Jonathan & Tamba Abel
Pastor Jonathan and Tamba began serving in Brazil with AFLC World Missions in 1992. They both grew up in Brazil, speak Portuguese, and have the necessary visas to live there.
Although the Abels have ministered in a number of ways over the years, they are presently working in the city of Maringá, where Jonathan is pastoring a church. Maringá is about an hour drive from our seminary and Bible School in Campo Mourão, where Jonathan also teaches on a regular basis. The church in Maringá previously met in the Abels' home, but in recent years the group was able to purchase a piece of property and build a new church on the site. Jonathan and Tamba continue to reach out to the community around the church to draw people to the Lord.
