Amazon Lifesavers Mission School

For years, Amazon Lifesavers Ministry, has been working with volunteers, who soon after arriving at our base in Manaus, were sent to live in river villages. But the reality of life in the Amazon is very different, and we felt the need to prepare our missionaries better. Thus began the Amazon Lifesavers Mission School in 2013. For the first 4 courses, classes were held in an improvised environment, but since the 5th course, the classes are being held in this beautiful building, which also serves as our administrative offices. We graduate 2 groups per year, one in each semester. Via the classes on Missiology, Missionary Psychology and Country Living, the students have the opportunity to learn more about the local culture. Hydrotherapy, Nutrition, Home Life, and culinary classes teach our students to live more healthfully. During classes about evangelism, Daniel, Revelation, and church organisation, local Pastors help prepare the future missionaries to gain information, that is essential for anyone who would like to share Jesus with others.
