2013 Short Term Missions Trips
July: Northern Asia
For years, LEFC has responded to world crises with practical help and with the Gospel message. In connection with local ministries, we seek to show the love of Jesus in a tangible way by ministering to the physical needs of those who have lost food, clothing, shelter, livelihood, and loved ones. But our efforts don't stop there. The Lord said, "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your father who is in heaven." The ultimate goal is to bring glory to the Father by leading more people into His eternal shelter.
For years, God has enabled LEFC to respond to disasters; Hurricane Mitch in Honduras, the Tsunami in Indonesia, Hurricanes in Mississippi, Louisiana, and in Galveston, TX. Some have also ministered after a flood in Eagle, Alaska and the earthquake in Haiti. Possibilities for additional crisis response abound.
Jesus said, " . . you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." The disciples were told to wait where they were until until that happened. When it did, they immediately began to speak of God's power to a multitude of nations. The Gospel spread like wildfire, from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria and far beyond. Similarly, we believe that in the power of the Holy Spirit, we are responsible to take the good news first to our neighbors, to others nearby, and then to the remotest parts of the earth. Therefore, we provide practical training seminars for those hoping to join one of our short term missions teams. This training includes hands-on outreaches to our neighbors and is required for anyone who wishes to receive support from LEFC. Contact Steve @ 717.626.5332 ext. 13 for more information.
