At the beginning of August, the WED Memphis Team traveled to Recife, Brazil to serve alongside our friends, who are missionaries with South America Mission. We’ve traveled to Brazil many times as our friends have lived in Recife for the past nine years, but this was the first time we worked with Rio Doce Baptist Church.
I created this video to show at our church upon our return. It’s hard to capture a week in Brazil, but I hope this video provides just a small glimpse of why we have a heart for missions. We always come home with our cups overflowing having received more than we could ever give.
I love the lyrics of the first song, “Steal My Show,” by tobyMac:
“No matter who we are, no matter what we do, everyday we can choose to say, ‘If You want to steal my show, I’ll sit back and watch You go. If You’ve got something to say, go on and take it away. Need You to steal my show. Can’t wait to watch You go, so take it away – my life, my friends, my heart. It’s all Yours, God. Take it away – my dreams, my fears, my family, my career. Take it away. Take it away. Its all Yours God, so take it away. Take it away. It’s You I want to live for.'”
It’s not about us. It’s about Him.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
“We love, because He first loved us.”
I John 4:19
