go global missions workshop

ok, i'm still learning the nuances of using this new phone's camera, so the pic is terrible, but as far as i know, it's the only pic we took at the missions workshop this past weekend.

saturday was a great day for healing place church. it was a great day for a lot of people in a lot of places all over the world. it was great because nearly 200 people joined together for our first-ever go global missions workshop, and by being there, they were showing their intent to go on the mission field sometime during 2007. get that - nearly 200 missionaries being sent out on short-term missions trips in the next six or seven months. how cool is that?

we're sending people on missions trips to places like italy, canada and los angeles, and others to places like cambodia, mozambique, swaziland, peru and mexico. what may be the most exciting part of it all for me, though, is that when we start 2008, there will be a couple hundred more people who have missions even more deeply entrenched in their hearts and lives.

to all of you who came out at 8am on your saturday morning, thanks and congratulations - you're on your way to becoming a missionary.
