Partnering with #AmericanBaptistMinistries and Philip and Corenne Smith, #GVBC is sending its first team to Brazil and they leave tomorrow morning! If you would like to come pray for them, please be at GVBC by 11:00 AM to see them off with prayer.
#LindsayYoshiba, one of our youth leaders and worship team members is part of the Brazil team. Please cover her and the team with prayer!
"As a soon-to-be PT (physical therapy) student, I have been thinking about how I will be able to serve God with the education He has blessed me with. So, when the Smiths shared about their ministry a few months ago at GVBC, I believed God planted the thought of going. When I also heard the Smiths share that they would like people who had certain skills such as OTs and PTs, I wanted to apply to go, thinking maybe this (or missions in general) is a way God may be calling me to serve Him with the experience I will gain as a future PT.
Please pray that I will continue to grow in humility in order to allow God to use me to serve Him and reflect His love to those we will encounter in whatever capacity He calls me to. Please pray for our team's flexibility as we prepare and serve the Smiths and the Hope Unlimited ministries, and please also pray that God's love will be reflected in our words and actions."
