I am preparing to lead two teams to different parts of the world for various mission projects. In June, we will be sending 11 people to Karlovac, Croatia to teach ESL at the local Baptist church and to do what we call "friendship evangelism" in the local cafes. Cafes are a staple in Croatia and everyone is going to them to get coffee and talk. There will also be several chances to preach, which I am looking forward to do.
In July we will be sending 21 people to Teresina, Brazil to build a church. We will also, in two separate locations, lead Vacation Bible School and have a 9 session training program for pastors and church workers. We are very excited about these extensions to our normal church building activities. Of course, there will also be several preaching opportunities to prepare for.
Please keep these ministry opportunities in prayer and I will comment on them later in the year.
