LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE 2008…

Amy’s BFF, Amanda!

The majority of the week was spent at Lancaster Baptist Church’s Spiritual Leadership Conference. Lancaster Baptist Church was my church home for four years while I attended West Coast Baptist College. It was great to “come home” for a few days and reconnect with friends. 

For three days, we attended sessions and services that helped encourage and equip us for the ministry. The evening services were powerful and life-changing! The service on Wednesday night was unlike anything I have ever been a part of before.

A presentation of the ministries of Lancaster Baptist Church’s missionaries to El Salvador (the Charter and Weaver families) was shared during the conference. In the video, they showed how God has opened a door of ministry to El Salvador. Both missionary families have been mightily used of God. During the survey trip to El Salvador, certain people were led to Christ- a restaurant owner, a police chief, and a few others. During the same service on Wednesday night, the restaurant owner, the police chief, the mayor, and the governor of the state were in attendance and gave their testimonies of salvation. All had a common theme, “Come to El Salvador and help us share Christ!” Even the president of El Salvador sent his greeting and said that he and his government would do anything they can to help any missionaries coming to El Salvador. What blessing! What an open door!

By the way, the Charter’s have already started the church. Guess where they met? At the banquet room of the restaurant owner who was the first one led to the Lord during the survey trip to El Salvador. The police chief provides protection for the missionaries. The governor and the mayor offered any public building the missionaries want to use for the ministry as available for their use. I am thankful to be a part of a church that supports both of these missionaries. It was exciting to see what God is doing. I can’t wait to see all that God will do in the country of El Salvador.

On Thursday, Amy and I just took it easy by resting in the morning and having a late breakfast at Crazy Otto’s House of Omelette. Crazy Otto’s established a record by making the largest omelette ever which measured 1,850.9 feet! You can tell by the portions they serve. 

We got home that evening and were thankful for the safety God gave us and the lessons He taught us along the way.

It’s always good to come back to Lancaster Baptist Church where I received my desert training.
