Mission BrazilAbout Maceió
Maceió is the capital of the state of Alagoas and is located on the coast between Recife and Salvador. The city was founded in the 18th century from a sugar cane estate close by the mouth of the Macayo river, a name that derived from the Indians, who lived in that area. Maceió is one of the nicest beach destinations in the Northeast of Brazil. It has about 750,000 residents, with the majority of the population surviving with one minimum salary or less. The state of Alagoas is, despite appearances, characterized by extreme poverty.
About Village Campestre
You will not find the poorer districts near the beach, but on the other side of the city, literally the backstreets of Maceió: Bendito Bentes, Clima Bom and Village Campestre. In this area you will find a small Reformed congregation: A Igreja Reformada do Brasil.
