How did God call you to Spain?

It was in 2012 with an DTS campaign team here in Spain. After we returned to Brazil, a concern remained in my heart related to Spain. In September 2013 (one month before my wedding) Junior called us and invited us to come and be part of the pioneering team of YWAM Vigo. So on our honeymoon, my wife and I prayed to the Lord who gave us specific words and a certainty in our spirit that we should come and be part of this team and help pioneer with Junior.

What is one thing that you like about Santiago de Compostela?

The possibility and opportunity to connect with people from all over the world.

What do you like to do in Santiago with free time?

I like being near the Cathedral and in the nearby plazas where I can see people and admire the architecture of the area.

What is your favorite quote of the moment?

There are men who fight one day and are good. There are others that fight for a year and are better. Some fight for many years and are very good. But there are those who struggle all their lives. Those are the indispensable ones.

Bertolt Brecht

Tell us, what is God teaching you in this season?

To live one day at a time, sure that He is with me in each of these days, whether good or bad, it does not matter, He is with me until the end of the century.

What is your passion in life? How can we help you in this?

My passion is traveling, getting to know new places, people and cultures, as well as studying and teaching. I love learning more and more, from various subjects. To have access to information through books, articles, documentaries, or even through relationships with people listening to their experiences related to their cultures and beliefs.

What is your favorite pastime or sport?

Watch series or a good movie.

What is one thing that you have learned during the Quarantine?

I am learning to deprogram and slow down. Live every moment at once.

What is the first thing that you will do after the quarantine ends?

See my friends, and go back to non-virtual relationships!
