Time for a Celebration

Our first Global Impact Celebration

Our first Global Impact Celebration

This weekend we attended our first ever Global Impact Celebration. It was held at the Washington, Georgia FUMC. What a warm welcome this congregation gave us! We were hosted and loved and blessed through a wonderful weekend of celebrating the mission and ministry of this local church!

 

 

Settling in to a beautiful guest apartment, a Friday night banquet and Q&A with missionaries followed by prayer was a hospitable and refreshing beginning to the weekend.

Breakfast on Saturday, a ladies’ luncheon, and cottage meetings in the evening allowed so many opportunities to really get to know the heart of people at this church and to share ours with them. The guys enjoyed an afternoon of fishing and archery, a highlight for Luke. Then on Sunday, Len and I split up to share with Sunday school classes and were blessed by their words of encouragement. The worship service was a fitting end to a three days of joyful commitment to reach outside the walls of the church in love and labor for His Kingdom.

An amazing missions committee!

An extra bonus blessing was finding that so many in the congregation were somehow involved in education. I can’t wait to see how God will bring us together again and give us opportunities to work together in missions and education in the future!
