This favela has the highest high school dropout rate of all the major favelas (slums) in Rio. This team of 12 will be divided into 2 groups of 6. Each group will sleep in a different Baptist church within the favela. These churches are only 2 miles apart from each other. Their goal will be to evangelize high school students in the favela community. They will also share their faith (personal testimonies and spiritual conversations) in local high schools. We will provide 1 translator for every two students. These translators will work alongside the team members. A block party will conclude the week with teens having one more chance to allow locals to respond to the gospel. Local believers will assist students the entire week and fill out personal information cards to be used to follow up with new believers and seekers to integrate them into one of the local churches.
Clothes need to be conservative and comfortable for hot weather.
You will be in a large busy city that lives fast and hard. It will warm up and be hot most of your stay. You will experience a mass of humanity and spiritual warfare.
