JoAnna Thompson Souza
Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil
Birthday: March 1
Academic History: Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri Bachelor’s in Bible and Music
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.
