“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.” ~Philippians 1:3-5
The end of February and beginning of March has been such a rich time of blessing for Not Forgotten! We had the immeasurable privilege of attending two nearby missions conferences: Shades Mountain Baptist Church’s “Global Impact Celebration” in Birmingham, Alabama and First Bible Church’s missions conference in Decatur, Alabama. Both of these churches have been wonderful partners for us over the years and we are extremely grateful to them for their continuous support and encouragement. It is such an honor to be able to share the story of Not Forgotten and the journey on which the Lord has us… not only with individuals who stop by our booth, but also congregations, Sunday school classes, and small groups of people who are attentive, moved by, and excited about all God is doing in and through NF.
Additionally, WHAT A JOY for us to learn from and fellowship with other missionaries, to be poured into by these precious bodies of believers, to feel rejuvenated in our calling, to be reminded of God’s faithfulness and provision, and to receive love and encouragement beyond belief! We are filled to the brim and ready to pour out again – largely due to the faithfulness and community found in these fellow laborers for the sake of the Gospel, who are passionate about telling others – next door and around the world – about Jesus Christ. These two churches sure know how to love on some missionaries and they do it selflessly and so very well. From the bottom of our full hearts and the depths of our refreshed spirits, we tell you, SMBC, and you, FBC, two little words that fall very short, but we mean sincerely: THANK YOU. Not Forgotten loves you dearly.
