It is our vision and focus to plant churches and to establish a base that can accommodate other missionaries and/ or those who are being raised up for ministry
Our plan is to attend language school and while attending language school we will explore rural Brazil, west and southwest Brazil specifically, the farming communities and small towns. Our next step would be to find the area with the most need, those little red or orange dots on the map that signify less than 2% Christian. Once we find that location then we will begin to search for a central location around the greatest need to establish a base. Once we graduate language school we want to quickly and smoothly transition to the new location, walk around the villages praying and helping anyone out that we see needs and will accept it. Then invite them and their families to our place for supper serve them Jesus. Plant a church, begin street preaching in the town, raise up leaders that are capable of reproducing Christ in others and spreading the gospel. Turn the church over to the people and establish a pastor. Oversee the local pastor and repeat. The goal will be to plant as many growing, self sustaining Christ-centered churches as by Gods grace and power that we are able. To bring blessings to the communities by Acts 3:26 “When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”
Well that is our plan and our vision in a nutshell. This is the outline that we are planning to follow. We have no idea how long it will take or the obstacles that we will face. We just want to proclaim Jesus to the overlooked rural communities of Brazil. To bring in those from the back roads to the marriage supper of the lamb and make sure they are dressed properly for the occasion. We want to establish a good enough base so that in the future we can accept other FIRE missionaries, short and long term, to help spread the fire of the gospel. I spent a little time at Hogan’s camp a couple years ago and am basing a lot of our vision on what I saw and learned there. Their problem was not the harvesting but the lack of harvesters. I expect to have a similar problem, but also expect God to bring the right people at the right time. We just need to keep our focus on the vision and especially on Jesus and on our family My family is currently my team and it is up to me to lead them and not be a hypocrite 1 Peter 5:1-4

Well the holiday season has come and gone, but since God is outside of space, because He created it, He is not bound by it and therefore He is everywhere and is always here. The questions is how aware of Him are we in our lives. As we worship, pray, read...read more
