Wishing you a happy & blessed New Year!
2021 – An Amazing Year of Blessing
“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” – Psalm 107:1
It is hard to believe that 2021 is coming to a close. We started the year with a lot of uncertainty. Our team in Brazil was unable to gather the children together in groups, so our ministry shifted. Door to door, one child, one family at a time. We brought food, we brought prayer, we brought the hope of the gospel. New partnerships were formed and new doors for ministry were opened.
As things began to reopen, we found that more children than ever were coming to our weekend Bible clubs, weekday bible studies, and sports ministry. Out of a time of trial came new life and a fresh start. Through it all, God has been faithful, and so have you. Your generosity and your prayers carried us through the most trying two years we have experienced as a mission. For that we are forever grateful.
We have big plans for 2022 and the years beyond. Plans to expand our reach in places like the Brazilian Pantanal, São Paulo, and the Amazon. Plans to move beyond Brazil and take the Open Arms’ vision and model to other countries as the Lord opens doors.
Your partnership allows us to dream big as we continue the work of bringing gospel hope to children and youth, and participate in the miracle of changed lives. On behalf of the children and youth, and the missionaries of Open Arms, thank you!

There is still time to give & help us be the “Open Arms” of Jesus to more children in 2022.
On this last day of the year, we invite you to prayerfully consider an end of year gift to Open Arms that will help us open our arms wider still in 2022. There are multiple ways to give and, as a bonus, the tax benefits are even greater this year. God bless you and yours with a prosperous and joyful 2022!
From Everyone at Open Arms Worldwide,
God bless you & Happy New Year!
