We were so encouraged to hear an outpouring of gratitude and encouragement from the church leaders in the Brazilian churches. They shared about the encouragement and impact that the SURGE visit brought to the disciples in their churches. They also shared great news about a sister named Silvia Cavalcante from Brazil who joined us on our last SURGE trip to Europe. One of the Brazilian leaders told us how Silvia's participation in the SURGE Euro Trip transformed her is such a great way, and Silvia returned from Europe with an inspiration and a desire to have a lasting impact. Today Silvia is now dreaming of joining a future mission team to plant a new church in Brazil!
There was a lot of interest and enthusiasm in SURGE visiting other cities in Latin America, and SURGE Singles Missions will be visiting Latin America in October of 2016.
SURGE will join disciples from all over Latin America at the "Conferencia De Las Americas" in Lima Peru from October 20-23. Then we will go in groups of seven to 10 singles to three different churches: Santa Cruz, Bolivia, Medellin, Colombia, and Asuncion, Paraguay. Each group will stay with disciples, have great times of fellowship, invite people for a special Sunday invitation service, and have great fun with singles from the local church!
It's great to see how throughout every generation God is using and will continue to use single disciples to inspire, encourage and impact our fellow disciples all over the world.
