experience missions 2012 - Area residents get chance to share with missionaries

 

 

 

 

Approximately 400 people from across the High Plains and West Texas took advantage of the opportunity to meet and learn from missionaries Saturday as Wayland Baptist University hosted ExperienceMission 2012. The event, which was co-sponsored and supported by area churches, brought missionaries and aid organizations from around the world to Plainview for a day-long conference on addressing the Biblical Great Commission, as given in Matthew 28: 18-20 (NKJV): “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ ”

Throughout the day, participants were able to learn about organizations such as Mission Arlington, the Christian Women’s Job Corps, Go Now Missions and the Hale County Literacy Council. They got the chance to hear stories from and visit with missionaries from places as diverse as New York City and China.
