Overall goal of going on a trip: To learn, encourage and fellowship with our brothers and sisters around the world, coming alongside them in love, and at the same time receiving what God wants to do in our hearts ultimately changing how we live.
What we look for in potential team members: We want people that are faithful, available and teachable.
Commitment: 12-16 week commitment to the whole process of pre-trip, trip and post trip debrief.
Mission work will be done in the Favelas (slums) of Sao Luis, Maranhão, in the northeast region of Brazil. Our teams will partner with a missionary family that was called to Brazil six years ago to work with children in some of the poorest neighborhoods. Projeto CASA offers Bible and Portuguese instruction to children in four neighborhoods. Teams may be asked to help in the following ways: teaching Bible stories, holding sports camps, parenting and life skills training for adults, VBS, crafts, home visitation, prayer, sharing hope even when their circumstances cause them to believe they have none. The San Luis trip includes a possible “rest day” at the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park.
