Wednesday through Sunday, September 30th-October 4th we participated in the Annual Missions Conference at Bible Baptist Church in Hudson. Mark Shore is the pastor of this local church ministry. Along with Michael and Tina Rains (Kenya) and Marc and Esther Zimmerman (France), we shared the work here in the state of Wisconsin. During the five-day conference we traded off the pulpit, ministry presentation and children’s ministry.
Saturday evening the three missionary families provided traditional food from their place of ministry. This international dinner gave the people of Bible Baptist Church a chance to taste a variety of food items. Our Wisconsin menu included: brats, cheese curds, German potato salad, cranberry salad, sugar cookies shaped like Wisconsin and a dessert from one of our Wisconsin pastor’s wives.
The closing service on Sunday night included a final message by Marc Zimmerman. At the end of the service the church showed a parade of nations via powerpoint of their missionary family and of people who have gone out of their church into various ministries. It was a blessing to see how God has used this one local church for the cause of Christ.
