Four Typhoons to hit Philippines

Wednesday, 23 July 2014 14:56

Ted Ruiz, Encompass staff in the Philippines, writes that during their ten days in the States two typhoons have struck the Philippines.

“The 1st, Rasmussen/Glenda (Category 4), struck on July 16 and caused extensive damage in Metro Manila and especially in Bicol. The damage was mostly due to strong winds. There was little flooding. Almost 100 have died so far. To our knowledge, none of our believers have been hurt. The 2nd, Matmo/Henry, just a few days later, caused some flooding in Bicol and in the north, and then veered away. Two more typhoons are forecast to hit the Philippines within the next few days."


Encompass is having a great time here at Momentum 2014, and everyone is having a lot of fun with our international photo booth! Students and leaders get to try on cross-cultural clothing and have their picture taken. The pictures are then posted on Twitter and Instagram @encompassworld.

Here is a picture of a student group from Korea that is in the US traveling with Grace College!

In the spirit of innovation that will characterize this year's FellowSHIFT Conference (the National Conference of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches), we are excited to present a variety of ways for attendees to ENGAGE with Encompass. This year, we won't be sponsoring a meal, but we will be sponsoring a whole experience! We have rented an entire hall in the conference hotel with a variety of different ways to Engage with Christ's work among the nations!

Seven Engagement Stations will be set up for participants of all ages to worship, pray, learn and even play with what God is doing around the world. Our sponsored workshops on Increasing Cultural Intelligence: Understanding and Reaching Ethnic Minorities will be led by our own Missiologist-In-Residence. We will host a Photo Booth on Friday and fun with Legos all weekend...

Encounter Atlanta 2014

Thursday, 03 July 2014 13:38

Encounter Atlanta 2014 has just ended, and the team from Akron, OH and Maryland depart today. The last five days have been a whirlwind of new experiences, cross-cultural introduction, and in-depth learning about ministry opportunities here in Atlanta. One of the great things about our Encounter Atlanta trips is the way they help grow a passion for ministry and increase our biblical worldview. We’ve all been impacted by our time with this team and their partnership in ministry, and we pray for their continued growth as well as safe travels!
