Trip Details

In Fortaleza, Brazil, it is our honor to partner with NewSpring and Iris Global missionaries, Charlie and Du Sullivan. The Sullivans have been serving in Brazil for 10 years and partner with Iris Global to train missionaries, serve slum communities, minister to red light district workers, and disciple the community of Christians. On trips, we will come alongside their normal weekly initiatives in all of these areas to learn from them and breathe life and encouragement into all they do.
