Just finished a missions conference at Shadow Mountain Baptist Church in Morgan Hill, CA. It truly was a great conference: from hearing Dr. Calvert preach, to gettting to know Pastor Haynes, to fellowshipping with the congregation. Our hosts were very gracious and kind; they took care of our every need. It was our first conference away from home and we were truly spoiled. A highlight was when Pastor Haynes took us clay pigeon shooting on Friday. I didn't start off well, but once Pastor Haynes showed me what to do, I was tearing it up!! Had a great time.
Dr. Calvert has a passion for church planting and challenged everyone to give our all for Christ. He also reminded us that the heartbeat of the New Testament church is supposed to be starting new churches. As someone who is preparing to go to the foreign field, the messages were very convicting and challenging.
The highlight of the entire conference though was at lunch after church on Sunday. I had the privilege to be present while another missionary led a young man to the Lord! At a conference where the focus is world evangelism, it is a wonderful thing to see someone pass from death unto life.
Thank you Shadow Mountain Baptist Church for a great conference and for a welcoming us with open arms. Thank you for taking us on for support!! We look forward to seeing everyone again in the future.
We are a family on our way to the mission field of the United Kingdom. Ryan, Elisabeth, Samuel, and James
