Dave Guiles (center, dark shirt) and Steve Bailey (right) are representing Grace Brethren International Missions at a first-ever gathering of mission agency executives from the USA and Brazil.
Sponsored by EFMA (the Evangelical Fellowship of Missions Agencies), the gathering seeks to promote understanding and networking between older and newer mission agencies.
Guiles is GBIM’s executive director and a former missionary to Argentina, and Bailey ministers in Argentina and oversees GBIM’s Latin American ministries.
Brazil was selected to host the gathering because the evangelical church there is currently sending out 3,200 cross-cultural missionaries. GBIM is one of 100 US-based members of EFMA.
