Day 2 of the BRCC Mission Trip

Missionary of the Day: Brittney Sweet

This is Brittney’s first mission trip. Today she spent a
full day at the Alcance and got to bond with her friends while she worked on sorting and organizing the things we brought from USA. When asked about the highlight of her day she replied, “We started a devotional and had an amazing worship service to finish our day. I also enjoyed learning a little bit more about the culture when we went to visit the flip flop factory. The colors and multiple patterns were really cool.”   

Day 2 Activities

Our day began with a hearty breakfast of fruits, meat, cheese, bread, pastries and eggs. Following breakfast, one of our major tasks for the day was to organize and sort the materials we brought in trunks so they can be distributed throughout the School.  We also prepared for the upcoming English camp with direction from our friends from the Alcance by distributing the work and what will be taught as well as dividing up activities of the day.   Mike Mills and crew worked on construction projects while others cleaned up around the Alcance.   Amy, Pastor Jay, David Moraes and Roberto began preparing the backdrops and translations for Shout!  

Of course, no day would be complete without a little soccer (football) followed by dinner, devotionals and some worship time. We finished off our day with singing a rousing version of Happy Birthday to Sarah Wells who turned 16 enjoying some cake and a nice swim in the pool! (see photos..)

Please pray for the team as they encourage the Brazilian English campers with the love of Christ. Also pray as we prepare and adapt the translation of Shout so it will be understood and received by the Brazilian people.

Enjoy a few pictures of the day.

Blessings to you all!
