We are now sending the second wave of exploration trips to potential new mission fields to discern where EFM and partner regions/yearly meetings will make decisions for launching new fields, based on EFM’s CAN GO Criteria. The next National EFM Luke 10 Think Tank convenes in November 2023 with plans to identify which fields EFM will make commitments towards launching. Ten teams have now explored ten different country/people group destinations on a first Luke 10 Exploration Trip. See more information here.
This next trip to Northeast Brazil is leaving today and taking place between October 6-17! The team will include eight people: Patrick Neifert (RMYM), Cassi Coleman (RMYM), Phil and Karen Burgi (RMYM), Autumn Keith (RMYM), Jessie Quinby (RMYM), Dan Cammack (EFM Field Director), and Frank Penna (World Renewal).
The team will have the opportunity to connect with the local people and prayerfully discern God’s leading. The northeast area of Brazil called the “Sertão” is a region of poverty where there is minimal knowledge of the good news of Jesus. As the team discerns whether this might be an area for a new EFM mission field, we are asking you to pray with us.
The team will arrive in Recife and travel to the Mirandiba, Sousa, and Carpina while they are in Brazil to meet with local leaders and visit communities in those areas.
|The following are ways that you can be praying for this team while they are in Brazil.
The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to cast out more workers into his fields.
