This is God’s stated will, recorded in His Holy Word, for every believer in every Biblical church. The Lord’s church here at Summerville has been blessed to be an active part of our Chief Shepherd’s expressed will for many years. Worldwide missions and global evangelization have been at the forefront of the ministry here for many decades. For the past thirty years our obedience to God’s will for Biblical churches has grown dramatically. Over twenty years ago, the Lord led this church to take its first missions trip which was to Alaska; in a few weeks, we will be taking our sixth missions trip which will also be back to Alaska. Trips like these give our church a chance to work side by side with one of our supported missionaries on their own field of ministry. We are allowed to get a first-hand view of the work we are investing in financially and the souls that are being reached with the help of our support. It enables us to labor with our fellow servants in the work that we invest in financially and prayerfully. It also gives us an opportunity to help in carrying the burden of these faithful servants of the Lord by engaging in a project they need completed for the furtherance of their ministry. This year’s missions trip to Alaska is to serve with Israel and Rebecca Warren. The Warrens serve in the native villages of St. Marys and Pitkas Point, Alaska. Bro. Warren also travels by snow machine, boat, and four wheeler to other remote villages in northwestern Alaska to spread the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth in that area. I praise the Lord for already bringing in over $13,000.00 which has been raised by our church family and team members, as well as their family and friends who are supporting them on this missions trip. Monthly missions giving, special project love offerings, going on missions trips, praying for missionaries, and our personal involvement in sharing the Gospel with the lost are all part of our obedience to the Great Commission of our Saviour to us all. This week we have several from our church helping our church be obedient to the Great commission in our own valley during the Union County Fair. Please pray for God to work through this outreach event to introduce people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. And then the following week, pray for the team of nine going from our church to minister in Alaska.
