In August of 2016 we will be moving to São Paulo! Along with a group of over 300 missionaries, pastors, and volunteers, we are being sent to the heart and “epicenter” of all of Brazil. This has been very carefully planned and thought out for many years, and the time has finally come for this epic church planting strategy to take place. We believe São Paulo will be our focal point for raising up large teams of local missionaries to plant powerful missionary minded churches in all of the big cities of Brazil, and eventually the world. We’ve realized that if we focus our efforts and work together, we can reach many more people with the Gospel. We are actually continuing a strategy, called “Acts in Action”, that has worked well in the past, for example, in the city of Boa Vista, after 5 years, it was already the largest local church in town. Also, here in Fortaleza, after 9 years we have reached 8,500 members in the home church in the city, and 109 churches in our state of Ceará.
We are not looking forward to saying goodbye to all our disciples, cell groups, and leaders we have worked so hard to raise up, but we are excited for what God has in store for us São Paulo!
Please agree in faith with us for an increase in our financial support as the cost of living in São Paulo is much higher. We are confident that God will provide for us in miraculous ways and are so grateful for your continued generosity!! You are part of this!!
