We are Maikon & Tati Borba. We are both native Brazilians who 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 graduating with a degree in Bible and Ministry from Harding University (Searcy, AR), we want to start a bilingual ministry. We will love to combine our new-acquired knowledge in Bible and Missions with our expertise in English teaching to help Brazilians and 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.

Pastors’ Conference


Today, Maikon and several other Bible majors attended the Ouachita Baptist University Pastors’ Conference. We heard two great speakers, writers Marving Pate and Scott Duvall, speaking on the Book of Revelation, chapters 1 – 3.

Mission Fair + GO Meeting

Today we had a busy day! We’re so excited to see what the Lord will have in store for us in 2019!

Plans for Summer 2019

Possible sites for mission trips in the summer of 2019

Hello everybody!

We just had a dinner meeting with Ken Graves (Harding University’s Global Outreach) and some other students from the university. We’ve talked about possible sites to do mission trips and explore in the summer of 2019. We have also spent a good amount of time talking about team formation. Here are the options we have:

1) a kids summer camp in Lithuania;

2) a survey trip to Portugal (possible future mission site for us);

3) Let’s Start Talking project in Brazil (Florianópolis again);

4) a survey trip to Florida (another possible mission site for us).

We’re excited for what the Lord may have in store for us. Please continue praying with us! 🙏

Outreach America – Guided by Christ: Friending People of Peace

This weekend, Maikon participated in “Guided by Christ: 
Friending People of Peace“, a workshop organized by Harding University’s Outreach America. It was a moment in which we all got to introduce ourselves and share with each other our plans and dreams for missions in the USA and abroad.

Summer Report

Do you want to know more about us? Take a look at what we did in Brazil this past Summer. It was an amazing adventure, serving God and others.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV)
