This team will be working with Amazon Outreach. They support churches and other organized ministries in Brazil in spreading the gospel message of Jesus Christ throughout the Amazon River Basin. By partnering with indigenous churches in Brazil, they are seeking to reach unreached people in the 30,000 villages with no gospel presence, pastoral leadership, or biblical instruction. Join this team to be a part of this work while also spending time connecting with God and others. The trip is open to anyone, but our hope for this team is specifically to see fathers bring their children to serve together.
