Get to Know Kathrine Valcourt

Hi, I'm Kathrine Valcourt. I minister in Brazil Sao Paulo.

Ministry Description

I will be involved heavily in youth ministry while I am in Brazil. I will be helping out with three programs called Vinde Meninos, Vinde Teens, and Vinde Moms.

Most of the kids that come to the WOL ministry live only about three minutes away, but they live in a very poor community. Their parents are addicted to drugs and alcohol and the kids are not taken care of.

Vinde Meninos is specifically for kids ages 4-12 from Monday through Thursdays from 12-5pm. They have fun doing activities, crafts, games, reading and board games. During the day we supply them with lunch and snacks. They are taught things that are considered so simple and natural to us, such as brushing their teeth, because they are not taught these things at home. They also learn things such as cooking, crafts, sports and Bible memorization.

Vinde Teens happens Tuesday and Thursday mornings. They come and we serve them breakfast and go through devotions with them. They also learn things such as cooking, English, soccer, and music. Afterwards, they eat lunch and then go to school.

Vinde Moms is provided for moms to get together and eat food and have arts and crafts while we interns provide daycare for their children.

I will also take part in a discipleship program where I will get to disciple a couple teens/kids regularly. I will be pouring into them and sharing the Word of God with them, helping them to grow in their relationship with the Lord.

About Kathrine

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior when I was nine years old, but it wasn't until I was eighteen that I really started to live for Him. When I was eighteen I went on a short-term mission trip to Costa Rica and while I was there, the Lord stirred inside of me two deep desires. The first was just a desire to love Him and live for Him so much more than I ever had. The second was a stirring for missions work. While in Costa Rica I was given a small taste of missions and I loved it. Since then, the Lord kept bringing overseas missions to my mind as something I might do with my life.

This past spring I went on another short-term mission to South Africa. It was there while serving alongside my classmates and teaching the youth about Christ that I knew missions was what the Lord had for me. I cannot imagine holding the gospel inside of me instead of shouting it out for everyone to hear.

If we are faithless, he is faithful, for he cannot disown himself. - 2 Timothy 2:13
