Why am I going to Brazil. This was a hard letter for me to write. Is it exciting to be going to another country? Yes. Is it a once in a life time opportunity? Yes. There will be occasions to give the Gospel, to give a testimony, to help build a church and relationships, and serve with the missionaries. But I could not honestly write about one or all of these as the reason that I am going. When the mission trip was first announced, I immediately felt that I should be going. I felt compelled to act upon the opportunity and I could not let this trip pass by. I prayed about the decision and let Pastor know that I would like to go with the team. Now the question is ‘why am I going?’. If God can take the ordinary and do something exceptional than that would be me. I am going to Brazil on the faith that God wants me to go and after or during this time I will know ‘why I am going to Brazil’.
