Jose Antonio has been a disciple since 1996. He serves as an elder in the church in Sao Paulo, Brazil and has greatly impacted the church there. His wife and daughter Nicole are also disciples who serve the church faithfully.
Jose Antonio earns his living giving motivational lectures to companies on work ethics and also safety and security in the workplace. When Covid hit in March 2020, this kind of activity came to a complete halt for more than a year and a half. Unemployed, this created immediate hardship for Jose Antonio and his family. He was helped by the church in Sao Paulo, but due to the limited resources of the church and the needs of his family, he had to take on debt. Although Jose Antonio is currently starting to work again, his family is still struggling financially and are requesting assistance to get through their difficulties. The amount of money he needs is a one-time help of $1,000.
