We are the Daniel Family, serving in Brazil since 2008.
After completing language school in downtown São Paulo, we stayed there working
alongside another mission family in an area called Cidade Tiradentes - home to
Latin America's largest government housing projects. After a couple of trips to
Northeastern Brazil we moved to the city of Barreiras, in the state of Bahia,
in August 2011, where we still are today. Barreiras is the largest and
fastest-growing city in the western part of Bahia. It's an agricultural region
that boasts of exporting its cotton, coffee, watermelons, cocoa, corn and soy
beans. Literally it's a farmer's jackpot! There are quite a few foreigners in
the area - all farmers. So, we're often asked if we are involved in farming. I
like to say, "Yes! We're here to sow the seed of the Gospel!"
After a man from the church in São Paulo began the ministry
here in Barreiras, we came to carry on the work and help it grow from it's
infant stages. We praise the Lord that the past several years have seen growth
numerically and spiritually. The Igreja Batista Caminho do Rei (King's Way
Baptist Church) is located in the city's most populated neighborhood and we
have literally grown out of our current rental facility.
We are raising money to build permanent church facilities on property we've been able to purchase by God's grace and thanks to our generous donors. Donations
can be made through the mission agency to the "Barreiras Project"
We would like to thank you for your prayers and support.
