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.

Who doesn't like to dance?! Our Agent of Hope, Mari has taken professional ballet classes so that she can provide lessons to children who would never have the opportunity to take a dance class, and at the same time she is able to share with them the good news of hope in Jesus, the Lord of the dance! Perfect combo!

As our next construction team in Aquidauana, Brazil continues with building Cirlene's new home, please pray with us that, throughout their 10 days there, they can be a light reflecting God's love in all that they do. Whether that is building, ministering to the family, playing with the kids, or just spending time with one another. May they show that there is no other foundation than Christ Jesus!

This past month, our team in Assis partnered with a ministry called Sanduba do Bem, where parents and their children serve together by making sandwiches for the children of Open Arms.
Every Friday our Agents of Hope receive more than 100 lunches to distribute in the communities we serve. Pray with us that this partnership would grow and bless many more children!

For 15 years Open Arms Worldwide has brought the hope of Jesus, smiles, opportunities, help in time of need, peace into chaos, and joy to places of despair. For a year and a half our teams have stood in the gap for communities hard hit by the pandemic. Now that we are emerging from this challenge there will be new opportunities as well as needs as we help our children and their families recover. You can be a part of kicking off the next 15 years of being the "Open Arms" of Jesus to children, youth, and their families by helping us hit our goal of $15,000 by our 15th birthday!

Our team from Assis, in partnership with the Paradigm Foundation, made quick headway on Cirlene's home. It was a blessing for our team to have Cirlene and her family members helping us with carrying blocks, sharing their coffee/water, and making sure our team had all that they need for the construction. We are thankful for our Agents of Hope who are using their gifts to build this home for another Open Arms family in need.

We are thankful for Paradigm Foundation for patterning with us to make this happen! Not only building a home but building a firm foundation in Christ.

Many of you have been following the pictures of the construction of Dona Teresa's house,since early September of 2020. We finished the work in May 2021. If you think about it, that's nine months together. Nine months of laughter, hard work, patience, relationship building, growth and above all putting our faith in Christ, believing that no matter how long it would take, our team would be able to finish the house.
Have you seen the pictures? If you see the ‘before’ and ‘after’, you will see we transformed two small rooms where 8 people lived, into a beautiful home. For 36 years Dona Teresa has been living in that small structure, and all the while praying for a proper place to live. For those 36 years, she prayed and waited. She waited, He listened and He put her in our lives.
Oh how we have learned from her! Her humbleness, her patience, her wisdom and her faith. The celebration on the 28th of May of 2021 showed that God listened to His child and in the end gave her what she needed and much more. This is her story, showing that with God anything is possible. Our team can't thank enough all of our partners in Brazil and in the US. We are deeply thankful for all of the women and men that took part in the building, donating funds, and even making/taking snacks for the team. We built a house with many hands. May we continue to bless others, as we have been blessed, reflecting God's love and glory every day.
