South America

Tentmakers Bible Mission serves in South America to plant independent, non-denominational churches. The ministry of evangelism and discipleship is accomplished through many different avenues. Activities such as camps, concerts, holiday activities, street evangelism, teaching seminars, and tract distribution as well as personal contacts are all used to present the gospel and impact the communities where churches are being established. Your financial support of any of these projects places you on the team for the work of the Lord even if you never physically go on a foreign mission trip.

Paulo & Janis Alencar
Fortaleza, Brazil
Our mission is to reach souls with the amazing salvation message, planting churches that can have effective evangelistic outreach. “For a great door and effectual service is opened unto me . . .” (I Corinthians 16:9a)

Bill & Tracy Coupe
Loja, Ecuador
We love the Ecuadorian people, and our desire is to present the good news of the gospel to many and to see hearts and lives transformed as they place their faith and trust in Christ alone. Through faithful teaching of the Word we are able to share the difference between being religious and having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Wayne (Skip) and Betty Harkins arrived in Brazil on February 15, 1963. They began in southern Brazil with a riverboat ministry on the Parana River.

Ronnie & Meela Heerah
Sangre Grande, Trinidad
The prayer of the leadership of HOPE Community Church (a ministry of Living Hope Ministries) is that this ministry environment will be a place where people will encounter Jesus Christ and experience healing of their past, help for their present, and have a correct perspective of eternity. Our goal is to be a healthy established reproducing church by 2016.
Daniel & Mattie Melendez
Tarapoto, Peru
Our mission is to plant Bible churches, preach the Gospel, and disciple the believers. When we were in Peru we were serving the Lord in the Community Bible church. This church was planted by other missionaries from TBM five years ago. We worked alongside other missionaries to help strengthen, edify and grow this church. We were involved in various ministries, including adults, teens and children. Our focus is on teaching the Word of God. Right now we are helping out in our sending church in Vermont. Daniel is serving as a leader in the worship services and Mattie is serving in the music ministry. In Texas we will be assigned a Spanish speaking church to serve in, where we will be involved in a variety of ministries.
Delwin & Techy Fowler
Tarapoto, Peru
Our passion is to teach books of the Bible as we start churches and evangelize. As we are doing this we are making disciples, teaching and training leaders. We started Community Bible Church in Tarapoto, Peru in August of 2007. The church serves not only the community, but is a model church for the training of the area pastors. We also travel occasionally to nearby villages for camps, conferences or mini Bible Institutes.
