Every year I am encouraged and renewed during the Mission's Conference. This year we were blessed to have Tom Mahairas and his wife Vicky, come in to share with us and challenge us through God's Word. Our theme this year was; "For the Least of These"
How appropriate to have Tom and his wife Vicky challenge us this wknd, they were saved through the ministry of Word of Life, they were "the Least of These" (please take a few moments to read his testimony,http://www.citivision.org/contact/tombio.htm) Tom got caught up in the "Hippie Movement" which included drugs, years went by and Tom escaped to the small town of Lake George where a BI team was out on Open Air sharing the Gospel, a young man shared his Faith with Tom and he was saved!!how exciting to see the evident work of the Lord through their lives as he shared their testimonies and the opportunities they have had to share their faith with others.
They are the founders of CitiVision http://www.citivision.org/home/
and Manhattan Bible Church in New York City, and other ministries in prison's, schools, and cities around the world!! Their passion is the City! The sole purpose of their ministry is to share the Gospel, equip and train new believer's to then go out share their faith in their own cities. Many students, staff members, church members and visitors were challenged to dedicate their lives to the Lord!! How exciting!! Here are the videos of the Conference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvEXxCBUDFM and http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wolh-missions-conference
Every Mission's Conference we are challenged also with a Faith Promise. You commit to give a monetary amount through the year having Faith that God will provide the amount you committed. I love to hear the stories throughout the year of God's provision! This year our Faith Promise will go to the David and Felicia Lee who work with Street Children in Romania. Here is a brief video of their ministry:
The goal this year was 1,600,000ft or $8,000 USD. after ALL the pledges were counted and Recounted the committed amount that came in was $17,980 USD!!!! OVER 200% of our original goal!!!!!
Please pray for Andy and I to remain faithful to the work the Lord has for us here in Hungary, and please pray that God will provide the amount we committed to for Faith Promise.
Thank you for your Faithful Prayers!!
