This morning, at a beautiful location on another gorgeous midwestern fall day, we arrived here for a special breakfast.
In the past year, one of our partnering churches, Christ Community Church in Batavia, IL, sent out over 25 groups of people on what they call "Go Teams". Over 300 individuals from this church traveled to six different countries all over the world, to share the Gospel, build relationships, and serve ministries in a myriad of ways. Their commitment to missions is awesome!
This morning's time together was a thank you to all of the leaders who led those trips.
With about 40 leaders gathered, we fellowshipped, enjoyed good food, worshipped together, and then listened to Dave teach! They asked him to bring something from the Word that would further equip, as well as encourage, these committed followers of Jesus. It was such a rich morning together.
I didn't get a picture in the end since I was enjoying lots of different conversations with many people! But it meant a lot to me that the church leadership gave everyone a copy of my book, No Less Than Yes, as their thank you gift to end the morning.
It's a joy and privilege to be partners together with this church in reaching the world for Christ!
