Team Brazil feels compelled to strengthen the families that reach the unreached! After much prayer and consideration ten team members will be traveling to Anapolis, Brazil, June 23rd-July 4th , to refresh the Wycliffe Brazilian missionaries at their annual conference.

This team of Wycliffe missionaries has committed their lives to reaching the various unreached people groups of Brazil with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With this compelling call and passion come unique challenges to fulfilling their biblical responsibility to make disciples within their home. We have all faced the tension of doing something big for God outside the home and the passion to maintain the biblical responsibility of the mission field within the home. It is a godly tug of war and we are compelled to encourage, equip, and engage these missionary families to win on both fronts; that the gospel would thrive within the home and outside the home. The stronger the family relationships within the home; the more effective the ministry will be outside the home.

Since all the missionaries have English as their native tongue, they have requested an English team to minister and refresh their hearts and their children’s. Therefore, we intentionally and strategically having included a few children to further encourage and minister to the missionary children who rarely get interaction with English speaking children. Our missionary contact spoke to us in tears about how much this conference means to these families and especially how much their children long for other children from the States to be there to interact within their native tongue and cultural norms.

In the mornings we will lead a children’s program for all the children and throughout the week we will inspire the parents with tools they can use all through the year to strengthen their families and encourage family discipleship within the home.

Please consider joining us in these transformational efforts.  The total financial cost needed for the entire team around $21,500. The original leaders had to back out which has left us with an abbreviated time frame to raise this support and prepare our team.
