Hello, we are Edson Nascimento from Brazil, and Leora Nascimento from the Bahamas. We have been married since 2004 and have one beautiful daughter named Lily. Since 2001, we have been working (volunteering) as fulltime missionaries with the organization called Youth with a Mission.

Youth with a Mission is an international, interdenominational, volunteer organization of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM, our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known, through evangelism, training, and caring for those in need (mercy ministry). YWAM currently operates in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries.

Our vision as a family is to mobilize the church for missions, encouraging and awakening them to their duty to obey the great call to go into all nations and preach the good news. Our focus is mainly young people; to help them realize that they too have a responsibility to answer the call and can use the gifts and talents that God gave them to reach the lost.

Missions is what God has called us to do and is our passion. What can we say about it - 'we absolutely love what we do!' We have worked in about 10 countries and visited over 15 countries over the past 11 years training, discipling, evangelizing and taking young people on missions' trips.

Over the years, we have been blessed to see many lives transformed and saved and had the privilege to watch many young people step out of their comfort zone and share the Gospel. That has been a great reward!

Thank you for all your support, prayers, offerings and financial giving; for partnering and walking through this journey with us.
