We began our morning with worship in a sanctuary and preparing our minds for the day ahead.

Shortly after, Rita, the pastor Paulo’s wife, came to teach a biblical perspective on finances. She works with an international organization called Compass, and this was her first time presenting in English.

She provided us with practical advice as well as an outside perspective of consumer culture.
