I'm going on a missions trip!
I will be leaving in less than 2 weeks for South Korea!
OK, this is going to be a lot of firsts for me. First time to fly, first time to go to another continent, and first time to minister to a group of individuals that speak a totally different language! *Whew!
But, I am extremely excited! I thank the Lord for giving me this amazing opportunity, and for providing the funds needed!
Specifics about Trip:
Going with: Ozark Christian Missions
Duration: 8 days
Purpose: To assist and encourage a small church in its annual conference. The church hopes to bring in new people to the church through this conference, as well as new children and youth.
What we will be doing: More thank half of our six member team will be conducting Children's Services in the morning and Youth Group in the afternoon. Some other members of our team will be teaching and preaching in the main part of the conference. Most of the children will be from the nearby neighborhood, many which have never heard the name, "Jesus." We will be "teaching them English" using Bible stories, songs, and games. The youth will probably be from the church.
1. Pray that each team member will be able to effectively communicate the Gospel to those to which we will minster.
2. Pray the hearts of the people and children will be prepared to hear and learn the material we will teach.
3. Pray that we will be able to present the Word of God in a way that breaks through the language and cultural barriers to speaks into the hearts of the children and youth, making an impact on their lives.
The last preparations are being made. Ministry tools are being gathered, lessons being completed, bags being packed. We are going to South Korea!
