What a great 2009 Missions Conference we had this week!
First, we had a Kenyan Pastor preach in the Sunday morning worship service and it was powerful! This man is a true Kenyan and will return to his country in the next few years. In the meantime, he and his wife and children are “missionaries” to the United States (if you understand what I mean). They are teaching us a lot about Who God is.
Second, we had a missionary to Venezuela for the past 14 years speak to us on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings! This lady was extremely knowledgeable and encouraged us all to be more prayerful and aware of the need to share the Gospel worldwide.
By God’s grace, we truly were changed as a result of the past few days. We are thankful to these persons for challenging and encouraging us to endeavor to keep the Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20.
