Planting Churches

Training Leaders and Helping Plant Churches

Welcome to Xingu Mission


We are here to serve the people of Brazil. We believe that the best way to serve the people of Brazil is to help them discover the love, grace and hope found only in Jesus Christ.

We seek to obey the commandments of Jesus to baptize, disciple and teach about the Kingdom of God. We also see the Kingdom expanding by training leaders and planting churches.

We have been serving the people of the Xingu region for over 15 years. Our operations cover such a large area that we have divided our operations into three regions; Altamira, Portel and Marabá. In the USA we are known as Xingu Mission, and in Canada Xtreme Mercy.

Xingu Mission is a non-denominational, charitable organization.



Planting churches, training leaders, and helping the poor are part of the Xingu Mission DNA.

Updates from our Missionaries

Pumpkin Pie

Bella and I have figured out how to make great pumpkin pies. My part is to buy the pumpkin, build a fire in the outside clay oven, and put the whole pumpkin in there. After a few hours, you can stick a fork in it anywhere. It is all soft. Then Bella scoops it out, […]


Our dream is to plant a thriving church that will be good news in this neighbourhood, a place where children can come and play, where families can come for a walk, and where people can get training for things that will be helpful to them. This week a grandma came to talk to me, to […]

The Amazon

            Emma took this photo of an iguana in our yard. Water lilies grow wild in this region. I planted this one in our yard. Every night it blooms, and every day it lays back down in the water. Go to Source

Soccer and Volleyball 

The community comes together for the week-end before Christmas for a Children’s event, a volleyball game, a “Marrieds vs Singles” soccer game, and other similar festivities. Via heads down the hill to help with the Children’s Christmas Event. Bella serves in the volleyball game. The Marrieds Team won over the Singles Team, so now the […]

Hibiscus Question

While red hibiscus flowers have yellow dots in the middle, white hibiscuses have red dots. Do you think God thought this through on purpose, or do you think He created a formula for hibiscus-flower, color-combinations, and then was Himself surprised at how beautiful they turned out? Go to Source

A Good Reminder

Here is a devotional thought from Bella’s journal. Apostle Paul sets a high standard for us to follow, “when we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly” 1 Cor. 4: 12b-13a. Go to Source

Who is Your Neighbor?

Two of the Girl’s Group had birthdays. Bella, Emma, and Aline lead this group while Deanna is gone. This week I made several trips to the hospital with Bruno, who got his leg broken in difficult circumstances. His sister always comes along to help Bruno get through the hospital system. She waits with him all […]
