Taking Christmas To The Border 2018
Purpose: To follow the instructions of Jesus to the 72 disciples as stated in Luke 10:1-17. The Harvest is great, but the workers are few. 1) Pray to the Lord for the mission trip. 2) Go, get out of your comfort zone. 3) Depend on God to provide for the needs of the mission trip. 4) Don’t get distracted by the details that you forget the objective of the mission trip. 5) Speak Gods peace over the place you are evangelizing. 6) Be hospitable. 7) Heal the sick and give them the gospel message.
Mission trip for youth and adults.
Objective: To build relationships and present the Gospel to the people along the border.
Location: Primera Iglesia of Del Rio and Iglesia Bautista Nueva Vida Del Rio
Dates: Leave on Friday Dec. 21st at approx. 2pm. Return on Sunday Dec. 23rd at approx. 2pm.
