Getting Ready

Hi, everyone!

It's official! Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul it is! Words can't begin to express how excited I am for this new adventure! I will be leaving sometime in late August or early September, but this will depend on the length of time it takes to get my visa. Hopefully, this will not take terribly long (prayers are appreciated for this!).

Santa Maria is in the most southern state of Brazil. Looking at the map above, there is a little arrow pointing to Santa Maria. I'll be working there with women and youth ministries in the Diocese of Southwest Brazil under the guidance of The Most Rev. Francisco de Assis da Silva, who is the Bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Brazil and the Primate of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil.

I'll write more when I have more information over the next few weeks. Thank you for stopping in to check out my blog!

  1. Hey Rachel,
    I'm one of the YASCers for the 2015 year, and just learned that they want me to go to Brazil as well! I'd love to talk more about your experience and learn from you. Feel free to email me at rachel.schnabel@gmail.com
