A thank you to all the team – Brazil Mission trip

Posted: July 30, 2014 in Evangelism, Leadership, Life, love, Me and God, Me and people, The Church

We just came back from an amazing mission trip to Brazil. We (the team) enjoyed and saw God’s hand working –often very miraculously, in the lives of the children, volunteers and our team. As usual coming back from these type of activities, we are on a high. We came from battle victorious, we won the cup, we made it!!.

Nevertheless, it would be an incomplete picture to enjoy the victory and blessings of the trip without sharing the spoils with the rest of the troops.

In the book of 1 Samuel 30, we read of a battle that David fought and won, and he shares the victory  -not only with those who fought alongside him, but with those who stayed behind ‘holding the fort’, those who couldn’t go, those who supported his campaign in other ways.

 .. The share of the man who stayed with the supplies is to be the same as that of him who went down to the battle. All will share alike.”

– 1 Samuel 30:24

So, HUGE THANK YOU to all of those who, without coming to Brazil, were just as much part of the team, and of the victory.

  • Thank you to those who gave financially and contributed to our trip.
  • Thank you to all of you who supported us in prayer –believe me, God showed up!
  • Thank you to all of those who stay home watching kids, baby-sitting, grandparents, friends, roommates and husbands/wives who held the fort while their spouses were out in the front mission lines. We could not have possibly made it without you.
  • Thank you to all who suffered being away from their parents, kids and friends, your moral support gave us the strength to go on.
  • Thank you to all who helped to prepare the logistics of the trip beforehand. That in my opinion, was a huge contributor to the overall success.
  • Thank you to all who faithfully give to Graystone Church.

Because of all your support, many orphans kids were loved in tangible ways, the Gospel of salvation was preached, physical, emotional and financial needs were met, volunteers were encouraged, hope was raised, policies were changed, local missionaries were recharged, team members were challenged to serve more and with higher levels of commitment

It was a victorious campaign, and you all who helped, were just as much part of it.

Thank you!!
