Dear Mission Partner,
Greetings from Beyond the Walls! It’s that time of the year to start planning and praying about our trip next summer.
After much prayer and conversation with our IMB personnel in Brazil and our Brazilian friends Beyond the Walls has decided to partner with Brazilian Baptists in the city of Sorocaba in southeast Brazil. Sorocaba is a satellite of Sao Paulo and has a population of about 650,000. There is a well-established network of Baptist churches in the city. Several of these churches are meeting in rental spaces and need a permanent building. Pastor Elias from Igreja Batista Boas Novas will serve as our coordinator and is experienced in working with groups. He is excited about our partnership!
The dates for our trip will be July 3-16, 2020 for our extended trip and July 3-14, 2020 for the basic trip. The extended trip will include two nights in Foz Do Iguacu.
Please join us in praying for the preparation process. Here are a few prayer prompts:
- Pray about going with us next summer!
- Pray for God to prepare the hearts of Brazilians that will hear the Gospel.
- Pray for good participation among Brazilian churches.
- Pray for Pastor Elias as he helps coordinate the work.
- Pray for Beyond the Walls as we work to organize the trip.
- Pray for funds needed to finance construction.
Above is a registration form. Please fill this out and send it along with a copy of your passport to the address on the form. We look forward to seeing you next summer!
