After the term ended and grading was complete, we quickly switched our focus to getting ready for the fast approaching Proclaim Conference. Our sending church pastor, Dave Doran, was the keynote speaker. We centered on the theme of the Great Commission, especially emphasizing the central role that local churches have to play in that mission and how establishing local churches is the goal of the mission itself. It was exciting to have an opportunity to speak to this essential topic. The Lord brought nearly 500 church leaders, members, and others our way. Please pray with us that the Lord will continue to grant a sense of responsibility for the mission and a sense of confidence that Christ's presence with us is sufficient for this great cause.
