Church in the City of Sousas - Brazil


GIVING CODE:  AMS1000

REGION:  South America


DESCRIPTION

The Church of the Nazarene Sousas was founded in August 2000 by the district superintendent Rev. Lázaro Aguiar Valvassoura, in Sousas (a district of the Campinas city, in São Paulo state). At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Sousas had its economy based on the coffee farms, and it was catechized by Priests. Therefore, people are predominantly idolaters, with aversion to the gospel, maintaining very strong traditions of pagan festivals, such as the traditional festival for its patron Saint Ana and San Joaquim, and they are considered one of the largest Catholic parties in Brazil. For this reason, it is the greatest missionary challenge for the Church of the Nazarene Sousas.
Since that time, the church has made a great effort to pay the rent corresponding to U$ 4,411.00 dlolars due to economic advancement and appreciation of the real estate market in the region.

A Igreja do Nazareno de Sousas foi organizada no mês de agosto de 2000, pelo então superintendente distrital Rev. Lázaro Aguiar Valvassoura, um distrito da cidade de Campinas , estado de São Paulo, historicamente, desde seu início, do século XIX, cuja economia se baseava na exploração de café, então, catequizada por Padres, sendo predominantemente idolatra, com aversão ao evangelho, mantendo tradições fortíssimas de festividades pagãs, como a tradicional festa para sua padroeira Santa Ana e para São Joaquim, consideradas uma das maiores festas católicas do Brasil, se tornando assim, para a Igreja do Nazareno, um grande desafio missionário. 
Desde aquela data, a igreja tem feito um grande esforço para pagar o aluguel correspondente a R$ 15.000,00 (quinze mil reais) devido ao avanço econômico e valorização do mercado Imobiliário da região.
