Derwood Bible Church is sending a team to support our ministry partner, Sarita Romeiro, who serves with Open Arms Worldwide. Open Arms Worldwide mobilizes, prepares, equips and aids Christian leaders in establishing faith-based child and community projects reaching at-risk children and their families. Sarita specifically works with children of the indigenous tribes in the villages surrounding the city of Aquidauana.
