BURDENED FOR OUR WORLD…

Our Wednesday evening service began the global portion of our Outreach Conference. We had scheduled missionaries from El Salvador, Germany, Mozambique, and the Philppines to come and challenge us about worldwide missions. It was a blessing to see the Spirit move in the hearts of our people when the need to reach the world was presented.

Our choir sang a new song entitled I Am Called To Make A Difference by Cary Schmidt. This song is excellent for missions and youth conferences. The words to the chorus are as follows:

I am called to make a difference
In a world that needs to change.
I am called to be a spokesman
For the Name above all names.
Called to bear the cross of Christ,
Called to give Him all my life.
I must give my world a chance
And I will make, yes I will make
The difference.

A mixed trio sang Be The One. And it was amazing how God tied all the songs together with the message we were about to hear. Brother Joey Weaver, missionary to El Salvador, preached about Christ’s compassion, concern, and solution for reaching the world our of Matthew 9. El Salvador is a country of almost seven million people, many of which are very open to the Gospel. It is amazing to see how God worked in this young man’s life in calling him to this field. If you have never seen the great open door God has in El Salvador, click on the link to Lancaster Baptist Church. Go to the multimedia section and watch the video presentation of this needy and ready mission field.


Another great blessing that God has shown us through this confrence is the openess of our people to the leading of the Holy Spirit. The altars have been filled each night, many of which are children seeking God’s will for their lives. I am excited to see God call many of our young people and young adults to the ministry, whether in America or on foreign land. Please continue to pray for our conference that God would be glorified and that our church will surrender to God’s call upon our lives.
