Happy Thanksgiving! I trust you will take time today to thank God for His many blessings.
This afternoon, Wendy and I leave for a three week mission trip to Asia. We will be leading a team from Evangel consisting of Pastor Don McMillan, Debbie McMillan, Elaine Dyment, Esther Chua, Ron Egert, Wendy and myself.
We will be travelling to Nepal and Thailand. In Nepal we will be holding a conference for pastors and Christian leaders. These pastors are coming from Tibet, Nepal and Northeast India. We are expecting 150-200 pastors to attend this three day conference. In Thailand we will lead a camp for Christian leaders, missionaries and their families, anticipating that 300 people will attend.
We would appreciate your prayers and financial support. Needed is $12,000 to bring these pastors and Christian leaders to the events. Most of them could never afford to attend this kind of training without our help. At the conclusion of the service today, you will have an opportunity to contribute toward this project. Any gift would be greatly appreciated.
While we are gone, our excellent pastoral staff will be giving leadership to the church. We are so thankful for each of them and know that they will have your full support.
We love you all,
Lead Pastor Will Sohnchen
