On Saturday, August 6, the MIA South2North Team leaves on their 80 day journey from South Africa to Kenya. The team consists of the FTLT Missionary Training School students. As part of our training we have to plan, organize and raise the funds for a three-month outreach to any destination we feel led to. It has been our privilege to observe first-hand how MIA 2012 has been transformed from a dream to a reality and in anticipation of things to come, we feel that God is calling us to get involved with this process.
A MIA 2012 Prologue. To go on a prayer pilgrimage from South Africa to Kenya, South to North, preparing the way for the teams that will move into action in 2012.
We will visit possible MIA entities of change in each country we pass through, focusing on various areas and goals:
First and foremost, our focus will be to create a foundation of prayer for MIA 2012. We realise that an initiative this big is bound to fail without prayer, therefore we want to focus on the most important aspect first. By moving from country to country, praying fervently for MIA 2012, we feel that we will be making a powerful statement of what we believe is to come. We plan to intercede as a team at key locations in the various countries, these key locations can differ from the most insignificant places (such as slums) to the most significant places (such as government buildings)
- To generate excitement for MIA 2012 by sending back stories, photos and videos of the entities we visit. People back home will be able to follow us on our journey through blogs, the MIA website and Twitter.
- To identify, connect and build relationship with possible MIA 2012 entities (outreach destinations) and to do anything that may be required of us during our stay with them. Our heart is to glorify and praise God wherever we are. We want to proclaim His love, grace and epic story in various ways. This can mean anything from ministering through stories, song and prayer to physically helping out with any other tasks that may arise such as building or painting and more. The duration of our stay at each entity should be long enough to properly connect with the people. We want to be ambassadors of God everywhere we go, being the salt and light to the world.
- Tanzania Zanzibar
We are really excited about what God has planned, and we are thankful for this great privilege. We will try our best to keep you updated, so please keep an eye on the website and the Twitter feed! We ask that you keep us in your prayers as we take on the long journey North!
