Dili, East Timor / Timor Leste
Aaron & Noemi Arsino were accepted as new TCM Team missionaries to pioneer a brand new TCM work in East Timor. In March 2018 Aaron joined TCM International Director, Ben Anderson, and veteran Portuguese-speaking missionaries Gomer and Nene Indino, to survey East Timor. Survey trips gather information on the spiritual demographics of the country and receptivity of the people and government to gospel outreach, estimated expenses for a missionary living there, visa requirements, suitability for singles/couples/families from varying nationalities, and local contacts. Aaron plans to move to Dili, the capital of East Timor in May 2018 to follow up with contacts and find suitable housing for his family. Noemi and the children will follow within 3 months. Gomer and Nene Indino are praying about relocating from Brazil to join the Arsinos.
