A Note from Cheryl Mikels, Director of Missions

God is at work in our world, and He has invited us to be a part of the greatest, most diverse, and significant cause in history - His Kingdom Work! Matthew 28:18-20, "And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

Mission's is at the heart of all we do as believers. We press on to complete the Great Commission and to love the world as God loves it. The opportunities we have to be His disciples are limitless. We are privileged to be co-laborers with 11 missionaries and 3 mission organizations. It is an awesome calling. However, they are very aware that they cannot do it alone. The "Great Commission" is two-fold: their obedience to go, and our faithfulness to give, pray and encourage.

I ask that you consider over this next year to send a note or email of encouragement, pray for them, and read about what is taking place in the country they serve. Our desire is that the relationship between the missionaries and our body will be deepened and our prayer focus will be strengthened. 

We are saved to serve!
