Foreign Missions Service

Right now, through what Brother Willoughby is describing as a sovereign move of God, men and women are coming from all over the world giving $10,000 to Foreign Missions.  One young man has come up, unable to give $10,000, so he has offered to give himself and go wherever God wanted him to go.

So far, 14 missionary families are being sent from the Conference to the field.  The church has also pledged over $500,000.00 for crusades around the world.

Sis. Haney shared many stories of answered prayer, miracles and things God had done to inspire the younger generation to accept the call to service and dedication.

The minister's wives were challenged to accept the following vows:
1. Will you this day, Sept 28th, 2006, accept the challenge of the Spirit to renew your walk with God and dedicate your life anew?
2. Will you give yourself to prayer and daily study of God's Word?
3. Will you pray for revival?
4. Will you surrender your bodies to Jesus Christ?
5. Will you vow to live a life of purity and holiness, maintaining a good character as examples of Jesus Christ?
6. Will you do what you can do to fulfull the great commission?

The Passing of the Mantle:
AIM workers came forth first to receive their mantles from the older missionary women. Minister's wives, 50 and younger, came forth next, as the mantles were wrapped around the young women and prayers were prayed over all those participating.
