  Based on some pieces of information, and mainly on Prof. Marcus Maia's
  report, it became clear to me that:

    a) one and the same missionary institution can be duplicated into
    several national institutions which mirror itself (egs. ALEM, in Brazil,
    Vision Mundial, in Equator etc,  created in image of SIL);

      b) there is a (hidden) partnership among legally distinct missionary
      institutions, due to an overlapping which make of them faces of the same
      thing (as perceived by the indigenous communities);

        c) damage is caused/can be caused to the indigenous communities by
	missionary institutions whose understanding of serving God is reduced
	tame/ to change the other and everything which identifies him as an
	individual/ as part of a group.

	  So now, it is urgent that a serious attitude be taken collectively
	  order to change the situation.
