Global Impact: Brazil

In Brazil, our Global Impact Teams work side-by-side with missionaries Jason and Kristyna Schuring to share the hope and love of Jesus with unreached people groups. We meet practical, day-to-day needs by sending teams to help with construction projects and medical professionals to equip missionaries to better serve the indigenous people, as well as providing medical supplies for the infirmary. We have helped construct a building to be used as a secured garage and storage area, repaired a pier, and cleared the water at the boat-landing site on the river. We are also working to provide curriculum and Bible stories to be translated for the children living in the jungle.

Location Information
Brazil has a 4,655-mile coastline and borders all but two South American countries. The country is most commonly identified with the Amazon Basin, but its southeastern section is a complex mass of ridges and mountains.

Team members will stay in the Ethnos360 base home in Macapa. Team members will travel by truck and small boat into the jungle where sleeping arrangements vary from house, covered shelter, or tents.
While in Macapa, the team will eat local cuisine from restaurants and street vendors. Once in the jungle, team members will enjoy home cooked meals including locally sourced meats and vegetables.
Lightweight, comfortable clothing suitable for working, closed toe shoes, and other personal necessities. Most importantly – a heart willing to serve our missionaries and support them in the most practical ways possible.
