Mission is always important, but May is that time of year when we traditionally focus on mission in a special way. To kick things off on the first Sunday in May, we will have a Celebration Service, all together with a Missions focus. On that week we’ll be hearing from some within our church community who are involved in exciting, diverse mission opportunities. As the month progresses, we’ll also be hearing about Muana and Villy, the GiA missionaries we support in Northern Thailand; and from David Halder about the HELP children’s home in Bangladesh; from Shayne Hamilton and Jenny Haines about the ‘Power to Change’ ministry in local schools; and from Michelle Dorey and Edgar Voigt about the invaluable work of Missionary Aviation Fellowship (MAF). God’s love is big, and we can expect to be both encouraged as we hear about the many different ways he is at work in his world, but also challenged as we consider his call on each of us to be participants in his mission of love to the world.
