Our Mission

Mission Statement

The mission of Latin American Ministries is to assist children living in the poorest and most "at risk" areas of Brazil and other South American countries.  We aim to provide assistance, wherever possible, in the following activities: education / employment training / medical / dental / disability / aid / famine relief / arts / culture / and religion; to the end that our Charity might be able to 
relieve poverty, sickness and distress among children in necessitous circumstances in South America and advance  Christianity in that land.

The basis for our Statement

When Jesus walked the land of Israel, so many years ago, his concern for the people was practical, as well as spiritual.  For that reason he healed the sick, fed the hungry, restored the widow's dead son to her arms and provided for his mother's final days; at the same time as he showed to all who would listen, the way to eternal life through salvation in Him.  In so doing, he fulfilled the "fast" required by his Father in Isaiah 58 V. 6 & 7
 "This is the kind of fasting I want: 
Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; 
    lighten the burden of those who work for you. 
Let the oppressed go free, 
    and remove the chains that bind people.
Share your food with the hungry, 
    and give shelter to the homeless. 
Give clothes to those who need them, 
    and do not hide from relatives who need your help."
and gave a reason to others to listen to his message of eternal salvation.  
Latin American Ministries strives to imitate the burden of Jesus by caring for people in practical ways, in order to reinforce the spiritual message given.  God is a God of love, not only for the hereafter, but in this world too and His ears are still open to the cries of His children.
