Dear NCJ Conference Communications –
The North Central Jurisdiction Mission Discovery team will be going to Brazil this coming July. I know that several young adults from each conference will be interested! Could you please put this announcement initially from team leader Cara Weiler in one of you upcoming emails and maybe on your website? I think that several young adults from the NIC might be interested! *She has included links to pages that can be included in the announcements* Please help us by informing your young adults of this great opportunity!
Revs. Cara and Matt Weiler will be leading a North Central Jurisdiction Volunteers In Mission – Mission Discovery team to Nova Almeida, Brazil, July 13-22, 2013. Applications are now being accepted to join this team – focused on youth and young adults (16+) to engage in mission and leadership development. Participants will work alongside youth and young adults from Brazil to work on construction and building projects of the local Methodist campgrounds while also engaging the children of the community through the local Shade and Fresh Water Project. (http://www.ourchurchvideos.com/23060/vaumc/view_video.php?viewkey=97759aa27a0c99bff671 *this link takes you to a video that speaks to the shade and fresh water projects of brazil). Additionally, all participants will be walked through the Volunteer In Mission Leadership Guide so that upon return, not only will participants be prepared to share their own story and experience, but also to lead others to encounter their own mission experience and spiritual transformation. Please contact Cara Weiler at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an application or visit Mission Discovery’s website (http://www.gbgm-umc.org/northcentralvim/NCVIM/Mission_Discovery.html) and check us out on Facebook (include link -http://www.facebook.com/missiondiscoveryumc?fref=ts).
