BRAZIL – POUSO ALEGRE
We are partnered with a church in Brazil based in Pouso Alegre led by Amaury and his family, Amaury has been a part of YCC for many years and has planted the church with the same heart as us.
The Braga’s story
Let me introduce my family to you: I’ve been married to Celeste for over 28 years. God has given us two blessed boys, Filipe and Andre. In our ministry, Celeste and I have served the Lord as full time workers for His Kingdom since 1982, when we got married. We planted churches in Brazil and then in 1995 we were sent to the UK as missionarys by a group of churches.
We were part of the ‘Go to the Nations’ ministry and we lived one year in Edinburgh, Scotland and three years in Barnstaple, Devon. God gave us the opportunity to share on unity and prayer and also to promote whole nights of prayer. We have done it in Brazil way before we moved to the UK and had the chance to continue to do it.
We became members of YCC back in 1998 and had planned to move to Yeovil in 1999. However in the midst of this process I was invited to work as a DAWN Latin America Prayer Coordinator. After a good time of prayer we shared with the YCC leaders and we all understood that God was calling me to work with DAWN. Then we decided to stay based in Brazil to develop the work in Latin America, though we are members and missionaries of YCC. In 2001 I was invited to be DAWN International Prayer Coordinator moving to Colorado Springs, CO, USA, and worked in about 100 countries.In 2003 I moved back from Brazil and worked for DAWN from Brazil to the rest of the world.In 2008 I resigned as the DAWN International Prayer Coordinator and started HORA – Men in Prayer – based in Pouso Alegre, Brazil. http://www.homemora.com
