Planting 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.

#8203; Dear Friends and Family, We appreciate your prayers and support, and wanted to give you an update on the things that have been going on in our lives and in the Macapá Vineyard.

Discovery Bible Studies – Eight Month Review

The youth in the Marabá church are starting to experiment with the DBS model. In the last couple of weeks, they started 14 new groups. Nine stopped after only one or two meetings. Five of these new groups are still going, and many of the young people are looking for other people who may be […]

Scarry Night

Hello Friends and Family at Home! As you may have already heard, last week, my house was robbed while I was sleeping. It happened at around 4:00am. I woke up and saw a man taking both my computer and my cell phone from a table on the side of my bed. I jumped up and […]

31 Questions about Discovery Bible Studies

Questions What should I do when the group only want to study one time? What are the lists of verses we can use for Discovery Bible Studies? What happens at the end of the 26 selections in the Creation for Christ study? How long should I persist with a group? What happens when many in […]

Lost in the Light

Hello Faithful Friends and Supporters! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying a mild winter. Honestly, I would love to be cold right now—not freezing—but cold sounds great. I would wear a scarf and a sweater and curl up my hands in the sleeves and drink hot tea. I would watch the early […]

Cristoval 2016 Pacaja

Cyndi and I had the privilege of traveling to Pacaja on Monday to teach at their Cristoval ( a retreat that the Church hás during Carnival so that families can get away and do fun things together instead of being in their neighbourhoods with a lot of ‘binge partying’). I spoke  3 times in 2 […]

January 2016 Newsletter

#8203; Dear Friends and Family, Thank you for your prayers and support. They have been greatly appreciated. Denise and I have been in Macapá for almost 3 months now. Living here has been a completely different experience than our time in Altamira. For one thing, in Altamira we had a huge safety net of other […]

Welcome to the New Year

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I must admit, seeing pictures of my family gathered around the cozy living room opening presents made me a little homesick. Something about being in 90 degree weather makes it hard to get into the Christmas spirit. It’s just not the same. […]
