Off-Road Encounters begins Sept. 22

September 19th, 2014

Wandering in Wadi Rum, a bumpy camel ride to Petra … don't miss out on Sept. 22!

Would you like to see Wadi Rum – the area where the Israelites roamed the desert en route to the Promised Land? Share a desert culinary experience with a Bedouin? Ride a camel through the ancient city of Petra?
We are inviting you to join in Off-Road Encounters, a learning and giving project for the whole family.
If you haven't already, sign up so you can get in on the adventure!
As you watch video episode #1, "The Adventure Begins," what will you and your family take away? I couldn't help but think about how God still feeds people in the dry "desert" times of our lives. Or how humans are so thirsty for God's voice that we'll fall to our knees and pray, even in the hot sand. 
Would you pray with us that unreached Muslims would have the opportunity to meet the One who loves, hears and longs to have a relationship with them? Whether God directs your family to be a prayer partner or to give a donation, remember that through Nov. 14, Sonlight will match your gift of love. Learn more about the giving project.

Sign up for Off-Road Encounters!

September 3rd, 2014

Sonlight is going off-road to tell people that Jesus loves them!
Can you imagine a part of the world where 86% of the people have never met someone who knows Jesus? That's the reality in countries such as Indonesia, Jordan, Kazakhstan and Malawi.

Starting today, we're headed that direction. Lord willing, we're going to lower that number! There's plenty of room aboard the "caravan." We invite you to join us as we "go into all the world" to extend God's hand to the unreached.
Some itinerary highlights to help you prepare for the exciting journey:
(Read the full details here.)
  • This year, we're partnering with Frontiers in a quest called Off-Road Encounters: Beyond Adventure in the Muslim World.
  • The goal: reach out to Muslims who have no Christian witness.
  • Our travel hosts, a suburban American family (the Richardsons), will provide an up-close-and-intriguing video look at everyday Muslim life abroad.
  • With each cross-cultural encounter, stereotypes will be shattered, commonalities found and a biblical view of the world reinforced.
  • Sign up at Off today for access to an engaging interactive curriculum that encourages your children to boost their scholastic skills and get a pulse on God's heart for Muslim people.
  • Through Nov. 14, Sonlight will match every dollar your family contributes, up to $167,000. Between us Sonlighters, we are trusting God to raise $334,000!

Let the Off-Road Encounters begin! Come along for an eye-opening experience sure to ignite conversation and inspire learning.  

Sign up now to start the first leg of the journey, which begins with a video prologue ("Dad's Big Surprise"). When you do, Frontiers will mail a Welcome Kit with tools to help your children make the most of their adventure.
