As I sit in my rental house, watching the live stream of the conference (because my sweet kids are sleeping) I have tears running down my cheeks. They gave a brief history tonight of some of the ways God has moved in this ministry over the years. How He has used ordinary men and women who step out in faith to do incredible things and bring others into a relationship with Christ. It’s been 60 years of God moving mountains. Vonnette Bright shared some stories tonight of how it all started with the faith of a few and it’s grown to over 25,000 staff and part-time staff and serve in more than 191 countries. It’s incredible really.
They had everyone recall, write down, and hang on a cord around the auditorium why/when God called them into ministry. When I watched Vonnette hang up her card it overwhelmed me with emotion; Because of her and Bill’s faith and obedience and the grace of God in our lives all of us are here today doing what we’re doing. And she’s been faithfully ministering for 60 years now! I’m so thankful to be a part of an organization of such great faith.
What has God called you to do? Are you following after Him and His call on your life? If not, what’s holding you back?
