Why: To Support Mission Trip to Honduras Deaf Camp.
On July 17th the entire Shultz family and Taunya Walther are headed down to La Ceiba, Honduras to share God’s love with the deaf. They will be serving at the 2019 Signs of Love Camp; an organization whose main focus is the deaf who live in rural areas and have no access to language. Signs of Love locates them and teaches them their country's sign language.
Signs of Love lives the Gospel. They cultivate Deaf leaders, host Deaf camps, plant Deaf churches (gatherings of Love), promote Deaf awareness, and launch microenterprises for the Deaf. Their goal is to bring healing to the wounded and brokenhearted by loving fearlessly & outrageously.
The Shultz family needs to raise a total of $8,500 for this trip. If you would like to donate, please make a check out to “Signs Of Love” and write Travis Shultz in the memo. You can also donate online at crowdrise.com/deafcamp2019.
Please consider donating to the trip and to the work that will be accomplished there. If you have any questions, please contact Travis Shultz.

Personal Prophetic Ministry Appointments
When: The first Sunday of each month (Next opportunity - July 7th)
Prophecy is hearing the heart of God for a person and speaking it out. The goal of prophecy is to strengthen, encourage, and comfort believers (1 Corinthians 14:3) and to help unbelievers encounter God (1 Corinthians 14:24-25). A personal prophetic appointment is a time where two or three trained prophetic team members will hear from God for you and share what they sense God is saying. We can all hear from God, but none of us do so in a vacuum. We are meant to hear in community!
Sign up for an appointment at the welcome table following the Sunday service. Please contact Melaniemelanson@antiochbeverly.org for more information.
*Please Note: Week 1 is already full!
