Earlier this month we attended our first missions conference ever. The conference was at Fellowship Bible Church in Methuen, MA (northwest of Boston). The church seemed determined to encourage the visiting missionary families in any way possible. Many people told us they would be praying for us, and several tried to encourage us while we were there with with thoughtful words, gracious hospitality, and financial gifts. In addition to the blessings that God poured out through the church, He blessed us through the preaching of the keynote speaker (Paul Seger) and through the other missionary presentations. The entire experience reassured us of His abiding care and love for His own.
