Peoples of Northeast Brazil

“Over 10 years ago, Tonya began working as a translator with our volunteer teams from the United States,” writes the NE Brazil Team. “She not only had great proficiency in Portuguese and English, but she was passionate about the lost hearing the gospel. Today, Tonya is the mother of three young children and is married to a Baptist pastor who has recently completed his seminary training. They have moved back to their home state and will be leading their first church plant. A volunteer team from Kentucky will be working with them on January 20-28. They will prayerwalk the intended area of the church plant, and they will do some initial interviews and, hopefully, have opportunities to share the gospel. Please pray for Tonya and Peter as they take on the huge task of planting a church and raising a family. Pray that the U.S. church will encourage this couple and help them to make an impact on the area.”
