World Outreach Weekend

I spent a wonderful long weekend of ministry and being ministered to at Fellowship Bible Church's World Outreach Weekend. To attend, I traveled to Longview, Texas.

There were various activities that gave creative opportunities to connect with the church members. Activities included a banquet followed by "speed dating", a men's breakfast (with tasty Texas cholesterol), a woman's brunch (which they didn't invite me to attend for some strange reason), a tour of the new kids and youth building, snacks and fellowship with old friends, a youth program where they acted out missionary's stories, and Sunday morning missionaries told their stories as sermon illustrations.

Missionaries Greeting the Church
I got to stay with a fun family; Michael and Candy, their four teens and cats and dogs. They went out of their way to ensure I was most comfortable!

My Wonderful Host Family
How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity! It's like bacon grease running down James' beard and dripping off his fingers. (Psalm 133:1-2 Paraphrased)
