Jorge Bittencourt shares what 2015 was like for our sister churches in Brazil:

Our baby church in Goiania, that started in 2010 after a brother moved there due to work reasons, finally started to grow more quickly in 2015. They had sacrificially grown to about eight disciples until 2014, and after we sent them a support mission, the church went from eight at the beginning of 2015 to 22 saved souls in December. They meet at a house church and routinely have around 50 people in their home!

Before 2003, we had been sending new missions in Brazil on average just over every two years, our last one in 2001. After a long 15-year hiatus, we’re excited to send again a mission team to Ribeirao Preto, a city with a metropolitan region of 1.1 million people in the state of Sao Paulo. This planting mission is the first effort to be funded by the Brazilian Missions Fund (BMF), that the Brazilian churches formed just over a year ago.
