RIO DE JANEIRO Edge of the Community

From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  

Took this photo along the drive to Christ the Redeemer, this past  Saturday. 

Up on that mountainside is the largest community in all of South America. People are born, raised and die there, spending little time outside their community.  I'm learning that the societal classes do not mix here.

I put the original photo (pictured)  in photoshop and came up with this colorful new header. 

Tomorrow, at the invitation of a local pastor, I'll be going into another community, where his church is.  We'll be making colorful story ropes,  a way for women to tell the stories of their lives inside the community. There are so many hard stories in these places.  It will be a blessing to serve there.


  1. What a great header, Marge, and so appropriate. It looks like one of your collages.

  2. Thanks Jo. Photo shop is fun to play with!
