Get To Know The Matias Family

Both Laura and Felipe, have a calling to work with children living in at-risk situations. They became friends, started dating, got married, and formed their family, all while serving the Lord on the mission field in Brazil.

They first served as missionaries in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, with Youth With A Mission, which works with children at risk in various capacities (Felipe from 2004-2015 and Laura from 2007-2015).

In 2015 they moved their family to the city of São Paulo to serve at a ministry called Casa Semear (the Sower House). At Casa Semear (2015-2020) they helped run ministry programs for children and teens living in slum communities, continually teaching the Word of God and sharing the gospel.

From 2020-2022 they served as youth leaders at a local church in São Paulo, while Felipe also worked toward completing a seminary program.

Currently, they are focusing on starting a ministry in a slum community called Vila São José.

They are missionaries with the Brazilian Evangelistic Associationalso known as BEA.
