Mission Possible

This weekend is our church's mission conference. This is our first experience with a missions conference and I have to say it has been awesome so far!!

On Thursday and Friday we were able to speak to the 6th-12th grade classes, the elementary chapel and the 3K and 4K classes at Hollywood Christian School. What a blessing that was. The students learned about the importance of missions and about what is going on in Burkina Faso and how God is at work there. We had many good conversations with students and teachers who's hearts were touched by the need in Burkina and want to get involved and help. I believe that we met some future missionaries!

Today I was encouraged greatly by the other missionary wives at a luncheon that our women's ministry had. It is great to hear their stories and greater to see God at work in their lives. It will be a tremendous blessing knowing I have women who are committed to praying for us. Thank you ladies!!

I am certain that Mike was also encouraged greatly by the men at their breakfast.

I want to share a video that shows some of the hardships that families face in Burkina Faso. A single mother faces difficulties trying to take care of her children. A single mother in Burkina Faso has challenges that we cannot imagine.

Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble.
Then your light will shine out from the darkness,
and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.                   - Isaiah 58:10

Love and blessings!
