Open Arms Worldwide

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

What we do!
Every community is unique, and so the way we approach reaching and teaching the children of that community must be flexible. The foundation for our community outreach is our Cornerstone Projects. Cornerstone is where children and qualified Christian volunteers can meet to play, learn and grow. On this “Cornerstone” we can then build, based on the specific needs and profile of that community.

How can you pray for the children today?
Boldness
Father, give the children of Open Arms the boldness to do what is right and to speak your truth while facing the daily challenges of intense peer pressure.
(And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness… Acts 4:29)

How blessed we are to be partners with @paradigmfoundation Paradigm Foundation
to be able to bless a family in Aquidauana-MS where our Agent of Hope Sarita Romeiro lives and serves several communities.

Family history: This house is for a mother and her 3 children. A few months ago a very strong windstorm passed through Aquidauana where this family lives. The mother and her kids were living with her brother due to security reasons. During the storm, the roof fell and other parts of the house and furniture were also damaged.

How thankful that we are, that God provides our needs even when we think it might be impossible. Thankful for all that God has done and will do so that this family will be able to receive a new home.

Prayer request:
• Pray that the Lord will raise volunteers to start working on the house. We have a worker who is only there during the weekends.

• Pray that the Lord will raise a good team (our Brazilian team have plans to go with a team of volunteers builders in April).

• Pray for the family that we are building the house for

• Pray for our missionary Sarita who is organizing all the materials and anything else the team might need before they get there.

Our team is very excited to be a part of this!
Thank you Paradigm Foundation!

We are excited to officially announce that the Lord has once again expanded our territory and we have partnered with Open Arms Worldwide to start serving impoverished families in Brazil!

Our Founders, Tim and Jen, served with this ministry on their very first mission trip back in 2012 and it is encouraging to look back and see how the Lord led them through that time, to starting their own ministry, to now partnering with OAW to serve the people of Brazil once again. God is SO GOOD and we are excited to see what He has in store for His glory through this partnership.

First build is to start soon, so stay tuned to learn more about the family and join us in prayer as we plan!

Zadok Ministry: Outreach inside detention center.
Today our Agents of Hope Marquinhos and Bruno went to Marília were the Fundação Casa is(youth detention center). Following all the regulations inside, our missionaries were able to minister to the boys inside.
The employees who have met our missionaries before, received them with great joy. They separated the boys into two groups and Bruno and Marquinhos were able to evangelize to them.
Thank you for all of your prayers and please continue to pray for our Zadok Ministry. God answered our prayers about being able to go back to minister not only to the youth but also those who work inside the detention center.

Today is Dona Teresa Birthday! She is turning 65 years old today. We were able to surprise her for her birthday. As you can tell from the video, she was very happy and never thought we would do something like that for her. We also had a time of prayer with her and her family. She mentioned on how it was the first time she had received a flower as a present.
How blessed our team felt to have spent that time with her.

Project BASE is a ministry that Missionary Evandro and wife Polyana minister inside the schools. Since schools are closed at the moment, Evandro continues to visit the homes of the students with donations and any other need that they might have.
May our team continue to preach about the kingdom of Christ not only with words but with actions too!

How thankful that our missionaries can continue to reach those in need. Missionary Mari continues to visit families and helping with any needs that they may have.
Please continue to pray for Mari as she starts to have individual small groups with families in her community. This week she had her first small group at a family home and Mari was very encouraged by the participation of the girls and their mom.

When our Agents of Hope arrive at Dona Teresa house, she is back from walking around her community, which she tries to go everyday when her leg doesn't hurt. She goes around to pick up items to sell to the recycler. Her days start and end with her hard work that provides for her family.
Our team is truly building hope. A hope that is not only for her but also for her great-grandchild and her family members that live with her. What a blessing that this hope comes from Christ.

Thank you for your continuous support!
