Greetings from Tyler, TX August 2019 Vol 5
We would like to share some exciting news! As most of you know, our first day of Discipleship Training School was June 30th. Meadows Adventures
Hello Friends and Family -
On June 30th, we arrived at Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Tyler to attend the Family Discipleship Training School (DTS). Along with my other classmates, we have been learning more about the character of God and how to reach out to others with His truth. With all that we are learning, we know that we are responsible to go and apply in practical ways what God is teaching us as a family. As our class has been praying about where we should go, He has impressed us with the needs in Brazil. We believe God wants to restore hearts and lives to Himself, and we want to bring this hope to the people there.
We’re sending you this letter to share with you how excited we are about our outreach opportunity we have coming up to Brazil. We will be traveling to Canapi, Brazil in the state of Alagoas for, from September 20th to October 20th. Then to Houston, Texas October 23, to November 8th.
We would love for you to partner with the Meadows Family! (more information coming soon)
We will head to the far eastern border of Brazil where we will travel to three different locations: Recife, Maceio, and Canapi. We will reach out to urban and rural communities with the goal of challenging people to accept and know God. We hope to join YWAM Maceio in bringing the message of Jesus to women and children with a high risk of being sex trafficked in urban slums as well as small, back country villages. In each location, we will go door to door and through the city/village sharing the Gospel as a way of preventing sex trafficking, healing the sick, and praying for restoration in families. We also want to bless rural communities by distributing Bibles to every home we visit for the purpose of seeing communities transformed through the Word of God.
After we arrive back from Brazil, we will spend two weeks in Houston, Texas. Here, we will join youth groups, churches, and college campuses to reach out to the lost wherever we go through friendship evangelism.
Like each of our classmates, we are responsible to pay for our own airfare and living expenses for our family of five.
Here’s the honest truth: We cannot travel to Napoli, Brazil without the financial and prayer support of a community. It would be unrealistic to attempt to fund this trip on our own, and it would be arrogant not to ask for prayer, since we will be serving in a place that we’ve never been before. That’s why we’re inviting you to partner with The Meadows Family.
Together, we can both be a small part of what God is doing to uplift the community in Napoli, Brazil. Would you consider playing a part in impacting the people of Houston and Brazil by helping me financially? Whatever the Lord leads you to give toward this will be gratefully received. We will need ALL of our funds before September 5th The airfare and outreach fees for our family total $17,500.
As you give, the people of Houston and Brazil will be challenged by God’s blessings as we work together to bring compassion and hope. Thank you for considering this investment into God’s kingdom with the Meadows Family.
