Miss Bronwen Hewett (working in Brazil with UFM Worldwide/Crossworld)

Bron Hewett is a missionary based in Arame, Brazil particularly working with the Guajajara indians and training their church leaders.

CrossWorld was founded as Unevangelized Fields Mission in 1931 with 36 missionaries serving in the Congo and Brazil. Today nearly 400 missionaries serve on 80 teams in 25 ministry areas of the world. They serve the church around the world by mobilizing teams to make disciples and train leaders. The love of Jesus has compelled CrossWorld missionaries to follow Him to the far places of the world. At the beginning of the 21st Century, they are still whole-heartedly committed to that work.
