Assis Chateubriand had 2 missionaries serving there in 1996 when I was in Cascavel (they were part of our zone and the Cascavel district), but evidently they didn't have much success because there was no branch included in the Cascavel stake the next year, and apparently still no branch.
I know they had no building and hardly any members, and those elders had frequent telephone reports to the mission president, at least once a week.

Thanks for the information. I think that there were several more cities in southern Brazil which used to have a Church presence but don't anymore. With the recent mission boundary re-alignment in the Curitiba, Londrina, Cuiaba, and Manaus Missions we will likely see more cities open around the Curitiba area in the near future according to missionaries in the area.

With the split of the Curitiba Mission this year hopefully missionaries will be able to began work in some of these unreached cities.
