Joel Lippert cried out to God, frustrated at the struggles he and his wife faced in their marriage and with their inability to have children. He asked God to bring helpful people into his life, and within two weeks, ABWE missionary Randy Richner and his family moved in across the street. Through Randy’s witness and discipleship, Joel and his wife turned to Christ. 

Joel now partners with the ABWE Southern Brazil team in a church plant in Dois Irmãos, Brazil, using his profession as a chiropractor to build relationships in the community, integrating physical and spiritual care to share the hope of Christ.
