Until All Have Heard

Our 2008 Missions Conference officially begins on Sunday, but 24 hours of prayer for this important week in our church begins this evening. Pray with us.

This year, we'll think together about unreached people groups throughout the world. . . peoples, tribes, and tongues who have no viable Gospel witness.

The week will be filled with events to help us engage with our visiting missionaries and think about unstoppable global plan and purpose of God to redeem a people for Himself from every nation, tribe, and tongue. You will receive a schedule in Sunday's worship folder.

Unfortunately, our family will miss this first Sunday of the conference as we are called away for the memorial service of our good friend, Dave Carlson, who went to be with the Lord this last week after a long battle with cancer. You may recall, I shared about our visit with Dave last Summer. Dave was the best friend of my father-in-law, Werner Jacobsen, for over fifty years and played a special role in Susie's life.

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers will be with you!

One can view this as an're making such a difference that there is an element of opposition.
