November 9th - Orlando Baptist Church

Orlando Baptist Church has the privilege of hosting the November 9th Florida BBFI meeting here in the state and we are very excited about it!  Our theme is "We Do Missions-Together. That's why they call it The Great Co-mission."  Our prayer is we will come with hope and leave with greater vision and faith to reach our world together. 

In trying to gather what would make this a great day, we want to give a lot of information and encouragement to all our pastors.  Would you send me anything on missions that has worked for you at your church?  From mission's brochures, mission's conference information, any resource ideas or any particular endeavor you have done that has made missions become a centerpiece is what we want. Could you send a short story or send us any printed materials you have?  We are going to try to make a resource table available from all the churches that will participate with us.  I believe this will be something special.

Please invite any missionaries from your church that are raising support. This will be a good day for all our pastors to meet missionaries from our state that are going around the world with the gospel.  Tell them to bring their mission displays and we will have tables for them so they can set up the displays for people to see. 

We are particularly interested in the missionaries that are going out as BBFI missionaries.  This will be a good time for them to get exposure to our BBFI pastors. 

Our schedule will have a little more in it than some of the more recent meetings.  I hope you will come at the beginning and stay till the end.
