Why I Lead GA

I belonged to a GA group of 1, way back when. In those days, GA began at age 9, and we had just returned to central China, where Mom and Dad were missionaries.

Prayer: A Different Question to Consider for Leadership

“Lord, I confess my prayer life doesn’t feel very mature,” I prayed. It wasn’t as if I lacked things to pray about or occasions to praise God. In that season, a genuine desire for increased spiritual maturity prompted me to evaluate my private prayer life.

Christmas is my favorite time of year! I love everything about it: decorating the tree, setting out my Nativities, sending and receiving cards, baking goodies, singing Christmas songs, and wrapping Christmas presents. There are family traditions that we all like to keep.

Thankful for You

Thankful

For Thanksgiving week, the WMU preschool team gives thanks for you! Week after week you serve the Lord by teaching preschoolers in Mission Friends. You rarely receive thanks because you are usually encouraging your preschoolers to give thanks for other helpers. What you do in teaching Mission Friends makes a difference in each life you touch. You also make a difference in the ministries of the missionaries as you teach about them and lead your preschoolers to pray for them. Several of the missionaries recently have expressed their thanks for you, so this week we wanted to share their words of thanks.
