Let’s get you started with a little bit of information about what the team will be up to during their stay in Brazil.
In January a team from four DC Metro Area churches will be traveling to Brazil to come alongside Open Arms’ missionaries, to participate with them in a children’s overnight camp for roughly 400 kids. This will take place in the city of Assis, São Paulo where Open Arms began in 2006.
So what are our goals for this team? There are 3.
- Share the gospel with as many children as we can.
- Bless the national missionaries and the local church with the energy and excitement that a mission team always brings. This also helps tremendously to build interest in the ministry and makes it much easier for our local missionaries to expand their work with other local churches.
- Provide the members of the team with an opportunity to grow in their faith through exposure to the body of Christ in a completely different cultural context and promote an awareness of the need to proclaim the gospel around the world.
