Colossians 2:6 Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him.
I John 3:23-24a And this is His (God’s) commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God and God in him.
The goal of the Christian parent and the goal of the church: Pray, love, and encourage our youth trusting that the Lord would draw them unto Himself to believe in Him and then to grow in believing AND that the Lord would work in their hearts to love others and walk in Christ.
The people of the Bahamas NEED the love of Christ!
Ministering in the Bahamas is manageable because it's an English-speaking population that's close to US.
The work is oriented toward involving high schoolers:
Ways that we grow in Christ: means of grace, fellowship, serving, loving, giving--or you can simply say: BEING ON MISSION TOGETHER!
This missions trip will be a means-of-grace-saturated exercise! Spiritual preparation and growth including eight meetings before leaving, devotions and prayer as a group, loving our group/missionaries/people of Yellow Elder, talking through experiences, worship together, personal devotions each morning...
This is an opportunity for you and your youth to take one week, wholly devoted to being on mission, a whole week with just two goals in mind : believing and loving.
You won’t regret it! Seeing our youth grow in the Lord and in loving is more than worth the time spent in the Bahamas, the fundraising, meetings, and everything else!
