Another Celebration of Missions

The end of October we made a trip to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. No, we weren’t heading to the UGA vs. Florida game! We were spending the weekend at World Gospel Mission’s Southeast Celebration of Missions.

It was a small crowd, but represented in those numbers were years of faithful prayers and generous support of missionaries around the world. Many drove for hours to share this time together hearing of God’s call and His work transforming lives both here and abroad. We were blessed as we heard fellow missionaries share how God is moving in their countries and heard their heart for the people they serve. We were encouraged as we chatted with longtime supporters of missions and heard their heart for reaching the world for Christ. We were filled with joy to share a meal and memories with co-laborers from our years in Honduras. And we were so glad to spend this weekend with Len’s parents who have been a part of this missions conference for a number of years.

Below are a few glimpses of the weekend…
