Team of the Week: Embrace the Beyond

A final "push" is being made to make sure every tribe & language in the South Pacific hears the Gospel in this generation. Churches have been challenged to "Embrace" a people group by adopting, praying for, & going to these peoples that have not heard- places where no one is going! More info & boots on the ground is needed. 

With only a map, GPS, & your backpack, travel from village to village, sleeping where you can, sharing the Good News, encouraging the Christians you find. Bring back solid information about unreached people groups. Build relationships that will later be followed up on as you gather information about the people. 

Your first stop will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. Your team will then fly to your final destination for the summer. Following your ministry time you will return to the US for a joint debrief... sharing all God has done.

Meet Annie!

Meet Annie. I called her Ate Annie all summer. (Because when you call someone 'Ate' in the Philippines it means that she is your big sister and it is a sign of respect!)

Ate Annie showed me so much... Her love and desire to follow Christ is like none other I have seen. She helped change my passions, my desires, and how I look at everyday life. She is full of wisdom and Christ's love!!

Please pray for her as she mobilizes the Philippines!

Note:  Annie and 3 others (2 Filipinos & 1 American) are serving on a Traveling Team for the next several months. In partnership with the Mindanao/Visayas Convention, they are conducting mission & evangelism seminars & mobilizing young people to serve on Filipino Nehemiah Teams. Each of the team members has to raise their own support. Email us if you'd like more info on how you can support this team.
