Over the summer months, the Immanuel Church family has been a vital partner with those individuals who shared the Good News of Jesus in San Diego, California as well as China and Haiti. We celebrate the individuals who stepped out of their comfort zones in obedience, to be experience different cultures & climates to be Jesus and how God uses each of His children to bring others into fellowship.
Tyler Brooks joined a team of young adults bound to China. These young adults sought out university students looking to share their own relationship with Christ. Here’s a glimpse: “It has been amazing to see how even halfway across the world He is working in and through people’s lives. While on the outside we may look and act different we are all part of His big picture. Students are very open and receptive about the things we share with them regarding our culture and core beliefs. And while we enjoy sharing with them, it has been a privilege to learn just as much if not more from the students here. Their desire to share about their culture and beliefs has made our friendships much stronger. The Father is truly moving through the lives of many students here.“
The IMPACT team (high school students and leaders) had the opportunity to partner with YouthWorks to serve children, elderly, and others in the San Diego communities. Our students served at a food bank by putting together & handing out food parcels as spending time with individuals at an adult daycare site to be Jesus to those they encountered.
The Immanuel team once again partnered with Bright Hope in Pignon, Haiti this summer. Spending time with individuals was the way this team ministered to the Haitians: hearing the stories of those blessed through the microloan program, playing games with the children attending VBS, serving a meal to the Haut Savanette students.
THANK YOU, Immanuel Church, for your faithful support to reach the world with the Good News of Christ! It is only possible through your generous giving to Accelerate, our one fund, and prayerful support that individuals, families, students and adults may go to help others know Christ and to grow to be like Him.
