Summer 2010 Report:
This summer saw our new partnership with Soul Survivor come to life in the form of the GET OUT missions! This new partnership is about promoting and leading missions trips for teenagers in the summer, as well as local outreach during the Soul Survivor camps. After a 3 day orientation camp at Harpenden we sent out 6 teams totaling 120 teenagers which is really exciting. These teams went to Lithuania, Cornwall, Romania, China, Cambridge and Brighton. Here is a report from the leaders of the Brighton team. One way our team was able to bless and encourage the churches in Brighton was to prayer walk the city and write down impressions of what people were getting in prayer for different churches there. The team also spent an entire day painting a café run by volunteers for the community. While one group renovated, yet another group worked with a programme called Anti-Freeze that has a homeless ministry
there. This programme had two parts during our outreach: one part was a centre where homeless people can get food, use the internet and chat; the other part required team members to go on the streets and find homeless people to bless with sandwiches, chocolates, and hot drinks. While passing out the drinks and working in the centre the team could share about Jesus. Another aspect of the outreach included different kinds of evangelism. One approach was pub ministry where the band Evergreen performed and YWAMers talked with people about Jesus while the band played. There was also street evangelism including worship on the streets and taking surveys about what people thought about faith. Overall this time was a blessing for all of us working in Brighton. It is an amazing city with loads of potential and hospitable churches, and we are looking forward to seeing what God does there in the future.
Up for a new challenge? There’s a big wide world out there and a ton of opportunities for mission, outreach and evangelism! Don’t stay in...
