World Conference was, for me, a very positive and uplifting experience. To be with the Saints from all over the world is truly an amazing experience. To hear the prayers and even sermons in other languages translated into English from French or Spanish or Tahitian (or any number of other languages) reminds us that we are a global community and a world-wide church. Our mission in Tahiti or Hawaii or Dominican Republic or Haiti or even suburban Chicago is all the same. The mission of Jesus Christ is what matters most in all the world. I hope those of us who were blessed to be able to attend can somehow share the excitement of the experience to all the Saints in Oklahoma Mission Center.
In the spirit of global community, enjoy the Flag Ceremony from World Conference 2016 below.
There are moments when it can appear that there is nothing but bad news that comes from World Church, especially when it comes to finances. However, for this month’s testimony I want to to share with you another perspective, the other side of the story, the good news about generosity in the church and the impact we are making. Here are three generosity facts for each Mission Initiative from the past 12 months:
Invite People To Christ
Abolish Poverty and End Suffering
Develop Disciples to Serve
What is the message we should take from the past 12 months in the life of the church?
I want to suggest that the message is: Membership is growing, generosity is increasing and the church is making an impact. Thank you!
