Brazil, the graduates

Time to Celebrate!!

Bible School Graduates "from every tongue, tribe and nation!"

Six men have graduated from The Cades Barneia Bible Institute led by the Terena Church in Brazil.

Terena Bible School graduation. 12, 2021

Missao Emanuel do Brazil, directed by Fred Silva, is a steadfast supporter of the Bible Institute and the Terena Church.

The Cades Barneia Bible Institute has, for more than 40 years, been equipping members of Indigenous tribes in Brazil to share God’s love and the truth of God’s Word in their communities.  Of the 6 graduates, 2 are from the Waura tribe and  3 are from the Xavante tribe.  The Bible Institute is located in Anastacio, Mato Grosso do Sul State, Brazil.  A number of the instructors are themselves from various Indigenous tribes. 


6 more men to faithfully share God’s Word to those who still haven’t met Jesus!  What a privilege they have.  Each graduate now has the opportunity to be a part of God’s eternal plan, that  ‘people from every nation, every tribe, people and language’ will hear Jesus’ message of salvation.  


Missao Emaneul do Brazil has, for a number of years, come alongside the Institute, helping with things like replacing the roof, renovation of classrooms and the library, contributions towards food for the students and provision of computers for online classes.  


It was a joy for Fred to be able to travel to Anastacio for this graduation, the first time he has been able to travel since the beginning of the pandemic.  While there, he was able to connect with other church leaders in other villages.
