(Brazil)–Elsewhere, new laws in Brazil could have an interesting effect on how evangelists work in the isolated regions of the country. Global Advance’s David Shibley describes this as a challenge to men like Pastor Nelino, who traveled 25 days through the Amazon to attend a Frontline Shepherds’ Conference. Shibley says Nelino left the meetings encouraged and with new vision. However, “He’ll also be facing some protectionist clauses of new laws that are protecting these tribal groups from any kind of outside incursion. This is both a plus and a minus, particularly for missions.” Shibley believes Nelino’s earnest search for a way to minister in tribal reaches led to a solution that benefits the community as a whole. “Nelino has already committed that he will help educate the children of these tribal groups, and in that way, provide for them, educationally, and also as an entrĂ©e to get the Gospel to them.”
