Investing in NextGen Workers for the Harvest

27 Apr
In January I posted this photo of these three young people and mentioned that they are pursuing ways to move into missions. One of the more interesting aspects is that their parents have encouraged this since they were young.  Their mom even told me that she had prayed that God would use them as missionaries even if it meant they wouldn’t live nearby.  That’s a huge commitment by a Latina mom whose culture demands that kids are close by.  I was amazed at this level of commitment.  One of our struggles in mobilizing new workers from the States can often be parents who don’t support their children’s desire to serve outside the country.
When I posted their picture from Chile in January I promised more info to come, and here it is.  These three young people are raising support to serve at the EFCA Challenge conference this summer.  Challenge is a bi-annual event that draws around 5,000 students and youth workers for a week of worship, learning and being called to a deeper commitment to Jesus.  Paula, Esteban and Angela are going to serve alongside us in coaching, counseling and challenging students as living models of what it means to forsake home and family to serve Jesus wholeheartedly.  Following that week they will serve with our Crisis Response team in New Orleans, then Paula and Angela will serve with our Mexico City team working with young girls and women rescued from the sex trafficking trade.
Are you interested in investing in them?  Does seeing God raise up workers for the harvest from other countries excite you?  It certainly excites me, and I’m so privileged to be able to mentor people like these three as they give all to serve our Lord.

Brazilian workers for the harvest

21 Apr

From our team in Rio de Janeiro….

Today 1200 young Brazilians between the ages of 16 and 30 will meet for the second annual Vocare (Vocation) Missions Conference.     Please pray for the 30 leaders of the 26 missions organizations running the conference and their leader, Rodrigo from mission Base.    Here they are below!


  • Praise God for the Vision to work in partnership of so many diverse organizations working together with the common goal of mobilizing this young generation to Trans-cultural Missions!
  • Please pray for unity among the leaders in the midst of stress, conflict and the hundreds of details that can disrupt a national conference:  Disrupted Travel Itineraries, Technical problems (sound and lights), housing and hosting details (beds, roommates, toilets and showers), 
  • Please pray for Unity between the speakers and among the thousands of participants in the midst of a politically volatile country after the pro impeachment vote of the congress.  Brazil has more than 30 political parties and the students coming will represent all of them.   There has already been party bashing of some of the main speakers by some denominations.
  • Pray that the main thing will be the main thing!  Jesus is calling this generation to himself and sending them out in the power of the Holy Spirit to be witnesses of the Risen Christ and is calling this generation to go preach the good news and making disciples of the nations! 
  • The students will present 10 different visions for new cross cultural missions projects.  Please pray for a new  harvest of career missionaries.  Pray for new works of grace to be born as a result of this conference!
