Missionfest was this past weekend. If you did not get a chance to go you really missed out. It great to hear what God is doing in the world. I went in on Saturday night with some friends. We wanted to hear Steve Saint. He is the son of Nate Saint. Nate was killed by natives when he went to share the gospel with them. Steve's family (he was just a kid when this happened) continued to love and share the message with this tribe. Many have given their lives to God including some of the men who killed Nate Saint. It is an interesting story. The DVD is called End of the Spear. Well Steve had a good message. He called for us Christians to be active in sharing our faith.
A couple of other things happened at Missions Fest which were highlights for me. One was finding a book written by a Jim Cunningham. Jim attended the church that I grew up in. He would occasionally preach. I still remember one of his sermons. It constantly challenges me. I have not seen him in many years. Another highlight was meeting a missionary who was in the Philippines with us. We did not specifically with him but we meet him and his family a couple of times. It was really neat to hear about what God is doing in that country.
