This coming April a team of parents and children from Reston Bible Church will be traveling to Aquidauana, Mato Gross do Sul, Brazil to serve with Open Arms’ missionaries, Sarita Romeiro and Eduardo Ribeiro, and participate with them in a children’s day camp. This will take place in the Limão Verde village of the Terena Indians. In 2014 Sarita began an outreach to children in this tribal village in partnership with indigenous Pastor Jonas and his congregation.
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.
