With Portugal’s strong ties to Roman Catholicism, the anniversary of the reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Fatima is a huge event in the country. During the week there will be an estimated 500,000 devout Catholics arriving to offer prayers and worship to Mary. These people are lost and need to hear about the saving power of Jesus! Will you come and share the hope you have in Portugal?
During the outreach we will be interacting with the pilgrims by giving out water, Christian literature, and offering to pray for people. As a team, we will also spend a lot of time in prayer, as there is a very real battle going on in Fatima. October 8 – Arrival Date, anytime October 9- attend and worship in a local church October 10-13 – outreach October 14 – fun team outing October 15 – departure day
