Short-Term Mission Team Updates

A team of three traveled to Moldova to do elder care, visiting those who have often been left behind and forgotten by their families. During the week they visited 45 households and delivered a bag of groceries to each one. They brought love, encouragement, and prayers to the men and women they spent time with.

A team of 6 individuals served alongside our partners in Brussels for the annual “Serve the Church” initiative. The team worked on a variety of projects: teaching English classes, helping a church run a VBS in the park, doing minor construction, soccer ministry with young men in the community, and passing out lots of flyers. The church planters in Brussels were so blessed by the efforts and encouraged by the time together.

A team of three women worked alongside our church planting partners in Ho Chi Minh City. They trained 28 leaders on Monday tackling the topic “How to Create a Bible Lesson”. They shared planning, storytelling methods, activities and lesson review “how-to’s”. The team worked alongside the local churches for 5 days of VBS at four different locations in and around Ho Chi Minh City. They shared “The Greatest Story ever told” with over 135 kids while working together with their leaders. Please pray for the pastors, their families and the Church in Vietnam.
