Rodney and Anne Anderson
Rodney and Anne Anderson have been missionaries in Brazil since October 1993. They live in Araguaina, a city of 160,000. Araguaina offers Rodney and Ann an ideal first term situation. There is a strong church in existence with a Brazilian evangelist, a 30-year veteran missionary family, and a new house church being started on the other side of town. The combination of strong church and new church allows Rodney and Ann to learn from the successes of the past and gain experience in church planting.
In the larger existing church Rodney is in charge of care groups and training their leaders. Ann is in charge of music. In the new house church, Rodney is busy with calling and evangelism, preaching at times, and serving as a resource person for Lacerda, The Brazilian who began the church. Rodney and Ann hope to continue aiding the Brazilians as they plant new churches in unevangelized areas.
