The life story of plumber Valfredo Rodrigues do Amaral, 55, reflects his faith. Like many native Brazilians from northeastern states, he left his hometown, Bahia, migrating to the city of São Paulo in search of better pay and working conditions. The start was preceded by difficult seasons to achieve financial stability. Valfredo oscillated between periods that he could assume the costs of rent and that asked for "asylum" in the house of relatives. "I was very humiliated when I depended on other people. I tried to contribute in many ways. They did not eat what they bought by saying that they were spoiled, and several times they heard hisses on the phone while talking to friends saying they could not get visitors because I was there. I was very sad, but I never wanted evil. I prayed every night believing that one day God would change my life and put me up there. "

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you, Luke 9:11

In addition, 25 years have gone by. Besides the problem with housing, Valfredo was an alcoholic. Completely drunk, the plumber first witnessed the words of the Apostle Valdemiro Santiago on the television of the bar he used to attend. "That day I thought, 'I'm going to this place! I believe I will receive a blessing there. ' And, thank God, ever since I put my feet on the World Cup, never again has a drop of alcohol come into my mouth. " Freed from addiction, the great dream of having the key of the house in hand begins to take shape. He works hard and saves all the resources he gets. The money is invested in the purchase of land in Parque Taipas, in the northern part of the capital of São Paulo. "Today, I'm already going to the third slab and besides the place that I live with my wife, I have two rental houses. God has done many things in my life and family, "he says.
