Marcio Alexandre de Moraes Santos, executive director of the Minas Gerais State Baptist Convention, recently presented medallions to Wayne Jenkins and Dwight Lowrie for their work in evangelism in Brazil. They were recognized in late July during the annual Brazil mission trip among the top 100 influential persons in the area of evangelism in Brazil. The medallion marks 100 years of Baptist work in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. Jenkins, who retired in early 2018 as evangelism and church growth director for Louisiana Baptists, has now led 34 mission trips to Brazil. Lowrie has helped coordinated the trip for many years and is pastor of Liberty-Eylau Baptist Church in Texarkana, Texas. This year’s trip resulted in 3,212 people who accepted Christ as their personal Savior. The Baptist Message will have a story on the mission trip in the Aug. 23 edition. Photo by Craig Beeman.
