HS Trip

Thank you for your prayers for the High School Trip. 19 students and 6 adult leaders went to the Amazon River delta island of Marajo. We partnered with Sociedade Bíblica do Brasil who took us on their boat to 4 towns along the coast of the island. In each of the towns the students presented Christ--usually in the public schools and the town praça (square in the center of town). Our first day was probably the busiest presenting 5 times in schools and once as part of an all-but-rained-out public event in the praça in Ponta de Pedras. In a town called Curralinho, several of the students shared from their hearts—testimonies, songs, teaching--during an hour-long Christian radio program.
I would estimate that in all for the trip, a thousand people were able to witness the gospel through large group and individual presentations using paint talk, dramas, music, testimonies and more. We pray that some of the seed would find good soil and those who professed faith would connect with one of the churches we partnered with. The greatest blessing for me was to see God work in and through the students themselves. I was moved to tears on more than one occasion when I saw students using their gifts for God out of their own inner passion for Him.
