Thank You

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who participated in the Great Commission Auction and Feast. Thanks to all of you who came to the dinner and bid on items in the auction. This is the single largest fund raiser for the mission trip. We couldn’t do what we do on the trip without the support we receive from all of you. I also want to thank all the people who worked behind the scenes to make the dinner and auction a success.The night wouldn’t be possible without all the people who give their time and talents. Cooking, serving and cleaning up after a meal for 18o people is no small task. I would like to thank all those who organized and set up for the auction. Thanks to Tim and Chris for overseeing the entire event and organizing all the work. I would like to say a special thanks to Richard, Nick and Brian for all their help in cleaning up all day, and all night. Those three guys work harder than anybody I know, doing things nobody else wants to do and they do it all without complaining. So, to all of you, the people who attended and bid at the auction, the people who helped with cooking and serving the meal, the folks who organized the items for auction and tracked the bids and payments to all who helped clean up after – THANK YOU!

The night was a great success. Everyone who is involved in the trip, from the supporters to the people who are going, come together to create a successful event. In many ways the night is a model of the entire trip. Everyone has a part to play, and when the parts come together completing something that none of us could do by ourselves. I hope that the excitement will continue to build for this trip because I believe God is going to do something amazing in our church and in our lives.

  1. Thank you for your praise of our guys from Camp Daniel. They are with us because they are missionaries. Not because they go to Africa or anywhere else, but because we have chosen as a community to be missionaries... all the time. It is my hope to be vigilant in opening people hearts to the concept that missions work is Christian work. When we become Christians, we become missionaries. We believe that service to our brothers and sisters is the way to direct hearts towards God so He can do His work. Richard, Nick and Brian will never write a blog, preach a sermon to a church, or even read through the bible, yet they are powerful witnesses of Jesus, servants who preserver through anything, willing to do whatever it takes to get Gods work done with joy in it all. Whether we are cooking dinner at a fundraiser, making new friends at a MEGA Super Bowl Party, meeting visitors on a Sunday morning at LHC, or building a school in Africa we must have a missionaries heart if we are do be doing what God has laid out for us in His Word.
