Joyful Fellowship with Antioch Mission

Faith2Share’s new International Director reports back on his recent time with our member agency Missão Antioquia (Antioch Mission).

“Brazilians are very warm and friendly and it was a joy to join over 20 missionaries from Brazil as they met together for a retreat in Malaga, Spain. Even with my basic Portuguese, it was great to listen to the inspiring talks about membercare; belonging to Antioch Mission; and the blessings and challenges of their global ministry. After spending a while immersed in this beautiful language, I managed to follow what they were saying – but, sadly, couldn’t actually put many sentences together myself.

Antioch Mission had asked Faith2Share to contribute a western European perspective on global missions and I made a presentation on the challenges and opportunities of post-secular society, offering the Netherlands as an example. I also argued for the need to equip Christians living as minorities in western Europe to be witnesses for Jesus Christ in their multi-cultural and multi-religious contexts and showed how whole-life discipleship training could play a key role.

Thank you, Silas and Marcia Tostes, and everyone at Missão Antioquia in Malaga, for inviting me and bearing with me, sharing your lives – and your faith - with me.

Muito obrigado!”
