A Brazilian Missionary Family
It’s been some years since I’ve known Yuri and Larissa Velloso. They are missionaries from Brazil, serving others in their city, but with a huge dream to live in Israel and start projects there. When I went to visit them in 2017, they shared with me how difficult it had been to raise funds to live in Israel. Being a missionary as well, I fully understand the struggle of fundraising.
After they shared this with me, I could not sleep that night. Ideas filled my mind. In the early morning, I excitedly told them of this plan to create for them a website where people all around the world could donate to their cause. We worked together to create a logo, and soon after, with God’s help, I made them a website.
Sometimes, sitting behind a computer typing code does not make me feel as though I am doing much to help the world. Then, there are moments like these which remind me why I chose this work. If we just help one person at a time with the skills we have, perhaps hope will spread and love will rise. I believe, at the very least, we can try.
