Meet my dear friend and Open Arms’ Agent of Hope, Sarita Romeiro, Tia (Aunt) Sarita as she is known among the children. Sarita is a member and commissioned missionary of the Independent Presbyterian Church of Jardim Paulista in Assis, Brazil. She is currently partnered with the UNIEDAS church in the District of Aquidauana, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil [Click for Map]
Tia Sarita has been involved with Open Arms since the first exploratory mission teams were sent to Brazil in 2003 and 2004 and she served as a founding member of the Board of Directors in Brazil. During a visit to Aquidauana in 2008 she sensed a strong leading from the Lord to move there and initiate an Open Arms outreach program among the children in a poor, mixed indigenous and Brazilian neighborhood. Since 2009 she has planted five OA outreaches and currently serves as Regional Missionary for Mato Grosso do Sul where she leads urban and indigenous outreach projects for Open Arms.
During my recent visit to Sarita she explained that her greatest need is for more trained workers to minister to the innumerable children in the neighborhoods and Indian reservations of the district.
Sarita has given herself to the Lord for the cause of the gospel and you can be a part of what God is doing through her in Aquidauana and bless the children of that corner of Brazil. Sarita needs a mere $1,000 per month to support herself and her ministry of mobilizing, equipping, and serving with the local church to reach the children of the Pantanal with the open arms of Jesus.
