June 28-July 1 – Stay-at-Home Missions Trip in DC – Montgomery County, MD
Global Gates is hosting this “trip” called “Engaging the Nations”. Just as people take off of work to go to other lands for short term trips, we are asking them to take off a few days to reach the unreached peoples who have immigrated to the greater DC metro area. This trip is a “hands-on” follow-up to the Perspectives Course in which many of the concepts discussed in Perspectives are emphasized through engagement of the unreached peoples in our area.
For three and a half days the participants will:
· Meet for prayer, worship and training.
· Visit a Mosque, Hindu Temple etc.
· Go out in small groups to engage unreached people groups
· Invite those interested in the Gospel to start a Bible study.
Email Tammy Stoy for more information and to register. Cost is $75 plus whatever you spend on food.
