The second Brazil Nazarene Missions International meeting was held 22-24 February at the Nazarene Camp in Tinguá, Rio de Janeiro. Nearly 60 leaders from all regions of Brazil were present, including several other national ministry coordinators, representing 19 of the 20 districts in the country.
“By participating in this meeting of leaders today, we can already dream of a tomorrow of great involvement of Brazilians in the mission field,” said Manuel Lima, Brazil sub-regional director.
There were celebratory services, informative talks, and strategic planning sessions at the meeting. Important decisions were made for the future of the NMI ministry in Brazil that aim to strengthen mobilization and missionary sending.
“To God all honor, glory, and power,” said Antônio Carlos, Brazil NMI national coordinator. “We are aligned in unity. Our national meeting of NMI district leaders was spectacular. It comes down to one certainty: God is doing something new in our midst. We are a beautiful team spread out all over Brazil.”
The Church of the Nazarene in Brazil is entering a new process of missionary awakening, and they look forward to what God will do through these new initiatives.
