Summer in Brazil - Basketball Clinics

By Rogerio: Summer 2012! Summer 2012! Summer 2012!
Summer in Brasil is here! People are busy trying to find a great get away vacation resort trip! But not for us! For us is a great time and lots of opportunities for ministry, so we get busy working.
Matthews 28:18 "Then Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

In December, we have been pretty busy getting ready for our big mission trip in January and February. We are going deep in land in the Northeast to share the gospel. It is going to be dry and hot. Our II Atletas em Ação Mission trip will be going to the following cities:
1. Carpina PE-January 09th -14th.
2. Lagoa do Carro PE-January 16th-25th.
3. Barreiras PI -January 27th – February 2nd.
4. Monte Alegre PI- February 04th – 12th.
Our team is still working on the last details for the trip such as getting their written testimony ready, raising some more support by selling cookies, selling trip t-shirts, offering evangelistic brochures for donations and sending out support letters to friends. A big effort for a big cause!
We have 12 people signed up for the trip, and our adventure begins January 09th. We are all excited for this; we want to see how God is going to work through us.
Our strategy will be to use the sports as a platform to reach people. So we are planning to do basketball clinics, fun games and some fun skits.
Please pray for our team as we get ready to start our adventure in the Northeast.
Our team, Ro, Matheus, Priscila, Simone, Timothy, Jessica, Rodrigo, Liliane, Luizinho, Thiago, Luis Valter and Jucilene. Mention to the Lord for our travels, our ministry time with the kids as well as the church leaders, energy for our team to complete the tour in good shape and good health.


Lembre-se de orar por nós durante a viagem.
Remember to pray for us during our mission trip.
Precisamos Muito De Sua Intercessão.
We need your prayers.

-Pray for safety during our trip, we are going to use the VAN for our transportation.
-We need about U$300 dollars more, a few more vests and basketballs to leave behind
-Pray for the people that will be exposed to the message of salvation.
-Pray for the pastors and church leaders we will contact to share , cast vision and train, we just want to serve the local church by giving them tools to work.
-Pray for our time as a team to just learn how to get along and love each other.
Our first mission will be to help to kick off one of the communities churches here near us in the town of Lagoa do Carro. We are going to help plant a church there, so we are really excited about this.

Pernanbuco, our new home state will be a city host for the World Cup in 2014. Our effort is to cast sport ministry vision to as many church leaders as we can, help them and train them. We want to start spiritual movements every where through the platform of sports Ministries. So our mission trip is with a purpose and we want to be wise with our contacts.
We are hoping to update our missions trip tour daily, so please take a look at our blog once in while in this link.
Thank you for your prayers and your support,

Soares Family
