Central Brazil Mission with Earl and Ruth Ann Haubner

Brazil Trip

This mission is an excellent example of great principles at work: the training of nationals, strong partnerships with churches, outreach into remote villages AND strong effectiveness in cities, meeting of physical needs, and the priority of Biblical teaching. This is an amazing ministry at a very exciting time, and in a very responsive area. You will be amazed at the scope of work of these partners.

Welcome to CENTRAL BRAZIL MISSION Project Amazonas: Christ, Life, and Health
We are thrilled that you are considering a trip and hope you will enjoy your visit with us. We, Earl and Ruth Anne Haubner, are all excited about the future of our CBM Ministry. We have a very faithful group of supporting churches and Christians involved in our Central Brazil Mission Ministry. Many of them have now been here to help us with an “Amazon Boat Ministry Trip” and others are scheduled and confirmed for future trips. We already have trips through 2022 and 2023 and are now working on our agenda for 2024. Our CBM Project Amazonas: Christ, Life and Health is a ministry of partnership which involves many Christians that faithfully pray
and supports this mission work.
We came to Brazil in July, 1969 and we just celebrated 52 years of missionary service here in Brazil in July of this year (2021). We live in central Brazil in the city of Goiânia. Goiânia is a city of over one million people just 3 hours south of Brasilia, the capital. We have been so excited with our supporting churches at how they are growing and their new interest in missions. We praise God for the vision He has given us for reaching people with the Gospel and helping meet their needs. We believe that part of our ministry is to continue the ministry that Jesus started. He did say: “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21). And when He started his ministry He made it clear as to what God wanted Him to do. He said: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18, 19). Since we began this ministry in the Amazon region of Brazil we can certainly see the need for a ministry that will meet the needs of the whole person. That’s why it is called: “Project Amazon: Christ, Life and Health.” We want these people to know Jesus and to have “an abundant life” in and with Him.
