Urbana Missions Conference 2015
From December 26-January 1, Becca and I were filled up through the spiritually rich time at Urbana.  We served with our SIM family and the diverse and beautiful Body of Christ from all around the world.

Although we were able to attend the main sessions, most of our time was in the SIM booth processing and praying with many students who the Lord was calling to Himself and into global mission.  The days were long and exhausting but the Lord really used this time to call hundreds into mission.  Praise God for calling workers into the harvest!

Urbana 2015
Wonderful day of encouragement
On January 4th, I (Luke) preached the Sunday morning sermon at Grace Fellowship Church in Jackson, CA.  After the service, we had an incredibly encouraging time with over 100 of our closest friends and supporters from many churches at a send-off lunch. Thank you to all of you who came out for that day!  If you are interested in listening to the sermon, email me and we can get you the link.

Colossians 2:13-15
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
