2019 Natal Student STM: June 19 - 28
Trip Focus: Student School Ministry with kids and youth of the local community.
The Natal, Brazil Student team will fly from San Antonio, TX through Rio de Janeiro or Sau Paulo, to Natal, Brazil.
In Natal, we will be serving alongside the brothers and sister of our international campus, OHC Natal. We will support the church's ongoing ministry initiatives by serving in shantytowns and favelas around the Natal campus. Under the direction of OHC Natal leaders, team members will be involved in student and sport ministry with the children and youth of the community. Regardless of your experience or language knowledge, God can use your spiritual gifts to serve people in need and build His kingdom in Brazil. You will also make amazing new friendships with our Brazilian counterparts.
