Ted and Claudia are from San Diego. While serving as Program Director at the Forest Home Christian Conference Center, Ted got a phone call from a Brazilian who asked him to consider helping Brazilians train and send their own missionaries. In 1985 Ted and Claudia (and their two sons, Jeremy and Joel) moved to São Paulo and spent twenty-two years recruiting, training and sending Brazilians as missionaries to the least reached peoples and places around the world. In 2006 Ted and Claudia moved to southern Spain and now use Malaga as their base to visit, mentor and care for the more than 300 Brazilians now serving as missionaries in North Africa and the Middle East.
