Regions Beyond Mission Outreach
During last year’s Missions Conference my Pastor challenged me to not only financially support other missionaries, but to also consider actively being a missionary. We are all called to go, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” and the Regions Beyond Missions Outreach of Faith Baptist Church is allowing the members of Faith to fulfill God’s call. I accepted the Lord's call and will be on the last team for this year heading out to Peru.
We have seen great success with the first four mission trips and are now coming up on our fifth and final trip for this year. You can view pictures and updates from the previous trips on our church's site for Regions Beyond and will see daily updates during my trip to Peru.
Mission trip to Australia in July 2008
On August 11, 2008 the fifth missions team will be sent out from Faith Baptist Church to Tacna, Peru in South America. The team and I will be returning back home on August 25, 2008. We will be working with our missionaries the Earnharts, the team will be heading up two 5 day Vacation Bible Schools (the first week in Tacna and the second week in Arequipa) along with strengthening and developing local mission works through leadership training, special ladies meetings, teaching and preaching, and distributing tracts, New Testaments, and other materials.
Tacna, Peru lies south of the equator, in the foothills of the Andes. It is bordered on the north by Ecuador and Colombia, on the east by Brazil, on the southeast by Bolivia, on the south by Chile, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The main spoken language is Spanish, although a significant number of Peruvians speak Quechua or other native languages. We will be in Peru during their winter, so temperatures will be in the higher 50’s to the lower 60’s.
Please pray for us as we venture out to Peru in service for the Lord ! :)
