Connecting People to Christ
Our world’s 6th most spoken language is Portuguese. Many of these speakers live in Brazil, a melting pot of nations with a blend of many cultures. What an opportunity for you to partner in using media to share the Gospel—to light the path to Christ for people coming from a variety of backgrounds living in a highly concentrated area.
Because of ministry support from people like you and a clear Gospel message, people are hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ over the Internet, on their televisions, and through radio in a country that has been struggling politically and economically.
