City of Refuge

Brazil – August 10th-19th,2017

MORE International currently has projects in 11 different locations around the world. In all of these locations we were always open to host US church mission’s teams. They have enabled us to expand our work in various ways. For 2017, we have decided to organize a trip to the City of Refuge in Brazil. People from different US churches will join us for 10 days that we know will be a life changing opportunity.

Our 2017 mission trip will happen this summer. Our destination will be Brazil, where we are building the City of Refuge, a 62-acre property where Persecuted Christians will be hosted and go through our resettlement initiative. Most of these come from the Middle East.

Since 2013, MORE’s refugee program has hosted more than 220 refugees, originated from Syria, Pakistan and other nations that suffer from Persecution.

The City of Refuge (click here for detailed project) will stand as a beacon of Hope where our brothers and sisters will find dignity and a new home-nation. Now it’s your turn to help us build it. Will you join us?

Main Goal

This trip will be focused on the construction efforts for the City of Refuge and therefore it is important that the volunteers are in good health and fit for engaging in such activities. However, there will be opportunities for those that are interested in doing children’s ministry, visiting local Brazilian churches and connecting with MORE’s staff that is currently working in the City of Refuge.

For any questions about this specific trip, e-mail us at [email protected] or call us on (856) 341-3461 (Judy Owens).
