Dan and Hope Owsley have been serving the Lord in Brazil, South America since 1988. They have lived in mega-cities (Sao Paulo – 20 million) and small cities (Cuiabá – 500,00, Petrolina 200,000). As Free Methodist missionaries, they have been blessed to be a part of many church plants. Often the churches were started by Brazilian “pioneers” and Dan and Hope came along to train the newly formed leadership and to help disciple new believers.
In 2012 they moved to Brasília, the capital of Brazil where they are part of a church planting team. The Owsleys have three adult sons living in the U.S. Their fourth, Andrew, still lives at home.
