Fernando and Janaine Basso

The Basso Family has worked among the Bara people of Madagascar since 2013, when God called them from Brazil to enjoy God’s mission among this people group.  

Fernando is an Agricultural Engineer and Jana is a Teacher.  

After learning the Bara language, they started the Coworkers (Cooperadores) Project in 2015. 

The Coworkers project is a diversity of strategies that aims to bring Glory to God, through Jesus Christ, in the redemption of Bara People Group, in partnership with local Malagasy church. 

Today, our ministries include:                

Children Program: We have listed more than 300 children that come every Saturday and every Wednesday in two different places (villages) to listen to Bible stories, sing and play.                

The Jesus Film (in the Bara language): The Bara people are a visually oriented culture, so the Jesus Film has been an excellent approach to sharing the gospel. We’ve shown the film in over 80 Bara villages since 2016, with great results.

Farming in God’s Way Program: As an agricultural engineer, Fernando teaches and helps the community to improve soil fertility, crop productivity, bug and weed control, with agriculturally sustainable practices that fit in the environment where the Bara live. The Bassos also use farming as a tool for evangelism.

Evangelist Training: We have trained more than 100 evangelists in missions since 2015. Our program includes training in: Missions in the OT and NT, Evangelism strategies, Story Tellers Program, and a Disciple makers program. We also provide them with tools that can improve their work as evangelists, including study Bibles, biblical commentaries, and bicycles.  

Audio Bible Distribution: More than 85% of Bara People are illiterate, so this is a good strategy to reach them with the gospel. Working with Justine, a Bara believer, we translate, record, and upload Bible Stories that are culturally relevant and point to Christ, the only hope.                

Relief Program: We provide help and social assistance to children and widows in difficulty.                

Church mobilization in Missions: We alone cannot accomplish the task; we need workers. The church is full of them. We train and mobilize the Bara church to accomplish its task of reaching their own people.                

Supporting local pastors in evangelism: we help provide financial support when pastors/evangelists are going to evangelize Bara people.

In partnership with Servants of Christ International Ministry, we have blessed three Lutheran churches by providing roofs, and one Assembly of God church, building the floor.
