They work with the Boa Vista Church of Christ, a congregation of 200 – 250 members in downtown Recife and have helped to plant several other congregations. The church is very active in the community – offering food and prayers for the homeless each Sunday and Wednesday, operating the ‘Escola de Biblia” a school that teaches English by using the Bible , as well as an active youth program and a mentoring program.
