“I was there with a mission trip that week and was struck with a desire to come back and be a part of what God is doing in Rio to bring glory to His name and draw a people to himself.” -Eric
After multiple short-term trips, Eric moved to Brazil in 2014 and started working with Restore Brazil, a ministry focused on Church Planting, Pastoral Training, and Mercy Ministry. He and Suzana started to work together in a very poor and violent area in Rio called Cidade de Deus (City of God), both sharing their calling and gifts ministering to children and families in great need. In July of 2015, after getting married, they started a ministry called Casa da Esperança (House of Hope) seeking to share the joy of Christ with children in great need with hope in seeing hearts changed and lives transformed.
“House of Hope! We trust that by sowing the seeds of the Gospel we will see hope spring forth out of the ground of Cidade de Deus (City of God).” - Suzana
