(Brazil)–And, thousands of ministers and missionaries are receiving advanced training through one group to share the Gospel in Brazil. “We also are very involved in training Brazilians who are missionaries who go out to other countries and to Indian tribes in Brazil, we write many articles that pastor’s use in their sermons or just help them to pastor better. We are involved in much research that helps people to decide where to plant churches and what methodologies are different options for them as they develop their healthy churches.” Richard Duncan works with OC International in facilitating training those with a heart for the lost. “We have 257 Indian tribes in Brazil, 103 of those have no evangelical presence at the moment. And foreigners are no longer allowed to go in and be a missionary to the Indian tribes in Brazil, so we really have to join hands with the Brazilians that are becoming missionaries and going to these tribes.” Over one-third of pastors in Brazil seek out OCI for training.
