Tom and his late wife, Penny, have planted four churches; three are under national leadership. They have two sons: Captain Thomas Latham is a chaplain in the Space Command, and Shane is a missionary in their city. Their daughter Kosette is a housewife in Mobile, Alabama. The Lathams have been missionaries for 50 years.
Our state of Rio Grande do Sul has seven million people, with many cities of 50,000+ people that have no fundamental Baptist church.
