This past weekend members of the WMPL fellowship gathered together in prayer during our annual meeting and celebration. After some light refreshments, we began in worship by singing Come, Thou Almighty King and Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me. A number of our missionaries were able to join us and give brief reports on the work God has been doing in them and through them. Jeff gave a brief report on the state of our finances throughout this past year. We expressed our gratitude for those who were completing a term of service with the Home Council and welcomed those who had been newly elected. The Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba shared a message with us about being ‘dove’ missionaries – those who declare both the total justice of God and the total grace of God – those who do not return. We joined in prayer for the work of God in this world and closed with the song Build Your Kingdom Here as our prayer. Then, Sunday evening and Monday saw the Home Council meeting at our offices.
If you missed the event, here are a few images from the day. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!
