Rainforests, carnival, music, parrots, cities - what comes to your mind when you think of missionary Brazil? Welcome to the Missionary Brazil page
- where you can meet a missionary in Brazil, and get a close look without leaving home.
To be a missionary in Brazil, you don't have to be a blogger. But apparently it helps. Of all the missionary blogs I read, I don't think any country dominates quite like Brazil! But of course, Brazil is not only the 5th largest country in the world in size, it's also the 5th largest in population. No wonder it leaves a big footprint in the missionary blog landscape. And at least three that I know of have been blogging since 2003 - veterans in the world of missionary blogs!
Missionary Brazil blogs - the veterans
One of the earliest missionary in Brazil blogs was done by a team. The blog isn't updated much anymore, but you can still check out Mission Salvador, started way back in January 2003 (those were the days).
Two days later one of the Mission Salvador team members branched off into their own blog, which is still going strong. Visit Quirey Life to read the adventures of Valerie and Russell. Both of them blog often, so it's great to hear different perspectives. Check the links on their site to find blogs from other members of their team.
Arguably one of the most popular Brazil blogs is Comings Communiqué. Dating back to the summer of 2003, Andrew Comings has typed his blogs, video taped his blogs - he's even blogged by phone! Andrew's wife, Itacyara, is Brazilian herself. The unique, insightful and often humorous blog entries keep many of us coming back for more.

Be sure to stop by and get to know James and Christen and their family at The Taylors Magnifying Christ in Brazil. Their blog always very informative through great pictures, video and news updates. They've been blogging since September 2006.
I'll leave you with one more missionary Brazil blog. This one from a different perspective - that of aviation. Brian Wood teaches Aviation Maintenance theory at the Escola de Aviação Asas de Socorro (School of Aviation, Wings of Help). Brian's blog is the newest of all, starting just in September 2005. He and his wife Shirlee also have a photo album with some excellent pictures linked to their blog.
