Casting Vision (Part 2)
Psalm 16:8 " I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me." (NLT)
Beside helping to run the community center while I am in Athens, Greece. I am going to help with Short Term Teams. As many of you know equipping and encouraging short term-ers is exciting for me! My first overseas trip was in 2002 to Peru and it changed my life! The prayer is that through this we as the Athens team can build up our team also with long term staff from people that catch the vision while on a short term trip.
Some of the fun things I foresee doing with short term teams: Festivals, Home Visits, Sports Camps, English Camps, Prayer Walks, Bible Packing & Distribution, Medical Clinics, Food Distribution, Spa Day (For Women). Men's & Women's Conferences, and maybe even a Dog Show. Half the people in Kypseli have a dog and if we could somehow pair that with a training class or grooming class kickoff at the community center that would even be better.
This may seem like a big task but we serve a big God! These projects help us to build relationships in the community. Once we have built upon these relationships they will be invited to go to the Church plant in Kypseli where they will get discipled. God will then direct his people to plant more churches to see more people reached. It is humbling to be able to be a part of what God is doing in Athens, Greece! Your prayers and financial support make you a part of it too! Blessings, Angela
