Missions Conference

Someone said, "A missions conference is a church business meeting where they determine the fate of the lost world." We are right now in the third night of our Church Missions Conference at the Santa Maria Valley LIGHTHOUSE Baptist Church. I would just love to give you all a play-by-play of it, but I'm just a little too busy. I did want to stop in here and say that I am expecting great things. I am expecting God to touch our hearts and show us a little of His own heart for all people everywhere. I am expecting God to show us ways we can affect missions that we never dreamed. There is more, but I need to get the family ready to go.
Will fill you all in as soon as I can!

As a child I always enjoyed mission conferences. The churches that we were in for conferences or when we were on furlough were always so kind. I loved the experiences that we had.

Glad you liked the services! I have talked to some mk's and all they have to talk about are horror stories. I can say that we have always had a positive experience. I am amazed and humbled by how good God's people have been to us. Our missions conference is SPECIAL though. It's OUR church and WE got to be involved!!!! That was just awsome. I'm gonna blog about it, but later--I'm so tired I am starting to drool on the keys.

Oh, I could give you some stories of things that happened and stuff. But then, that wouldn't be an encouragement to you.

I do know how it can get sometimes, since i am a pk, and you're right--it does no good to sit around rumenating about the horror stories. I have been encouraged by the way our deputation has gone. We are going to be done in March of next year, and we started in February of 2003. We have really had a blast.

Hummm, Santa Maria in CA??? That's a few hours from where I live. I think I know some people at that church! We just finished a mission conference in my church and we were able to double our faith promise giving! Praise the Lord! Oh, by the way, I'm Corene's cousin!:-)

Yes in Cali! There are a couple of good churches in Santa Maria. (I know that's not a normal thing in this state!) Praise the Lord He really blessed your church! It's nice to "meet" you, Holly!
