines for dogs and school supplies.
Wisdom: Round tables with professionals sharing vocational skills and improving life conditions: lawyers, electricians, masons, nurses, doctors, veterinaries, sociologists, anthropologists, pastors, teachers, politicians, and public officials. Building the school has fostered an environment that values wisdom, where children, youth and adults interact and are educated at the basic, middle and college levels.
Spiritual: Services with gospel centered messages, prayer meetings, Bible sharing (writing and audio), children’s booklets and songs in the Guarani language, and conversations about the gospel.
Social: Partnership of several churches led by the Family Church, holding social events, sharing meals, playing with children, celebrating holydays, meetings with government officials and businesspeople to introduce them to the Guaranys. A great victory was the employment of Guaranys who are now generating income and building their homes.
The SamS project in Tarumã mobilized over fifteen churches that learned how to serve a community with the Guaranys and now practice it in an ongoing basis. It also multiplied in the SamS project in Araquari
