The Right Step Program is a social project that benefits boys and girls between the ages of 10 to 16. There are exceptions in the age bracket for older kids who have been through the program and still want to continue. The kids are, for the great majority, from families who struggle financially. The Right Step Program is not in place to help financially but to help in an area that we were all lacking at some time in our lives, spiritually. The church in the city of Cajazeiras has grown substantially in number, due in a big way to Right Step.
The Federal government in Brazil gives grant money to approved social projects, as well as, other benefits for those being served. The costs are many when caring and training over 100 boys and girls and you, the church, have supported this work to this point. I am not writing to ask for money. I am writing to let you know that we are trying to be approved by the government for grant money. It is not just the money that would be beneficial. If approved, Right Step might even be able to provide dentists for the kids, who do not go very often, but hey, who really wants to. (Sorry, dentists, but I'm sure you've heard that before), a bus could be requested for use on trips to other cities at no cost to the program, also balls, uniforms, and other accessories could be provided. Those are the more costly things Right Step could offer.
* that GOD'S WILL MAY BE DONE in approving or not approving this request;
* that the Right Step program can continue to be a great evangelistic tool for the Lord's church;
* that God may bless the church in Cajazeiras with spiritual maturity.
