Owsleys in Brazil

  • Missionary Diary Entry #4

    (This happened a few months ago, but is a good example of how the Lord helps us at every turn.) Dear Diary, We just had a visit from superintendent Pastor Marinho whose church is growing at an amazing rate; he told us that although he is busier than ever, he has never been more at rest in …

  • Child-Like Faith

      Our new pastor and his family have been in Brasília for a month and we’ve loved their enthusiasm and vision for the church.

We knew Peterson and his wife Adriana when we served in Cuiabá years ago. Adriana was a student at our Free …
