Friday through Sunday, November 12-14, we participated in the Annual Mission Conference at Holmen Baptist Church. Keith Habegger is the pastor of this local church ministry. We shared in the conference with the Gary Sprungers veteran missionaries to the Caribbean, and Sarah Marshall missionary appointee to Costa Rica. The conference opened on Friday evening with a service followed in Saturday evening by a carry-in dinner and service. Sunday services were the regular Sunday School and Morning and Evening services.
Carole and I were able to provide special music on Sunday. I preached for each of the five services following the missionary presentations. Also I was able to present our ministry as well on Sunday morning.
The Holmen Baptist Church congregation did a great job of hosting the meeting and providing gracious hospitality. Church members turned in faith promise commitments during the conference, surpassing last year’s commitment by almost $5,000 for the year. Pastor Habegger hopes to be able to add to and increase missionary support with this increased giving. We praise the Lord for this commitment to World-wide Missions.
