Our missions conference was incredible!!!
Thanks for all your prayers and financial gifts for the missionaries. They were honored to receive many of the items they had requested in their "Prayer Request Letter." We were able to provide 6 new laptop computers and 2 washers and dryers for Freddie's Camp Grace Farm. Each missionary was provided with transportation expenses, a great place to stay, great meals, an opportunity to present their ministry, an a very generous financial gift heading into the holiday season.
The largest gallery I've ever had on the golf course was three, and they were against me. After having my neck surgery, I was thrilled to play 18 holes with Jesse Martinez, Gary Stefan, and Jan Velazquez (3 deacons).
Bob Brookes still has it! What a voice to use for the Lord. The meetings were well attended and all the meals provided great exchange with our missionaries.
Although 5 families came from out of state for the conference, The Payne family (Kedron, Jamie, Amanda, Kaylee and Amy) came from North Carolina and joined Betty and I at the Village Inn for fellowship. They . They learned of Calvary from our YouTube ministry.
