Global Missions Weekend

This weekend our church hosted a Global Missions conference. It was interesting learning how missionaries are spreading the Good News. We had a luncheon Saturday where all the missionaries gathered and we got to ask questions. We learned so much and would love to go on a mission trip one year :) Later Saturday night we dropped the kids off at church for the Kids Mission Explosion. We went to the Harrison's(thanks for having us) to have a potluck and listen to the missionary assigned to our class. It was a great time of fellowship. I loved seeing how excited she was about getting God's word out there. After our time together we went and picked the kids up. They couldn't stop talking about the great time they had. They were giving us all the facts they had learned about Singapore. I don't think they wanted to come home!! Noah said he tried noodles with his chopsticks. Zoe made some beautiful crafts. Kain told us about the games they played. Thank you to all the people that made their night great!

Thanks Mrs. Kim for the pictures above.

They were still smiling when they got home. Who knows maybe God has a plan for one of them to be a missionary!

This morning we received a wonderful sermon from a missionary in Africa. Then we went to our SS to learn more about the missionary assigned to our class. After that we had a great lunch and were able to walk around to different booths. We had a great time looking at things from all the countries. I hope one day we have the privilege of going on a mission trip.

What an awesome idea. Great way to incorporate all ages into the missions ministries. Get them interested at a young age. I went on a missions trip in High School. Changed my life.
