Encontro Com Deus UK are proud to announce that we welcomed a new trustee recently!
Katherine Taylor has been to Brazil twice, on the 2017 and 2019 trips, and has such a strong connection to Brazil and Encontro Com Deus. We are really excited to see what is in store for Katherine's role in ECD UK!
We asked her what her favourite things about Encontro Com Deus were, and here's what she said :
1) being more involved in the charity
2) helping to plan the next trip (!)
3) telling different people about ECD, the work that is being done and seeing peoples reactions.
4) being able to grow in my faith through this great charity
5) seeing the children grow from trip to trip.
Welcome, Katherine, we are thrilled to have you on board!

ECD UK Trustees meeting...
During a pleasant afternoon amidst copious tea and coffee on the 29th September, the trustees of ECD UK discussed the annual report (watch this space to read all about it), the next trip to Brazil (watch this space to hear all about it) and even welcomed a new trustee (watch this space to learn all about the woman herself). So many exciting things are happening and it will only get bigger and better!

Sunday 29th September was a wonderful day for Encontro Com Deus UK, as the president of ECD Brasil, Patrick Reason, was visiting!
He spoke at St Peter's Church, Woolton, Liverpool, and brought updates from Brazil as well as guidance.
Shortly after, a Q&A session was held with Patrick, and later that day, ECD UK had their annual trustee meeting.
Over the next few weeks we will be sharing with you some of the fantastic things about that day!
What a beautiful partnership between Brasil and the UK 🇬🇧🇧🇷

#TBT: The magic of ECD:
We asked one English person about what had really stuck with them about their visit to Encontro Com Deus, and this is what they said:
"That morning moment... When the children would greet you with big smiles, insisting on saying 'Bom Dia!' to everyone, it was so heartwarming. It really put life into perspective: many of them had so little, but they had so much love to give. 2 years on, the memory is so vivid. It never leaves your heart"

Looking forward to leading two teams there again in Oct & Nov to visit Patrick, Alessandra, their staff and, of course, the children. With missiondirect.org!!

Encontro Com Deus is committed to always developing in order to better protect the children and families in its care. We are really excited about the new rooms for the technical and administrative staff, and can't wait to show you the rest of the space!

Wow that's plush 😍
We always love a visitor!
Last week, the National Secretary of Social Welfare, Mariana Neris, came down to ECD to meet with the mothers and children in the homes, who have suffered from situations of vulnerability and violence.
Mariana took time to meet with the psychologists, social workers, teachers, carers and the leadership team, who do the invaluable day-to-day jobs at ECD. We are hopeful that the Federal Government in Brazil will begin to consider how to replicate this service and the work of Encontro Com Deus in rehabilitating and protecting families, learning from the pioneering work that they do in Curitiba.

Can you believe it has been 4 months since this fabulous team jetted off to Brazil and made lifelong memories for themselves and the kids over in Brazil? Amazing!
Think you could be part of a team like this? Or just want to find out if there's anything you can do to be more involved with Encontro Com Deus, keeping children off the streets and protecting vulnerable mothers? Get in touch!
