21ST ANNUAL FIRE INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS CONFERENCE!! We had a Holy Ghost time at our annual missions conference last month. With the Covid travel restrictions, many of our missionaries could not come from out of the country, but most of our domestic folks joined us and we have a few that have been stuck here in the States and could not return to their fields of ministry. So we still had an abundance of missionaries. Plus we were able to get video footage of a few of our overseas folks. The testimonies were amazing and the Lord really moved in the services. We upped our online presence as well and had folks around the world watching at different times. God was glorified which was definitely the point!!
As always it is good to visit with our missionaries and chat face to face. Having the opportunity to answer questions, speak encouragement, pray over them, release vision into their next season….all this is what we do. We always hope and pray that they will be encouraged and feel loved and part of the family. We even had a couple of new folks come this time and they did tell us they felt welcomed and they felt the family feel. That is what we want to hear!!
SURPRISE! WE ARE GOING TO HAWAII!!! We had mentioned that we were hoping to go to Hawaii to teach at the Ekballo school run by Rod and Marion Hall who are former FI missionaries. We had basically given up hope because of the travel restrictions. However, the door opened. The Lord sent the money. Now, tickets are in hand! We just have to get our Covid tests which will be negative and get on the plane!! We will be flying out on November 9 and returning on Nov 17. Please pray for an easy trip, that all connections will go smoothly, and all will be well with the necessary Covid tests. Josh will be teaching his Holy Ghost class in 12 hours instead of the normal 32!! Pray for him!! We will also meet a couple from the school who just joined FI! The goal is to share with the grads about FI and hopefully gain a few more missionaries.
Also please keep our next trip in prayer as well. We are planning on heading to Cameroon, Africa to help kick off a major evangelistic thrust in the nation. Already 500-600 leaders are planning to attend. We need good tickets and easy flights!!!
WE ARE THANKFUL FOR YOU!! We are ALWAYS thankful for you, our supporters and friends, but at Thanksgiving you are brought to mind as one of the things we are most thankful for. We do not take your faithful prayer and financial support for granted. God has used you to take the gospel to the nations! Thank you!!! Thank you!! Thank you!!! The words are so inadequate to express what our hearts feel for you. You are loved!!
Love in Jesus,
Josh & Tobi
