Welcome

In this webpage you will be introduced to MISSION BRAZIL. We will tell you all about who we are and what we do. We hope you will find a way to participate with us, someday, on a trip to Brazil, so you can experience what we have to offer.

What we do? Where? With what?

MISSION BRAZIL is a service program of the Christian Life Movement (CLM) in Brazil. It is a set of short-term trips to Brazil, at any time of the year, where people from all over the world can experience a full organized schedule of volunteer service, that also includes Brazilian cultural experiences and multi-ethnical encounters. Dozens of deeply driven Brazilian volunteers/interpreters work alongside every mission trip, to ensure a very special experience of service and self-enrichment

At a certain point of our lives, we might discover a demand in our hearts to serve, to help and to love others more directly, to build bridges and meet new people, to bring comfort and support, to just be there for those in need. As Christians, we want to live up to the call Christ gives us, to be his disciples and apostles in the world.

Providing we understand this, what exactly can we do? And where? With what means? To whom? Sometimes these questions can obstruct the desire for service that could be flowing inside us.

MISSION BRAZIL will help you and your group to answer these questions. Once you have your group assembled, your tickets and fares paid for, you can rely on MISSION BRAZIL for a complete program of volunteer service.

Since the first mission trip,MISSION BRAZIL has gathered hundreds of participants in its programs, young people, young adults, adults and families. We hope you can have a powerful experience with us as well!
