Super Summer campers learn about mission opportunities

Youth attending Super Summer 2014 were challenged to participate in international outreach in the summer of 2015.

KNCSB teams work with IGoGlobal in cooperation with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board.

After serving in Amsterdam for four years, the KNCSB team will return to Tokyo, Japan, May 30-June 10, 2015. KNCSB Super Summer international outreach began in Tokyo in 2008, and teams served there for three years.

Less than 1 percent of the population in Japan has even heard the name of Jesus, Terry McIlvain said. He is the KNCSB director of youth ministry and Webster Conference Center administrator.

Japan is very open to the gospel, but it is “very dark spiritually,” McIlvain continued.

In Japan, the KNCSB team will prayer walk and engage in relational evangelism.

Aug. 22 was the deadline for applying with IGoGlobal for the 2015 project in Tokyo. Those who are accepted must raise $3,600 in order to participate. This covers all expenses except souvenirs.

Kansas-Nebraska Southern Baptists are urged to pray for the 2015 project in Tokyo and support students who will be raising money to participate.
