Before departing Brazil to return to the States for law school this past June, returned missioner Heidi Cerneka was profiled by O SÃO PAULO, a Brazilian newspaper. The interview, titled “Fighting without losing hope and tenacity,” is published here both in its original Portuguese and with an English translation. Throughout the Q&A, Heidi recounts her experiences in mission and relates the accomplishments of the Prison Pastoral Ministry team, along with the significant ongoing challenges within the Brazilian prison system.
