Ag e no r & y mil Fa In 1987 Agenor and I went looking for another city in which to start a work. The same day we came back with the keys and a contract for a storefront in the neighboring city of Pitangueiras. Agenor partnered together with me in handling the meetings in Pitangueiras. Land was purchased and in 1991 construction of the church building was started. Upon his graduation from the Bible institute, Agenor was ordained into the ministry and became the pastor in Pitangueiras. Under his leadership the church grew to a membership of over 100. He faithfully served there until 2013 when he joined the Brazilian branch of BIMI and became involved in a mission project in Rio Branco, Amazonas. They are involved in the planting of the New Canaan Baptist Church. Their plans are to plant new churches in this rural area until Jesus comes or calls them Home. Another new work was started in 2002 under my leadership in the city of Barrinha. Agenor’s son- in-law and daughter, Joselio and Ademilde, are in the leadership of that church. Joselio graduated from our Bible institute and Ademilde graduated from Missionary Jimmy Rose’s institute. In 2014 Pastor Joselio took over the leadership of the church in Sertãozinho. Pray for us as we seek a new pastor for Barrinha. The Lord provided the key man whom we needed in the ministry. We are so thankful for Agenor de Souza Almeida who labored alongside of us in opening doors, not only in the cities but also now in the remote fields of Brazil. W Kirk & Kathy Hickok 13
