Focusing On Missions

Several of us at Sunset were blessed to be together at the Global Missions Conference in Arlington, Texas. It was a great gathering and many of our mission partners were there. Brenda, along with her mother and her sister Sharla, taught the third through sixth graders who attended the conference and several of us (Truitt, Jay and I) were able to teach classes there.

It was great to be reunited wth several of our graduates, including David and Olivia Nelson who are on their way to Kharkov, Ukraine as a part of a church planting team from SIBI and MRN. They met while Olivia was an AIMer in New Zealand. David had lived there most of his life as part of a mission family and was raised as a 'Kiwi'. David and Olivia graciously offered to come a assist in teaching the third through sixth graders about missions.

Partnership

It is always exciting to visit one of our ministry training schools and to preach and teach in local congregations, but it is even more exciting to do it with a dedicated mission partner. Mark Samsill (pictured left) is a member of the Sunset Council, an elder of the College Hill congregation in Fort Worth (my sponsoring congregation) and a good friend and mission worker. With his family, he came to Australia to bless the Christians here and see this important work.  Mark and I have taught side by side in Malawi, Tanzania, Ukraine, Australia, Texas, Wyoming, South Dakota and probably a few plaves I am forgetting. He has spoken in worship services, classes, seminars and chapel services around the world in Sunset's International Schools and the congregations that support them. We will be returning to Malawi later this year together to continue in the efforts of Sunset and College Hill.
