Hello!

We are Maikon & Tati Borba. Right now we are Bible and Missions students at Harding University in Searcy, AR.

We are both native Brazilians and we are looking for opportunities to work with churches of Christ in any of the following: (1) Brazil, (2) Florida, (3) Portugal, or (4) any other place the Lord may lead us into. We were former ESL teachers in Brazil and, after our graduation (May 2020), we want to start a bilingual ministry. We will love to combine our then new-acquired knowledge in Bible and Missions with our expertise in English teaching to help Brazilians and/or other immigrants by helping them learn English through the Bible. We are looking at either partnering with a local CoC or forming a team to plant a new church.

Missions Advisory at HU

On Friday and Saturday (Jan 25 and 26) we attended two Missions Advisory meetings at Harding University. Tati and I got to make good and valuable contacts for possible future supporters. One of these contacts was brother Donald Collins from Hot Springs Village, AR. He attended the event and wanted to meet us and learn more about our plans for South Florida.

The Ross Family

This week we got to meet the Rosses. They are missionaries in Paulínia (São Paulo state) in Brazil. They are currently in the USA on their furlough. Michael, Vicki, and their kids are very sweet people and we loved learning about their beautiful work with the church in Paulínia. We pray many blessing from God to y’all! 🙏

Spring Semester 2019

Maikon’s books and Bible for this semester

In this upcoming semester, Maikon will be taking 5 classes (Christian Teaching, Practicum in Missions, Chronicles, Elementary Statistics, and Music Appreciation). Tati will be taking Evangelism and Church Planting, and will also be auditing Maikon’s mission class. We’re excited for our classes and look forward to a lot more learning! 😊

Lunch Meeting

Today we had a lunch meeting with Scott Emery, the Director of Hispanic Teams at Great Cities Missions. We got to share with him (and his wife Holly) our plans for South Florida. It was very encouraging to know that Great Cities is indeed interested in starting a Brazilian work in the Deerfiel Beach / Boca Raton area. Also, Scott seemed to like us quite a lot. We really admire the beautiful work that Great Cities has done in Latin America and surely would love to work with them in the future. Prayers appreciated! 🙏

Prayer/Dream Meeting

This Friday Tati and I met with some families in the BMIN Program. We wanted to share with them some of our dreams for future mission work in South Florida or Portugal. Mr. Marvin Crowson (Director of Domestic Missions at Harding University) was there with us too. We all fellowshiped, ate pizza, talked about our survey trip to Deerfield Beach / Boca Raton this past November, and prayed about possible team formation. We love these families and would love to team up with them! ❤🙏
