Brazil: Videos

These videos were created as education material for use in worship, youth groups, small groups, Sunday School, and other settings. The footage of the congregations, facilities, participants, and activities at Shade and Fresh Water Centers and at communities visited by the John Wesley Medical Boat, as well as interviews with Teca Greathouse, GBGM Missionary; Dot Ivey, IOH Chair; and UMVIM team members are compelling resources for any discussion about mission and global Christianity.
