One of the primary targets for the Brazilian missionary movement has been the country of Mozambique. This former Portuguese colony in eastern Africa has been the focus of many missionary groups from Brazil.
On Tuesday, a Brazilian missionary was murdered in that country. According to the news report in, Duraci Epinger “was a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, and she had worked in Mozambique since 1998.”
Please pray for the missionaries from our sister churches who are currently working in Mozambique, as well as for the family and co-workers of Ms. Epinger.
On a personal note, a good friend of ours, Haildelene, is raising her support in Brazil right now to go to Mozambique. Pray for her as well.
