Michael and Ivonne Walmer

Missionary, Uruguay, South America

As a young teenager, Michael Walmer accompanied his parents to Brazil. He began his ministry in 1979 as a youth leader in the district headquarters church. He married Ivonne González in 1984, and they founded the church in Rio Grande, in extreme southern Brazil. In 1986 he took a pastorate in Novo Hamburgo, Rio Grande do Sul. After eight years as an AIMer, Walmer and his family returned to the States in 1990 to attend Bible school. He and his wife received their missionary appointment in October 1992. He graduated from Christian Life College the following June. After completing deputation, the Walmers pioneered a new work in Recife on Brazil’s northeastern tropical coast. In just a few short years they saw the work develop to 12 active churches and pastors, along with a Bible school program. In May 2006, the Foreign Missions Board approved the Michael Walmers’ transfer to Uruguay.
