"As the Father has sent Me, so I send you."

- John 20:21


John and Alta Hatcher



John and Alta Hatcher have served the Lord in Brazil from 1955 until 2015, planting over 70 churches that are still in existence. Their latest work was in Assaí, Paraná, where nearly 75% of the 25,000 inhabitants are of Japanese descent. The name Assai means "sunrise" in Japanese. 

The church in Urai is thriving under Pastor Marcio who also holds services at a mission point in Rancho Alegre about twenty miles away. They also have a mission point in Sussumo, which is in another section of town. The seminary in the Cornelio Procopio Area is going well and the church there has congregations in two cities. God has raised up a group of faithful men there! Sixteen men are studying in the Cornelio Procopio Seminary in 2015. 

John was raised at First Baptist Church of Alexandria in Kentucky, where he was saved at the age of 9. He and Alta have been married 64 years. Together, they raised 5 godly children while serving Brazil: Lynn (who is now in Heaven), Paul (who serves in Manaus, Brazil), John Mark (who serves in France), David (who serves in Manaus, Brazil), and Kathy (who serves in Manaus, Brazil with her husband Odali).
