Open Arms Worldwide Embracing children at-risk with the “open arms” of Jesus.
(17)

Embracing at risk children with the “open arms” of Jesus. “And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” Matthew 18:5 Open Arms Brazil, in partnership with our sister organization, Comunidade Braços Abertos Brasil, works to develop and implement children’s outreach programs with the following objectives, ○ Help a child discover the hope and the future that is possible. ○ Help a child understand that his/her beauty and value are found in God's eyes and in the love of Jesus Christ, and not in the circumstances in which he/she lives. ○ Invest in the character development of children at risk. ○ Start a child on the path toward a productive life of love, service, honor, and dignity before God and his/her community. ○ Develop the child’s ability to think and make decisions based on time tested biblical principles. ○ Develop the child’s imagination and love for literature, arts and sport. ○ Invest in the child’s social skills and emotional well being within an atmosphere of joy, unconditional love and acceptance.

Mission: Open Arms Worldwide mobilizes, prepares, equips and aids Christian leaders in establishing faith-based child and community projects reaching at-risk children and their families.

Alan leads the second oldest Open Arms neighborhood mission in Brazil, the Jardim Floresta neighborhood of Florestopolis. It is a mission he participated in as a child, and that he volunteered in as a teen. When Alan assumed leadership of Open Arms in Florestopolis, the ministry was struggling, having lost most of its volunteers and many of the children. Alan went right to work doing what he was trained to do; visiting house by house, inviting new volunteers, providing training, reestablishing strong bible teaching and preaching, strengthening his partnership with the local church, and investing in his teen helpers. Today Florestopolis is again a gem among in Open Arms family, and he is continually looking for ways to advance the Kingdom further in that city.

Please pray for him as he ministers to the children, teens, and families of Open Arms! Learn more about Alan and how you can support him at https://www.openarmsworldwide.org/alan-cavalcante/

“My dream is to see the children in every at-risk neighborhood in our city have access to an Open Arms outreach, so that they can know the Hope that is in Jesus.” Alan

Mari has been with Open Arms since its beginning in 2006. When Mari was just 17 years old she came to help founders Mike and Patricia Meyers watch their then 3 year old daughter Bela. It didn’t take long for Mari to fall in love with the ministry of Open Arms and she has never turned back, serving in almost every one of our outreach locations at one time or another. In July 2014 her dream came true to start a project in her town Cândido Mota. Mari went from being a volunteer to serving as a full-time Agent of Hope working to mobilize the local Christian community to partner with schools and businesses in order to reach children with the message of hope and a future that God has for them.

Please pray for her as she ministers to the children, teens, and families of Open Arms! Learn more about Mari and how you can support her at https://www.openarmsworldwide.org/mariane-rodrigues/

“My heartbeat is to fulfill my calling to help rescue lives for the Kingdom of Heaven and teach them (children and their families) to be Sowers of the Word.” Mari

Check out the video slideshow we used to kick off our first every missionary retreat. The titles are in Portuguese and say, "You, Missionary, are part of a story that God is still writing. You, Agent of Hope, are part of a family." The theme for our retreat was, "In the footsteps of the Master: People, Purpose, & Passion."
