WHO IS AMAZON HOPE?

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.  Hebrews 6:19

Amazon Hope was founded in 2015 with the vision of taking the Good News of the Kingdom — the Hope of Jesus — to the forgotten and unreached people of the Amazon River. That vision remains the same today.  


Amazon Hope is a non-profit mission organization which supports Brazilian churches and other organized ministries in spreading the Gospel message of Jesus Christ throughout the Amazon River Basin. Four million people live along the river and tributaries, where as many as 33,000 unreached villages have never heard the Gospel.


We take Christians from all walks of life to serve in short-term missions through the Amazon. This ministry establishes relationships with residents, opening the door to share the love of Jesus with them. 


At Amazon Hope, we aim to be the hands and feet of Jesus. In Jesus's parable in Matthew 25, He says, "I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me" (Matthew 25:35-36). We take Jesus's words to heart and know that bringing the Hope of Jesus means that we love people the way that He loves people — caring for the whole person and meeting them where they are. Amazon Hope provides dental care and eye care, as well as clothing, personal hygiene items, fishing gear, and food. All services and items are distributed with dignity and made available to every family of every village we visit. 


Whether it's by praying, going, giving, or sending, will you join us on this beautiful journey? May it be on the Amazon as it is in Heaven.
