Last week and weekend we were privileged to participate in the Global Missions Conference in the DFW area. It was actually hosted by Legacy Church of Christ and coordinated by Missions Resource Network -- the two groups of folks who have probably been most instrumental in keeping our family healthy through recent months and positioned to get back to the field long-term.
The GMC included lots of great messages and sessions, some of which I was able to sit in on and be encouraged by. More than anything else, though, it was a hub of missions people and a great time of visiting between them. I got to sit down and have conversations with a number of great people from various missions congregations, former and current missionaries, and the like.
Our family was given a booth area in the exhibition hall to set up a display. I threw this together in the last two days before the conference and it turned out great. It was a great spot to visit with people and for people to find us and learn more about the work. Here's Malachi checking it out:
This weekend we are the Lubbock area to meet with a church here that is considering supporting us. It seems like a really neat possibility, and we're looking forward to spending time with them.
