Hi! I am Damaris Friesen

I am a full time missionary with YWAM in Brazil (JOCUM Monte das Águias). I serve in a ministry on base called Viva Hope.

Viva Hope is a non-profit project where kids from the community inside and outside the base can come and learn: arts, English, ballet, cooking, football and jiu-jitsu. Every day before we teach them about arts or other subjects, we take time to talk about God and tell them Bible stories. Our goal is to transform the community through the children, teaching them how to express their love for God in their daily lives and through arts, ballet, etc.

I first came to YWAM in the beginning of 2020 to do my DTS and stayed here ever since. I knew that missions was what God had in store for me, He showed me the need the world had for people that would speak of the truth and teach about His love. This is my fourth year with YWAM and my second year with Viva Hope. It has been a time of a lot of growth. I am expectant to see what else God will do in the community and in my life.

Will you consider partnering with me through prayer and financially so we can keep transforming our community?

Thank you!

With much love, Damaris.
