World Cup and World Team heading to Manaus

World Cup and World Team heading to Manaus

Are you watching the World Cup?
 
World Team has ministry in 10 out of 32 countries represented in the games. One of our newest fields is playing host to the US-Portugal match this Sunday!
 
Nearly 50,000 tribal people have resettled on the fringes of Manaus, a major city in the Amazon region, looking for work and a better life. As you watch the World Cup, imagine them. Some may live within earshot of the whistles and cheering crowds. Their tribal languages and traditions are useless here. They are open to new possibilities but often bewildered by urban complexities. Human traffickers and drug lords offer twisted opportunities. For lack of options, too many succumb.
 
A new team is forming to reach them through a holistic church-planting effort. Three missionaries are preparing to go – but they need more teammates.
 
Enjoy the games - and remember to pray for our team headed for Manaus in the coming year. Want to join us?

Jesus is doing big things among the Baka
 “Big things, big things, Jesus do um for me.
He butter my bread and He sugar my tea.
Big things, big things, Jesus do um for me!”

This joyful song is a favorite at a small but growing church in the jungles of Cameroon. Truly, Jesus is doing big things among the Baka! Last Sunday, the church anointed Nestor as their first elder. And this Sunday – on Easter morning – in a small waterhole under a canopy of trees, Nestor will help baptize several members of the village.

Celebrating Spring's Colors and Redemptive Themes

The roots of Holi tell of the mythological demon King who demanded that he be worshiped as god and his pious son who refused to do him that honor. Holi, a Hindu festival that is primarily celebrated in India and Nepal, as well as areas where there is a strong Hindu influence is typically celebrated after the first full moon in March, this year the celebration will be held on March 17. 

If you live near a major metropolitan area, it’s likely that you know someone who celebrates Holi. As a follower of Christ, what are some ways you can reach out and build connections?
