a city visit..

we recently took a trip into the downtown core of sao paulo where i was able to experience first hand the immensity of this city. after visiting the city like we did i now have a better understanding of the tremendous need for this camp i call home. we walked around town.. visiting a bunch of different places.. but the big stop was one of the large skyscrapers of the city which you could climb to see a panoramic view of the entire city. it was breathtaking to say the least.. it wasn’t beauty which i saw but yet.. it was amazing. building after building in every single direction.. as i stood up there i was able to see the desperation of this place.. where there’s millions upon millions of people who have not even heard about the love of Jesus Christ.. as i looked over this concrete forest of civilization gone awry i comprehended the need for a camp in the jungle.. the need for a camp to get people out of the city, into creation, to meet with their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.. to be equipped to enter back into the city, and share the love of their God with so many who can not even fathom something more than what their life entails.. so many who lead a lost life.. not really moving towards anything but not really moving backwards either.. just living.. a busy yet stagnant life. this is the reason for building a camp.. this is the reason why we’re here..
