Homeless people in the city of Lages, the largest city in the mountainous region of Brazil’s Santa Catarina state, received food and encouragement from Seventh-day Adventist youths on the evening of May 30. Seventeen young adults from the city’s Central Seventh-day Adventist Church participated, first visiting a temporary shelter managed by city officials. The shelter is designed to help protect the homeless from extreme cold temperatures and other conditions.
The young people distributed 33 lunch boxes during an informal service that featured songs, prayers, and a brief devotional with Bible readings.
