Natal, Brazil Medical: August 2 - 11, 2019
Trip Focus: Medical, Dental, Children's & Adult Ministry
Who are our “partners” in Natal? We will be serving alongside members of OHC’s first international campus in Natal, Brazil, led by Bryan & Jannet Carruth, who have been serving in Brazil for nearly two decades. Their vision is of a growing community of believers living out the call to be Jesus in every neighborhood in their city, impacting the country of Brazil and beyond. We will work together to testify to God’s love and grace to the neighborhoods around the church. We will work alongside local dental & medical providers to bring much-needed care to impoverished communities around the church, as a demonstration of God’s love and provision. We will also partner in creative outreach to the children in the communities. Our teams are blessed to partner together in Christ as we learn from one another, serve together & develop strong bonds of ministry friendship. As we partner in community outreach efforts to expand God’s Kingdom, the impact is visible in various shanty towns & communities with the leadership & church family of Refugio de Graca. During our medical/dental/children & adult ministry outreach efforts, we are led by our native Christian leaders from Refugio de Graca to areas of outreach that they are active in sharing God’s love and grace with, each day.
