Our Lord, before ascending into heaven gave us one last instruction on what He wanted us to do. Read here what He said in Matthew 28:18-19 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. (19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:.
Jesus gave instruction that we are to take the gospel into every nation, and as your pastor I want to lead you to be obedient to this command. The way I plan to do this is by offering two trips a year. One trip will be a foreign trip, and the other will be a local trip.
This coming year we will be taking a trip to South East India. I am really excited that we have 7 people from our church who are going on this trip. I was apporached by many who wanted to go but could not because of the dates of the trip. So next year I’m gonna plan a trip durning the summer or spring break so more peope will be able to go. I’m thinking that we will go to Peru instead of India so that will also make the price a little cheaper as well.
For a home mission trip this year we went to Jelly stone and had a great turn out. We are still looking at what we will do for home missions next year. We may go to Eastern Kentucky or West Virginia. We are in the process of working out when and where that trip will be.
So be praying about being involved and where God wants you to go. I realize that because of circumstances, health, scheduling, or money that not everyone can physicaly go on these trips, but I want to encourage you to be a part of the trip in some way. You can pray, give, and encourage those who are going. I want all of us to be a part of this mission trip. We are not going as a small group. We are going as a church. I can’t wait to see what God does with us. He is so good to us.
