“For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” – Acts 13:47
GYC INTERmissions is excited and thankful that we have been called to serve in Tanzania this summer. Teaming up with ALIVE our mission trip this month will be serving in the city of Bunere, Tanzania. As a mission team we recognize that the most important component for success in Christ’s work is prayer. As we will be working with a new orphanage and meeting community members medical and spiritual needs through our medical missions team and evangelistic outreach, we ask for your commitment to uplift this mission in prayer.
The community in which we are currently serving is predominately non-Christian. Christ has called us to reach these people with love, kindness and a willing heart. As many of us are excited for the second coming of Christ we must realize the importance of reaching those who have never had the opportunity of hearing about Christ’s first coming and the joy of salvation. You may not physically see the fruit of your prayers for this mission in this lifetime but I assure you that by the grace of God we will one day embrace these brothers and sisters in heaven and rejoice that Christ was able to intercede in their lives through our prayers.
…the most important component for success in Christ’s work is prayer.
