There are approximately 33,000 villages that have not heard the Gospel! If you have a passion for sharing the gospel with the lost we could use you on our evangelism teams. Every day groups depart from the boat and share the gospel one on one or in small groups with the people of the village. Each evening we have a small service where we share our testimonies and God’s Word. The Gospel is presented in a variety of ways in the Amazon. Because the Brazilian people are extremely relational we encourage all our team members to form relationships with the villagers prior to presenting the gospel message. The boats are equipped with tracts, Evangecubes, Bibles and etc. These tools are used throughout the day as the Gospel is presented to the crowds standing in line to see the doctor or dentist, one on one as evangelism teams go hut to hut. Literally, thousands have been impacted and have prayed to receive Christ as a result of hearing the Good News through Amazon Hope team members.
Our Fishin’ Mission trip combines Peacock Bass fishing with mission opportunities along the Amazon River. This trip provides the opportunity to enjoy some of the worlds finest fishing. At the same time, we participate in mission activities in local villages along the Amazon River. Sharing the message of Jesus makes us truly “fishers of men”.
The fishing focus for this trip is Peacock Bass, however, there are some “nice” size catfish on the Amazon River.
The trip price includes ground transportation, lodging onboard our 85-foot three-deck riverboat, meals, experienced fishing guides and boats.

Clothing & Essentials
Generous gifts of clothing, personal hygiene items, fishing gear and food are distributed with dignity and made available to every family of every village we visit. Please contact us the next time you clean out your closet or have extra personal hygiene items or donate to purchase fishing gear and food for those in need.
Twice a day the children of the village are gathered together to learn Biblical principles, sing songs, act out Bible stories and work on crafts. This time with the children can be highly personalized or your team can refer to our children’s curriculum specially written for Amazon mission trips. The children love to listen to all of the missionaries from the States so you can always count on a captive audience. Please refer to our Children’s Guide for more information.
Being able to read the Bible is something that many of us take for granted. American volunteers and Brazilian translators are trained to dispense reading glasses that improve the vision and daily lives of thousands of people each year. We are proud to provide thousands of reading glasses each year that allow new believers to read the greatest story every told. One that impacts their eternity!
A significant service that we able to provide is dental care. Many people along the river are in excruciating oral pain and we are able to provide instant help. Both Brazilian and American dentists help to improve oral hygiene and relieve suffering from acute dental issues. We now can provide better care than just extractions, but have a mobile dental kit that allows us to treat a wide range of dental issues in an efficient and effective way.
The fruit of Amazon Hope’s ministry is two-fold. The lives of the American team members are as greatly impacted as the Brazilian villagers they are ministering to. We have seen many villagers come to know the saving power of Christ along the Amazon and grow into mature Christians. We have also seen Americans learn spiritual truths they never knew before, grow deeper in their love for Christ, and become passionate about sharing the Gospel.
