Denominational Conventions serve different purposes for different people. There are those who attend in order to demonstrate support. Others attend in hopes of a nomination to an office – repeatedly. Nearly everyone attends to renew old friendships. This year was no differrent. I had not seen Randy and share a meal in quite some time. It had been almost a year since sharing fellowship with Jeff. However, I had no idea David would be in attendance.
David is a missionary in Turkey. We have not seen each other in at least ten years. We spent a year in seminary together and then ran into one another at another seminary a year or so later. I finished with Seminary officially eleven years ago. I hope to take a mission trip to share the gospel as David does to a surprisingly receptive people. A people who have told him, “We need 1000’s of Jesus’ in our country.”
What a statement? You know, we could use 1000’s of Jesus’ in our Country. Would be good if we would do a better job of emulation so he can be seen.
