Last week a group of young adults from my church took a trip up to Allen Park, Michigan for the biennial Student Global Impact Conference.

This student missions conference is always a time of tremendous spiritual renewal!  Godly men who are serving the Lord around the world challenged us to truly know God and abide in Him, to sacrificially love others, and to be ready and willing to give even our lives for the sake of His Name.

Dr. Phil Hunt teaching a workshop on The Problem of Missionary Affluence.

In addition to the many sermons and workshops, there was also ample time to fellowship with with many like-minded believers.

May the work God wrought in our hearts during this conference bear eternal fruit as we go out “seeking the obedience of the nations.”

I Chronicles 16:24-25, 31  Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.  For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.
