Called to Serve Him in Africa — the Freitas Family [Luke 14:16-21]

January 6, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/06/2013

Preacher: Tony Freitas, missionary

Key Text: Luke 14:16-21

Description: Ten years, one ambitious vision: 100 million people touched with the gospel around the world. Those are the marching orders of Reach Global, the international arm of the Evangelical Free Church of America, which exists to multiply healthy churches among all people for the glory of God.

Today we are joined by Scandia Bible Church supported Reach Global Missionary, Tony Freitas — a man, together with his family, called by God to faithfully serve the people of Tanzania, Africa.  They are living, as Tony says,

“…a life of serving the poorest of the poor. It’s a tough life but there is nothing that I could possibly imagine to be more fulfilling than serving the Lord! I am not a formal pastor and have not been to seminary, yet God has clearly called our family to serve Him in Africa to use the gifts that he has given each of us. As 1 Peter 4:10 states, ‘Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of Gods grace in its various forms.’”
