Mission Fest 2

On Saturday my girls were feeling better so we went to mission fest. It was really good. I enjoyed talking to some of the different missionaries - it is amazing to hear about what God is doing in the world. We also listen to Gracia Burnham. She and her family were missionaries in the Philippines. Gracia and her husband, Martin, were kidnapped and held for just over a year. When the government moved into set Burnham's free Martin was killed in the gun battle. Gracia was rescued. Gracia told a couple of stories about her time in captivity. After telling some stories she talked about sacrificing everything for God. She challenged us to give up everything and join God in his mission in the world.
Did anyone else go? If you did what was your highlight?
