Thirty people from Graystone just got back from a 10-day trip to Curitiba, Brazil and what a trip it was! You can read detailed accounts from each day from our team blog here. My 3 biggest highlights are as follows:
Helping further the work of the missionaries. Many times mission teams can be a hindrance to missionaries but thankfully our team "moved the boat upstream" for Jim and the rest of his ministry.
Encouraging the local church to care for orphans. We were able to speak at two churches and share how God's called everyone to care for the orphan. Real change comes when the local church is BEING the church since they are there 365 days a year; not when a foreign mission team comes for a week.
- Seeing team members' hearts change. God is good and He's doing great things everywhere. Being able to see how He's moving in Brazil was an experience no one will forget and hopefully all will take a piece of that and use it for good back home.
