About Bob Oliveira
In the expansive Amazon River basin, groups of people live in remote villages accessible only by boat. Their interactions with other parts of the world are minimal. This also means that access to proper medical care and to the gospel is almost nonexistent. Even deeper into the Amazon are indigenous villages, completely isolated. They are “the forgotten people.”
RCA Global Mission has partnered with the Presbyterian Church of Manaus (IPManaus) in Brazil to use riverboats for medical mission and evangelism to reach people along the Amazon River. Together, we will plant 100 churches. We will also train 100 Brazilian missionaries and send them throughout Brazil. Bob, who was born in Recife, Brazil, serves as a bridge-builder between IPManaus and partner churches and donors in North America. Bob wants Christians in Brazil and North America to work together to ignite church multiplication and transform communities along the Amazon through word and deed.
