Razão para Viver
(RPV) is making disciples across Brazil, but the
Portuguese-speaking world extends far beyond South America's largest
country! People speak Portuguese as their heart language in 10 countries.
isn't just the mission of our leaders at our headquarters . . . and when
you join us through prayers and donations, you're not just supporting
missionaries doing isolated work in individual countries. Vision 195 has taken hold of our international
pastors as well! They're each on mission with us to make disciples in their
languages around the world . . . and to equip those new disciples
to train others in additional languages they speak.
Last spring, RPV met Fernando and Eloisa Andrade, missionaries in
Lisbon whose focus is on training leaders. We're excited about exploring
possibilities with them as a door into Portugal. Around the same time,
another missionary, Renata Santos, came to RPV's office. Miss
Santos has an audio/video ministry for Portuguese-speakers in Guinea Bissau
along Africa's western coast. She came to ask for RPV's help in
growing her technical skills. When she returned to Africa, she spoke with a
station manager about RPV. His response stunned us: "Fernando
Bochio? He was my professor!"
Today RPV's solid, biblical teaching rings out in Guinea Bissau!
We're also making connections in South Africa in Angola and Mozambique.
Will you join us in celebrating God's growing Razão para Viver and pray for us as we follow Him
into Africa and beyond? As they say in Brazil, "we are eating cake by the
edges" and can't wait to see what's next!
