Our Soup Ministry and Providing Meals: $5 for 5

This Thanksgiving season, let's make sure everyone gets enough to eat. 

The soup ministry, run through a local restaurant in Brazil, is serving 1,500 meals a month in communities all around. Every day, they make two huge pots of soup (each having at least 25 good-sized meals), and Pastor Flavio has organized many volunteers to take it, pass it out, and share Jesus in needy places:
Monday: Paudalho church and Belem Living Stones Outreach
Tuesday: Mussurepe Living Stones Outreach and a group that serves another part of Paudalho
Wednesday: Cajueiro Claro Living Stones and Paudalho church
Thursday: Acacias church outreach and Santo Antonio church
Friday: Cajueiro Claro Living Stones and Mussurepe Living Stones Outreach
Saturday: Trash dump ministry with a local Baptist church
Sunday: Evangelistic ministry through a different Baptist church
The need for consistent food is especially great in the rural areas of Cajueiro Claro and Mussurepe. Receiving soup twice a week helps their families make ends meet, but does not mean they will always have food. It costs Living Stones about $1 to provide a child with a hot meal in a hard-to-reach rural area. Are you willing to give up a value meal to enable 5 children to be fed today?  Give here

Baby in Brazil

Caid and Rachel Ferguson are happy to announce that we are expecting a baby June 17, 2015. With Caid finishing his bachelor’s degree spring 2015, we have decided to begin our ministry together in Brazil, and welcome our new baby into our lives there. 
Rachel has been serving as a missionary in Brazil since 2004, and been the coordinator of Living Stones since 2009. Caid has joined the ministry full force, serving in Brazil in 2013, marrying Rachel, and now leading our family in future ministry. 

Our needs are in two phases:
Phase 1 is raising $10,000 for airfare, birthing expenses, and basic relocation costs. We are also asking for a small group of faithful monthly supporters, who feel called to minister with us. We need $1,000 a month for basic living costs.

Phase 2 is when we return fall 2015 with specific and concrete plans, welcome you to meet our child, and raise the funds for a vehicle. Thank you for your care and interest on the adventure that God has called us on!
