Missions Emphasis Days throughout the year and Missions Conference are in place to remind us, to convict us, and to challenge us to be more involved purposefully. As a church, we must continue to give to Faith Promise yearly; we need to give at least the amount we have already given. However, the goal should be to give more than last year. Together we should endeavor to ask the Lord to increase our faith. As a church, we are investing heavily in the next coming year as we begin FirstBible School of Translation (FBST). What is that, you might say? FBST is a program to train men and women for the mission field in areas of Asia, as well as other continents and countries which have need for the Word of God. FBST is a school that will take the next foundational step in missions from not only going and preaching, but also to providing the Word of God in the needed languages of the target people groups. I have often used the verse in Haggai 1:13 to remind us that it takes the Lord’s messenger as well as the Lord’s message to reach the world with the Gospel.
Thank you for attending this year’s conference and for taking time to read the magazine. We must all do our part so they can have the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In His work together,
