In February of 1962, Jim Jones moved with his family to the city of Belo Horizonte in Brazil. Originally staying at the first-class Hotel Financial, the family soon settled onto the street of Rua Maraba, surrounded by doctors, lawyers and other professionals.

The mysteries surrounding Jones's work during this time is a matter of debate. It was during this period that Jones first visited British Guiana.

The family moved back to Indianapolis in December of 1963.
