Igreja Batista Independente in Brasiléia, Acre, Brazil was the first work we started. It had its first service on May 31, 2000. There was only my family (at that time just 4 of us) plus two visitors, Maria and Herlan. Since then God has greatly blessed and given the church so much. Igreja Batista Independente was organized on August 23, 2003. As of June 2006, the church has been under the leadership of a national pastor, Pr. William Cruz.
