Mini Missions School 2010

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Mt 28:18-20

The second annual Mini Mission School was hosted again at Porto Astro the last weekend of September. We enjoyed warm fellowship as were challenged to live lives in obedience to the Great Commission and to the call of God.

It was a time of equipping, where we learned about Animism and Islam and how to communicate with people in New Age for the sake of the Gospel.

It was a time of learning from experienced people who have followed the call of God and have gone before us to the ends of the earth.

It was a time of enjoying Indian, Egyptian, an Indonesian food, just as a sampling of the many different culinary delights of the world.

In the end, as we let the Lord touch our hearts and as we were encouraged to live for Him, these things together made this event worth it’s time and effort.

Greek participant highlights:

Among the 23 attendees, three pregnant women praying for God to touch the lives of their unborn babies to have a part in world missions.

Popi - I would have not missed it for the world even though I was coming
down with the flue/cold and had lost my voice. God spoke to my heart and
touched my spirit.

Irini - I must take the overnight bus to Xanthi and will work straight away
in a coffee shop - but never mind. It was a life changing experience and
worth all the costs.

Christos and Ilias- it was a great time of spiritual refreshment, just what I needed to refresh me in spirit, body and soul.

  1. WONDERFUL. Unspeakable joy overflows in my spirit when I saw the above message. Hallelu Yah. God is good all the time. He is our Creator. ^&^ May the Lord release grace and mercy to those babies to participate into world mission. May The Holy One of Israel covers them directly from heaven. In Christ Jesus name, amen!
