Central Brazil Mission – Project Amazonas: Christ, Life, and Health

Central Brazil Mission

Central Brazil Mission is a faith based mission that falls in line with TaleMed dedication to support our local and global communities in any way we can. The Central Brazil Mission – Project Amazonas: Christ, Life, and Health was founded seventeen years ago by Earl and Ruth Anne Hauber. CBM is a boat that has been retrofitted to act as a medical clinic that houses doctors, nurses, and many other volunteers. The boat runs along the Amazon river. It goes out on multiple ten-day trips per month to service remote villages with medical needs. This mission is funded by hundreds of churches, organizations, and individuals that believe in the work of CBM and are dedicated to reaching these villages to meet their needs medically and spiritually. 

“We came to Brazil in July 1969 and just celebrated 47 years of missionary service here in Brazil in July of 2016. We live in central Brazil in the city of Goiânia. Since we began this ministry in the Amazon region of Brazil we can certainly see the need for a ministry that will meet the needs of the whole person. That’s why it is called: “Project Amazon: Christ, Life and Health.” We want these people to know Jesus and to have “an abundant life” in and with Him.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         – Earl Hauber
