AMEI Women’s Conference

At the beginning of May, AMEI (Association of Indigenous Evangelical Women) will host the first women’s conference since the pandemic. Corina Terena Dias and other Indigenous women have been planning the event. Travel is always complicated with long distances and geographic issues. Please pray that God pours out His grace on the conference and supplies all their needs.  

Ammi Training Center

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

The new school year is underway at the Ammi Training Center. Representing 13 different ethnic groups, there are 17 first-year students, 13 second-year students, and five third-year students. Please pray for the education and discipleship of each student. 

Bible translation in Brazil

South America Mission sent volunteers to the Ammi Training Center in Brazil, where they helped with logistics, transportation, and food prep for a Bible translation workshop hosted there. 

There are many tribal groups in Brazil still without the Bible in their language. Bible translation is a collaborative effort and includes linguists, translators, consultants, and teachers. SAM was grateful to provide space and volunteers for the workshop. Please pray for unity and accuracy in the translation process.

Indigenous pastors in Brazil

We are praying for pastors in January!

Edimar, Elenildo, Izaque, Zico (graduates of Ammi Training Center), and Esdras (partner of Ammi) are pastors in Brazil. Please pray Ephesians 3:16-19 for them,  their families, and churches.

“I pray that out of his glorious riches, he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Ammi Training Center

Thanks to the financial resources and a service team from two churches, the Ammi Training Center has a newly renovated children’s room! The staff at Ammi are grateful to have a beautiful space to care for and teach the students’ children. Please pray for the children and childcare staff at Ammi.


Movement Mortgage has had a relationship supporting SAM ministries since 2017. During the first week of October, a team of 6 traveled to serve alongside our ministry in Recife, brazil. They helped with painting and construction projects at our ministry office and retreat center, as well as hosting a “mini checkup” where members of the community had opportunities to come and get their glucose levels, blood pressure, etc., tested. It was an impactful week working alongside them and inviting some of our Brazilian friends and partners to serve in the work as well. Please pray for continued opportunities for partnership with Movement!

Touch of the Master Music School

Toque do Mestre (Touch of the Master) music school in Recife, Brazil, sees music as a platform to reach their community for Christ. Through teaching music, they are able to instill values of learning to glorify God through creativity. There have also been several students who began to serve in their local church’s worship band upon graduating from the program. Please pray that God will continue to use the Toque do Mestre to reach the youth of Recife, Brazil, with the gospel!

Ammi Training Center

One part of the curriculum at our Ammi Training Center is traveling to indigenous areas to serve and share the gospel. One of the tools they use to share the gospel is the “book without words,” which is an illustrated telling of the gospel. This semester, we had teams travel to serve in Paumari, Amazon and Kayabi, Mato Grosso. Please pray that God will continue to use the Ami ministry to reach the Indigenous peoples of Brazil with the gospel!

Children’s Day

October 12 is Children’s Day in Brazil. It’s a nationally recognized holiday where families take the day to celebrate their children. Please pray for the many children the Brazil team engages with through their ministries!
