Healing Mission to the People of Carrilho, Brazil

This summer I will be going with my college, Oral Roberts University, to the community of Carrilho, Brazil as part of a Healing Mission Team.

Healing missions are special to ORU and have a long history at our university. Students from a number of different disciplines, including business, nursing, and education, are trained to bring practical, sustainable healing and transformation to the selected community. We will fill practical needs while always answering the spiritual need and displaying to people of the community the love of Jesus and His heart to bring His people healing.

Bag of raw cashews

As a business student, I will be working with a cashew cooperative in the community, helping them to enter the U.S. market and recreate their business processes. We hope to ultimately help the community at large experience economic growth.

My team has been meeting regularly and taking a special class to prepare for the upcoming trip, which will take place May 13th through 29th, 2018.

Raising Support

Each of us is responsible for the money for his/her expenses. The trip has a total cost of $2,599. I am currently about 25% toward my goal, and still need approximately $2000 in order to make this trip. Would you please consider donating toward this effort?

I appreciate any donation you’re able to make.  I suggest a gift of $25, $50, or $100, but please give only whatever you feel led/feel is best.

Donate by credit card

Credit card donations can be made online at ORUmissions.com/donate.  After typing in your donation amount, on the next page select “On Behalf of Missionary”.

Carrilho, Brazil

We are going to Carrilho, Brazil, a village of about 800 people in the northeastern Brazilian state of Sergipe. This trip is the fourth trip that ORU Healing Team students will make to Carrilho which have been designed specifically around transformation for the community. We want to help the village escape poverty. Because poverty affects more about a community than just its economy, others groups from our Brazil team will be working with the village in areas such as medicine, education, and discipleship. Our goal is to make a community-centered, sustainable impact to enable these individuals to make a transformative escape from the cycle of poverty.

Building upon previous years’ projects, business students will be working with a cashew cooperative to increase sales and streamline business processes, nursing students will continue implementation of the community health plan, education students will be conducting teacher training in partnership with the local Secretary of Education, journalism and media students will be capturing individuals’ stories and the team will address spiritual needs through evangelism and discipleship.
