The city of São Luís in Brazil is home for Lidia. At age 10, she had a conversion experience but it was not until later in her teen years that she made God the King of her life.
Lidia then volunteered with Youth for Christ for two years before coming on staff at age 20. In Canada, the few weeks of training at Summer Institute assisted her in refining her passions and in reaching out to youth like Thalles, a 13-year-old boy who is fatherless and in jail.
Thalles participated in the “School of Life” program where he wrote a letter to God. Lidia, as a Youth for Christ staff person, then had the privilege of answering the letter and visiting with him.
Thalles committed his life to Christ and is now asking for help to start a Bible study with others in the institution.
The circle of hope continues!
