Lee (American) & Regina (Brazilian) are church-planting missionaries serving in Brazil through the Converge Southern Cone Initiative (portions of Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay). Brazil's overall population is greater than 207 million people, with 29 million people in the three southernmost Brazilian states who have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. During the past eight years the Blochs have focused primarily on church strengthening in cities south of São Paulo, investing in church leaders who are now working to strengthen other national church leaders. In 2017, the Blochs shifted their ministry focus to church planting. Their goal is to plant churches in least-reached areas of Southern Brazil and to help Brazilian churches multiply and develop Great Commission pathways into all the world. Lee and Regina want to see the Gospel preached to the least reached—those who have never heard of Jesus. They invite you to be part of their team and part of what God is doing in South America by joining them in routine prayer and monthly financial partnership today.
The project assists with the cost of purchasing a vehicle for use in daily ministry. We are relocating as part of the Southern Cone Initiative team to reach 30-million least-reached people in the three southernmost states of Brazil with the Gospel.
This project will fund a regional workshop where we will continue working building national partners from other areas of Brazil of the need in Southern Brazil. The tens of millions least-reached people of Southern Brazil will benefit indirectly through encouraging Brazilian pastors to be informed and partner with us in how God is working to spread his gospel.
Since returning to Brazil on our second deployment our family has been renting an affordable and furnished Airbnb. This is not a good long-term solution. This project will pay for appliances, furnishings, and relocation expenses for our family moving from our current ministry location in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil approximately 8-hours south by land to the state of Santa Catarina. We are relocating as part of the Southern Cone Initiative team to reach 30-million least-reached people in the three southernmost states of Brazil with the Gospel. Thank you for your partnership with us. Lee & Regina
