"Where is Tomás?"


Everyone was looking for Tomás, a 9 years old boy who lives in a Mennonite community.  It was 7am and we were all having breakfast at their house and Tomás said he would like to have a photo with his mom, because he doesn't have none. While his five siblings were very happy to be photographed,


Tomás didn't like when he heard is father saying that "the wife wouldn't take a photo because it's unnapropriate." She smiled and said "My hair doesn't looked very good, that's why." He tried to convince his father, but it didn't work. Extremely disappointed, he stayed inside his house, observing me and his siblings from the window.


The Mennonites are a religious group of Russian, German and Dutch background who has migrated to Latin America in the 80's. Families have a simple life without electricity, cars, telephones, television, or other 'developments of modern life'.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Ora, o SENHOR disse a Abrão: Sai-te da tua terra, da tua parentela e da casa de teu pai, para a terra que eu te mostrarei.
E far-te-ei uma grande nação, e abençoar-te-ei e engrandecerei o teu nome; e tu serás uma bênção.
E abençoarei os que te abençoarem, e amaldiçoarei os que te amaldiçoarem; e em ti serão benditas todas as famílias da terra.
Gênesis 12:1-3
