Sunday Highlight: August 1
Today in our prayer time we’re going to the Amazon region of Brazil. Our missionary who serves there is named Haylee Belcher. She’s a journeyman, which is a two year program for people under the age of 30 who have completed college. It’s offered by our International Mission Board. Haylee made several short mission trips to the Amazon while she was a student at Oklahoma Baptist University. That became a call of God to go serve there, so she did.
Today, ask Haylee the high point of living in the Amazon rain forest and she will not tell you about rivers, wildlife, jungles or other sights. She’ll tell you about the Bible study she and another missionary led and how a girl named Ana came. After Ana studied the Bible and asked many questions, she committed her life to Christ. That, and Ana’s discipling which followed, were the life-changing memories Haylee will take back to America.
Because our church gives through the Cooperative Program, our church supports many young people like Haylee serving as journeymen around the world. Let’s ask God to lead both Haylee and Ana as they see what God has in store for them next.
Thank you for learning more about the ways your church’s gifts through the Cooperative Program are the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Connect the offering plate to the mission field with “52 Sundays” resources.
