Pray for our Tanzania Team- July 18- August 1

Our youth mission team left for Tanzania this morning and will be serving with Vernon and Mary S. for the next two weeks! We would like to invite you to pray through Scripture for this team of 38 students and 14 leaders so please check out the verse and prayer points below.

“May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Romans 15:5-6

Ministry in Tanzania: The team will be traveling to three schools a day to share the gospel with students, helping build a miniature golf course that will help further long-term ministry in Tanzania, and will be leading a VBS and a sports night for children in local churches. Pray that the team will be unified and focused on Christ as they serve in a variety of ways!

The Team: Pray that the Lord would work in many ways in and through this team and that they would return to Lynchburg with a deeper understanding of God’s heart for the nations and a passion to serve Christ and make Him known wherever He leads them in the future. Pray that the team would abide deeply in Christ, that they would have opportunities to share the gospel with those that they meet, and that they would strive to serve and love one another.
