1996

My mother visited single mothers in situations of vulnerability in garbage dumps, slums (favelas) and always accompanied her. And at age 8 at a "home cult" in one of these places. I read two verses - Joshua 1:8 and Psalm 2:7,8; I was convinced of my calling: that I would be a missionary.  read more...

Iris Global, pemba, mozambique

My first missionary trip was to Africa.  I served in the orphanage, women's ministry and arts department (Giving a workshop to the mothers and students at the Harvest School). We crossed the country to tribes where people had never ever listenig about Jesus or seen white people. We had the opportunity to accompany Heide and Roland Baker on this trip.

Jake Hamilton chose an art to represent the text of this book based on 1 Cor. 13  -     

"Love endures all things"  The reason? Her daughter, who is paralyzed, always felt sitting on Jesus' lap. Jake is a Christian singer and songwriter, one of the best known songs is "The Anthem" when He was at Jesus Culture.

Sem-título-1.png

Since 2011 I was helping the ministry Shores of Grace via online providing prophetic art, but in October/2013 I was invited to join the Shores of Grace team. So in January/2014 I moved to the Brazilian northeast. It's been almost seven years (2013-2019)  serving women and children who came from prostitution and human trafficking situations. I had the grace of God to contemplate their redemption in Christ. I served in the areas as social media coordinator, ministerial schools, home for women, Vila Betania (host house), Hadassa (girls +18 who have no family who were in the foster home); Leaders of Evangelism in the Red Zone area, among street children - where I even shared a room with them... find out more...

sabbatical

intense search for God, rediscovery of my relationship with Jesus and reflecting on everything I had lived in the countryside. It was a time of deep healing and personal growth. I reconnected with friends living in Europe, mentored artists, helped establish/trained an evangelism/rescue team with a focus on women/man in prostitution; and and create a prophetic art team in my local community ! BUT it was at this time that Abba invited me again:


"DO YOU TRUST ME? AND WOULD YOU GO BACK TO THE MISSION FIELD? TO A CONTINENT THAT NEVER BURNED YOUR HEART" 

I answered "yes" so I started to see signs, study the local language and ask for a baptism of love and compassion for these people. Read more...
