This past Friday, we met with the team for the first time! There are four members (Joel, Kellie, Jackie, and Hernan) from Faith Bible Church and Bonnie from CrossLife Bible Church. Joel will be leading the team and he has been doing an amazing job in setting our hearts right for the mission trip and coordinating all the details, praise the Lord for him!
During the two week trip, we will be hosting a English Bible School for kids aged 5-12 years to share the message of the Gospel with them. Each weekday, we have prepared crafts, skits, songs and games to help Raffaele and Manuela Spitale share specific elements of the Gospel (God, man, Jesus Christ, death and resurrection, repentance and faith, forgiveness of sin, salvation). As the Spitales will be doing most of the teaching, our lesson plan and preparation has been focused on encouraging the children to memorize verses, sing songs about God and make Gospel themed crafts. We’re really excited to be helping out in leading song singing, skits, face painting and sharing the good news of Christ with these children!
Please pray that our hearts are prepared and emboldened to share the Gospel. Please pray for the English Bible School and the Spitale’s efforts in hosting the two weeks. Please pray that we would have countless Gospel opportunities with the kids and parents. And lastly, please pray that the Spitale’s local church would grow in up in every way into Christ.
