Hello and Happy New Year!  I am coming down the home stretch in my senior year and am excited about the opportunity God has given me to go back to Brazil on a mission trip in March.  This will be my 3rd time making the trip to Curitiba. The first trip I was able to go with Braxton, while the 2nd trip included both Braxton and my Dad.  Each time God showed up in amazing ways and I had a front row seat to watch Him work in the lives of many Brazilians as they put their trust in Christ.  Most of our time there was spent in the public schools using dance and drama to spark interest just prior to the Gospel being shared. One of my most vivid memories was watching my Dad share about the love of Jesus with several hundred students in a large assembly.  While he was speaking he asked Braxton to join him, and shared how unbelievable it was that the creator of the universe would willingly sacrifice his only son on our behalf.   God also used the time in Brazil to encourage my Dad to make a major career change and shift to full-time ministry.  We truly serve an AWESOME God!

I am really looking forward to what God is going to do and am thankful that my Dad will be joining me on the journey.  We will once again be joining a group of 40+ students and adults from Bell Shoals Baptist Church traveling to Curitiba, Brazil during Spring Break.  Throughout my past trips to Brazil, God has proven His faithfulness to me while sharing my testimony.  When I struggled with doubt, He gave me strength and courage and spoke through me in only a way that He could.   

Please be in prayer as we prepare for our trip as we will surely face temptation and spiritual warfare.  I would also greatly appreciate you prayerfully considering financial support for my Dad and me to help us go on this mission trip.  The total cost of the trip is $3,600 and any contribution would be greatly appreciated.  Above all, I ask for your prayers for many in Brazil to come to know Christ as their Savior.   

Growing in Grace,
Haley Mann
