(Brazil)–Meanwhile, street children in Brazil are the focus of ministry for BCM International. BCM is a ministry that uses Bibles Clubs and more to lead people to Christ. BCM’s Maria Gusmao says the need for this type of outreach is great. “More than 20-million are street kids. So, the street kids are all over the place. Where ever you walk, you will meet street kids. They’re in the streets asking you for food and asking for money. They will even steal from you if you’re not careful.” Gusmao says they’ve seen success as they minister the Good News to these young people. “Right now, we have 19 Bible Clubs in different slums, as I said, and government places; and we are reaching more than 500 street kids. Our goal for this year is to have 20 Bible Clubs.” However, funding and more workers are needed to help the program expand further.
