S.T.O.R.M. Report (May 22, 2019) A trend on the rise in the OPC is married couples or pairs of friends setting out "two by two" in response to the need for volunteers on a foreign or domestic short-term mission or disaster response field. Mark 6:7 ...he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two. Luke 10:1 ...the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two.
Short-term missions does not just have to mean joining a large established team or trip. More and more friends and couples are finding opportunities to serve as a team of two!
In the last few years, husband and wife teams have:
A father and son team helped lead the English for Teens Bible Camping trip in Quebec; a father and daughter team served alongside two husband and wife teams rebuilding the kitchen at Keys OPC.
Two-man teams have traveled to Uganda to make missionary home upgrades and repairs; a two-man team from Wisconsin travels to Haiti on a regular basis to perform a variety of maintenance projects.
