(Brazil)–Next, the Latin American Church is growing and vibrant. Christians in Action’s Bob Spencer says he’s excited about the future of the church in Brazil. “There has been a lot of seed sown into Brazil. Brazil is a church that has tremendous potential, and it is now realizing that potential. I would say that Brazil is a totally different church than it was 25 years ago, when I went to Brazil. There’s just been a lot of maturing process, a lot of vision.” Spencer says because there are challenges facing Christians in Brazil, he asks people to pray. “It is a storehouse of missionaries. It’s a storehouse for world evangelism. They have a vision, they do have the potential, they do have the resources. But, I think that the obstacles are in the area of economy. They are going to have to try harder to support their missionaries. They’re going to have to learn as a church what long-range commitment to missionaries can mean.”
