Paul also pastored the Partners in Harvest church in Nova Friburgo until 2009, when his itinerant ministry to the Brazilian church led him to move to the city of São Paulo.

Following tragic flooding and landslides in the region of Nova Friburgo in early 2011, which became Brazil’s worst natural disaster, Paul returned to the city to work with recovery operations. This lead to him focussing on disaster relief missions, both with Iris Global and also with Crisis Response International.

Currently Paul lives in the suburb of Cordoeira in Nova Friburgo, where he leads a teens' group and continues to minister in disaster response missions, both locally and internationally.
