One of the aspects of our ministry that Sharon and I both enjoy a lot is the opportunity that we have to encourage churches in their global vision.  We were blessed to participate in several mission conferences this Spring and have several scheduled for late Summer and Fall.  Every church develops their own theme and structures their own schedule.  The desired result is similar: more people participating personally in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.  There is no sensation that compares to that of being used as a simple instrument in the hand of the Almighty.  When faith is increased, when hearts are challenged, when the vision is sharpened, then the Great Commission is obeyed, young missionary families are sent and God is glorified!
