Has Experiencing God drawn you closer to Him? Has it challenged you? Has it encouraged you in your relationship with Him? Have you been convicted of an area where you need to serve?  I pray that your answer is yes to all of these questions. God wants to have a personal relationship with you. And out of that relationship will come the desire to be On Mission with Him.

 Sunday we begin our week of prayer for North American Missions. Having served in a region of the country where the churches benefitted greatly from the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, I know the incredible value of this offering. The Missions Committee set a goal of $10,000. That is a challenging goal. As I said Sunday, if you have been giving above your tithe over the last month to help with the loan payoff goal, I encourage you to switch that giving towards Annie Armstrong until we reach our goal. Paying off debt is a good goal, but giving to mission work is even better. We will pick up the loan payoff push after we reach our Annie goal. Now since, I have said the goal is challenging, ya’ll will probably push past that goal in two weeks!
