Continuing the Great Commission

Dear Church Family, We are continuing the great commission and our commitment to our Lord and Saviour. Please be praying for our international mission teams as well as our local missionaries as we reach the world for Christ. This is the first summer we have done two international trips back-to-back. Our mission team to Romania has just returned over the weekend and have wonderful reports about how God moved. This was our third year going to Romania continuing our partnership Pastor Horia Pope of the Betel Baptist Church and our IMB Missionaries Keven and Lisa Kail. Cernavoda, Romania is a ripe mission field. At a Gypsy place called “The Camp” our team and the missionaries were the only Gospel presence. This weekend we also sent a team to Mexico. This is our first mission trip to Veracruz and we will be working with the people of Xalapa, the capital city of the state of Veracruz. This trip is geared for younger or first time mission participants. We will be working with IMB Missionaries Loren and Karen Dickey. Our The mission team will be on the front end of church planting in the communities which surround Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. Prayer will be our focus throughout the week as we focus on reaching whole families for Christ. Activities will include prayer-walking, children's ministries like VBS and sports camps and other mission activities. Ocoee Outreach will be hosting several block parties and day camps for kids throughout the summer. If your church needs some ministry help this summer, please contact us. We seek to be a resource to our churches in anyway we can. Please check our online calendar for scheduled events and block parties at crossnet.com. For many of you Vacation Bible School is on the horizon. If you have set your VBS dates, please contact our office so that we may promote it on our website calendar. If you have completed your VBS already, please contact our office so we can celebrate your VBS report in our publications. This year, please consider using your VBS missions offering toward our DC partnership and reaching the lost. What better way to help teach kids about missions. Finally, we be returning to Washington, DC during fall break, October 3rd-13th, for a mission trip.
