Freeman Baptist Church has the privilege of sending a group of people to Brazil this summer for a 10 day missions trip on the Amazon river to minister with Rick and Kim Parker.
Rick and Kim Parker are missionaries to Brazil with Word of Life since 1990. In 2003, Rick and Kim moved to Itacoatiara, on the Amazon River, and began a ministry called SEARA (pronounced say-odd-uh). SEARA stands for Services of Evangelism and Assistance to the River people of the Amazon.
Their goal is to reach the many small river villages of the Amazon basin with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Once SEARA has been able to share the gospel in a river village and see people come to faith in Jesus Christ they disciple those individuals and eventually help to plant a church. SEARA also has a floating seminary which enables the training of these believers to become pastors and missionaries to continue to reach other Amazon villages.
The Parkers direct the ministry as well as provide logistical support to the missionaries living in the river villages.
Our team will help to build a multi-purpose building in one of the river villages which will be used for holding church services, camps, bible studies and more. We will also have the opportunity to minister to kids and adults through 5 day clubs, bible studies and small groups in those communities, sharing the good news of the gospel and strengthening the believers.
We want to ask you to be praying for us and pray about supporting us financially. We are hoping to raise roughly $2000 per team member. This will cover the plane tickets and living expenses while in country so we are not a financial burden to the missionaries.
