My last prayer request I had for the trip was that God could really reaffirm my call to missions as well as show me the possibilities that would be available to me through playing my saxophone. I got the privilege of playing with the worship team on 2 Sundays, during the 7 times we meet for the conference, before a school play (for background music), at one of the churches for a “special” music, and just jamming with the guys before and after the services. My lip was so tired! But the joy of getting to play with all of them was worth it. During the trip I gave my testimony of struggling with going the Barclay College in Haviland, Kansas to study missions, or going to study music elsewhere. I have chosen to go to Barclay next year knowing that God has called me there and there is no place better to be than where God wants you. After giving my testimony Frank had all of the pastors and those I had played with to pray for me. This was a really powerful moment for me on the trip. It reaffirmed my choice to go to Barclay, to go on the trip, and my call to missions. All of the pastors in Brazil are great leaders and men of God. It was encouraging to get to spend time with and get to know many of the pastors during the conference as well as get to see some of them pastor their church. Tele served as our host and interpreter (for most of the time) during the trip. He is a strong leader and a man of God. It was a great joy to get to know him and his family. Thank you for all of your prayers and support. The trip couldn’t have gone better. I was greatly encouraged by the trip and cannot wait to go back, the Lord willing.
