The local churches we work with in the city held their missionary conference this past weekend. This year they had a Pastor Jeff from Ohio, with Missionary Bruce Triplehorn as his translator for the conference. It was a moving event for several that attended but these churches are still struggling with the issues of sending people. These GBC churches were founded by American Missionaries, but the same passion that they were planted with did not get passed on. The missions conference is an effort to build a vision to reach out. Those in the photo are some of the core people involved with the missions ministry of the churches. I know may of these people well and some have worked directly with me. Please pray that their passion for reaching out can light a fire in these churches. The same fire that the missionaries that planted them in the first place.
