Having formerly served with the Brazil Inland Mission, Inc, JoAnna Thompson joined the BGFM family on September 27, 2018. 


JoAnna is the daughter of David & Debbie Thompson and a third generation missionary on both sides of the family. Having grown up in Brazil, she has long felt the calling of God upon her life to serve Him as a missionary in Vitoria da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil. 


She received her Bible training at Calvary Bible College & Theological Seminary (2011) and began her missionary career in 2013. She ministers alongside a national pastor at "Vila America Church," works with children’s ministries, and a music ministry. She also works with children in the public school during a "religion hour" in which she teaches Bible stories and shares the Gospel. Her bi-cultural experience and knowledge of the Portuguese language and Brazilian culture gives her an advantage for effective ministry in Vitoria da Conquista.
