AAEO Week of Prayer
The week of prayer for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions begins this Sunday, March 3. In the last two editions of the Biblical Recorder, we published material that tells you how this offering is used to plant churches and reach the lost in North America, and we provided material to guide your prayers for our missionaries. Your church may opt to hold a week of prayer at a different time, but I hope all of our sister churches will give generously to this important offering. If you want a picture of North America’s spiritual bankruptcy, listen the discussions in Congress on whether a newborn child should be allowed to live. Incredible darkness surrounds us, demonstrating the great need for the light of the gospel.
Our state convention’s annual disciple-making conference was a great event this week! I attended Tuesday’s gathering at Green Street Baptist Church in High Point and enjoyed interacting with many of our friends and partners in the gospel from every corner of North Carolina. Liz Tablazon, the Biblical Recorder’s social media manager, also attended and engaged our followers on social media. We hope you followed her posts throughout the day.
Unofficial attendance was around 700, according to convention leadership. Attendees were very complimentary of the speakers, breakouts and members of Green Street who served us with excellence. Thank you, pastor Brandon Ware and your outstanding team, for blessing your Baptist sisters and brothers! Thank you, breakout speakers and convention staff, for providing this valuable training and spiritual growth experience!
Pray that all of our churches will work as a team to impact lostness in North Carolina.
