If you attended MW Canada’s 60th Anniversary celebration in Vancouver in July 2012 you might remember Valeria, a special guest from Recife, Brazil. Tim Froese, Executive Minister of Witness Council introduced her and she shared about her work as Pastor of Iglesia Evangelica Menonita Lagoa Encantada and her involvement with Latin AmericanWomen Theologians.
Recently she contacted us asking if we could provide assistance as the church is in the process of spiritual resoration and physical rebuilding after a heavy rain caused a landslide and destroyed their building. Due to international and charitable status regulations MW Canada cannot support this project financially but we can support them with our prayers.
You can find more information about Valeria and her ministry on her facebook page. The Latin American Women Theologians also have a blog you might want to visit.
If you would like to get in touch with Valeria please contact Waltrude Gortzen, our BC rep, who is fluent in Portuguese, and she will give you Valeria’s contact information.
We encourage you to pray for Valeria and her ministry!
After I posted this I found a facebook page where there were photos of the church building.
