Missions Ministry - Amazon Mission Trip April 2016

Join us on our next Mission Trip

“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”    Acts 1:8

"Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  Matthew 28:18-20

So how does that happen? What is our role in sharing Christ’s vision to make disciples of all nations?

Travel with Carlisle Baptist Church and Amazon Vision Ministries as we minister to the needs of the unreached people of the Western Amazon River Basin. This is your chance to make a difference, to change the world, and to be a witness for Christ to the ends of the earth.

We have already sent two teams to the Western Amazon River Basin - and we are so excited about the doors that the Lord is opening for us and the opportunities that we have to present the Gospel to the unreached people living in the isolated and remote villages and communities of the Western Amazon Basin of Brazil.

Our team will leave from Tallahassee, Florida on April 8 2016 and fly to Manaus, Brazil - in the heart of the Amazon. There we will board the Amazon Nemo - our "luxury" liveaboard for the next 10 days - and travel further along the Amazon River to minister to several villages and communities. There are many opportunities to serve for those willing to go: 

-          Worship services – our Pastors preach and each team member gives a personal testimony during one of several services we will hold during the 8 days we are on the river.

-          Medical clinic – a triage team and medical teams – doctor/nurse plus a translator on each medical team.The Amazon Nemo has medical supplies ready to go – we saw over 400 patients in 6 days on our last trip.

-          VBS - teaching the children both during school time and after school.

-          Visitation - making door-to-door visits and witnessing.

-          Supplies - passing out eye glasses, clothing, shoes.

-          Sports/recreation – organized games with the children.

We also challenge every village to a soccer match – every village in Brazil has a soccer field of course!

We will leave on Friday, 8 April 2016 and return on Monday, 18 April 2016.

To secure a place on our team:

Contact:  Wendy Hodgson - Trip Coordinator - accountant@carlislebaptist.com - (850) 866-6418

Because we travel into the Amazon river basin by boat, we have limited space available - 14 people only.

We are asking for a non-refundable $100 deposit by November 15th to secure a place on the team.

The paperwork for a passport and visa takes time so we need to start the process right away.

We have already sent two teams to Brazil – so we can give you all the information you need to complete these applications.

Once you have made the decision to join our team, please contact our trip coordinator Wendy Hodgson immediately so we can start the application process and get you all the information you will need about travel arrangements, costs, payment schedule, etc.

We look forward to welcoming you as part of our Amazon Mission Team!
