June Foreign Mission Monthly News

Endeavoring to obey the Word of our Lord...Go ye into all the lands and preach the Gospel to every creature.

Time for fellowship

On July 12-15th, New Ipswich, NH will host the ALCA Convention. The Foreign Mission will have a table set up with information about who we are, what we do, past and future trips, and much more. Come and visit!
On Saturday afternoon, there will also be a Foreign Mission presentation. Pastor Giovanni Sinay from Guatemala and Bishop Louis Mphahlele from South Africa will be sharing during this time. Look for signs or ask at the FM table for more information.
We look forward to meeting you in person. If you have an interest in foreign mission work, please share your particular calling and desire with us!
Let's pray that God through His Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus Christ to each of us during the convention and throughout the year.

Word from the field

[In Yoshkar Ola, Russia], we also visited the main Agricultural College and I spoke to a number of students (see class above). This was my first visit to this college, and though the teacher seemed a bit suspicious of us at first, by the time we left, we were being enthusiastically asked to return. "The next time you come," said the English teacher, "we will have many more students for you to talk with!"
