The 2010 Mission’s Conference was excellent this year with what could only be described as a sweet spirit.
The speakers were superb; each in their own way communicated their heart for the Lord and His Church. Each message seemed to be used by God to speak to us on the importance of supporting these global partners. The material needs that they expressed they desired: tires, a laptop, planes tickets, running shoes, a GPS and much, much more was easily met by the generosity of God’s people. The Lord blessed and $2000 extra was given to deposit into a 15-pax van fund, as seed money, for the Divakars, missionaries to Australia. We ate Saturday night until we couldn’t eat another bite at the International Potluck Dinner. Brother Yamazaki blessed our heart night after night with his incredible giftedness to play the flute. Gerald and Mary Branch pierced our hearts with their commitment to the people of Mexico for 25 years of continuous service on the mission field—they are to be honored. Henry Benach challenged us to think about the importance of taking the gospel to lost Jews who are depending upon their good works or lineage to Abraham for their eventual salvation. David Divakar opened the Scripture from Acts 17 and poured through each verse and related it to the Hindu culture of the 21st century. We fell in love with his two sons and wished they didn’t have to leave after only a day at the Academy. From Matthew 6, brother Branch closed the conference with a challenge to seek God first in every aspect of our lives. The days flew by and before we wanted it to end, it was over.
And, Steve Rahn visited twice via a video upload to share his heart about starting a church in Brockton, MA.
