GM Family Appreciation Dinner
On November 12, 2017 we had the honor of hosting the Global Missions Family Appreciation Dinner, to not only appreciate our brothers and sisters, but also to celebrate the amazing things that God is doing through them and the ministry they are serving in. We were able to have meaningful conversations over a good meal, and really got to know one another and the Global Missions community.
Some of the highlights of this gathering were worshipping God, hearing the stories and testimonies of our missionaries, praying for one another, and reflecting on our answered prayers. We were inspired and encouraged of how God has been faithful in answering our prayers, as we reflected and testified the fruits of them. One of the answered prayer we celebrated was of how more younger people joined the Global Missions community, as this was one of our prayer for the last couple of years. Another answered prayer we celebrated was through the lives of our sisters from West Asia. Having partnered with our missionary Ingrid through prayer over the years, we were able to celebrate its fruits as we met and heard the testimony of Gizem. We are truly excited and thankful to have been able to be a part of these miracles.
As the year 2017 is coming to an end, our hope and challenge for you is to continue to press on through prayer "Until the End and Beginnings", and experience the power of prayer and witness God at work. "Prayer is the beginning and end, the source and the fruit, the core and the content, the basis and the goal of all peacemaking", and by praying we are able to come alongside God and join Him as He reveals and fulfills His beautiful will (Henry Nouwen).
Please use this blog to share your prayer(s), and let us as a community, cover for one another, our church and our workers around the globe, and become catalysts for change in the world.
