Global Outreach Conference
We just got back from a short but sweet trip down south. Our home church in NC hosted its annual Global Outreach Conference. It has been a couple years since we have been able to attend and I had forgotten how encouraging a weekend like this can be.
We had the opportunity to see some amazing speakers like Jason Janz (a pastor from a church plant in inner city Denver), and hear some of the awesome things that are going on around the world. We caught up with old friends and realized that the kids that we once worked with in the youth ministry at Colonial have now graduated from college! (We felt so old!)
It was also a blessing to be able to visit and share with the other missionary couples. We spoke to couples who have been in full time ministry as long as we have been alive. What wisdom and encouragment they had to share! It was also great to see other couples with young children.
A huge thanks to everyone who put the conference together. It was a blessing to our family! I also want to thank Greg's parents for taking care of the kids while we were busy all weekend!
