South Africa Mission Journey Returns

UPDATE: South Africa Worship Conference
The Brentwood Baptist Music & Worship Team had another amazing trip to Cape Town, South Africa! They led two days of workshops for local musicians covering topics such as songwriting, music theory, vocal performance, worship leading, worship planning, live sound, and studio production. The workshops concluded with a community concert on Saturday evening featuring the winners of the songwriting competition, other workshop participants, and the Masiphumelele Baptist Choir.

The winners were given the opportunity to record their songs in a local studio in Cape Town. The Brentwood Baptist Music & Worship Team will take the vocal tracks and produce radio-ready songs to be played on CCFM, Cape Town’s Christian radio station. The workshops and recordings are an effort to encourage and support aspiring Christian musicians and worship leaders in the Cape Town area.+

Prayer For: Habitat Build on Hold
Thank you to everyone who volunteered for our upcoming Habitat for Humanity build. The build has been delayed, once again, and Habitat is waiting on final approval from the city of Franklin to begin the build. During this time, please pray:
For the city of Franklin, that they would finalize paperwork to allow Habitat for Humanity and our volunteers to begin building a wonderful home for Shantha Saragoor and her family.

For Shantha, Prerana, and Shreyas, that they would not lose heart due to continued delays and that they would find strength in waiting.
