"The Fazenda is a village of forty inhabitants, the youngest one is about to celebrate his first month of life. The “farm” is composed of a dozen houses, in the middle of the forest. The organization of this little world is astonishing.
Everyone fills a role to contribute to the life of the village: wood-cutter, cook, repairman, farmer, artist, and baker.
Heart’s Home Missionaries come from Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Argentina, Senegal, and France. There is also a priest, Padre Arnaud, who is the leader of the village. We all share the life of the families, adults and children in need. The Fazenda has the mission to welcome any people in great distress. The length of their stay depends on the time needed for each individual to rebuild their life.
Everyone is loved and befriended in a healthy and simple environment, which helps to heal their body and above all their hearts. Each person welcomed to the Fazenda has a history full of suffering and pain. I will introduce you to my new friends as I continue to write my letters."
