We are Tim and Andrea Blazer, church-planting missionaries with ABWE in Fortaleza, Brazil. Since August of 2000 we have been in Brazil planting churches and training leaders. For 16 years we lived in Bauru, São Paulo, where we were involved in church-planting, orphanage ministry, and leadership training. In 2017, we moved to the Northeast of Brazil to the region of Fortaleza, Ceará. We have 4 children: Robert, Moriah, Julea and Levi. Our sending church is Magnify Church in Rockford, MI.



Tim and Andrea are two MKs (missionary kids) who met during High School and married during college in the USA (’94).  After a few years in local church ministry, we joined ABWE and started preparing to serve the Lord in Brazil as church planters.   Before moving to Brazil in 2000, God blessed us with our first two children:  Robert (‘97) and Moriah (‘99).   Several years later two more blessings arrived when Julea (’01) and Levi (’06) were added to our family.  Currently, Robert, Moriah, and Julea all live in the USA.  Levi remains on the mission field with us and has an active part in all our ministries.  We highly value the intentional spiritual formation of our children and rejoice in the fruit of God’s work and our dedication as each of them genuinely loves and serves the Lord.  


Participate in the Great Commission by preaching the Gospel, multiplying churches, training leaders, and mobilizing church planters in Brazil for the glory of God.


Our mission involves three key areas of service: church planting, leadership training, and orphanage ministry. 


ABWE is involved in a variety of different ministries throughout Latin America. Check out this video to discover more.
