We've been invited to a Missions Conference

Postby ccgr » Tue Jan 26, 2016 5:01 pm

We've been invited to the International Missions Conference in Dallas Texas that's taking place from May 20-22 this year! They want us to prove that Christianity is not about boredom and asked us to enlighten their youth participants about opportunities and values in Christian games and video games in general. We'd love to answer the call, but need to secure plane, hotel, and rental car accommodations. Please pray that we can get funded to go if it's God's will for us to be there. Thanks!

That's awesome! I sure hope you do get to make it, keep us updated!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Don't mind if I do speak into this situation some words of faith and confidence:
Destiny awaits! Go! Clear up that confusion!
Destroy Satan's plan of ignorance!
Weeeeeeee!

If God is my Pilot and fully in control of the flight, I guess that makes me a Steward on the plane. How may I serve you?

I'm still waiting to hear back details on if they need me there the whole time or just one day or whatnaot but if I need to be there the whole day I'm guessing $650 for airfare, hotel, and rental car

The gofundme has $50 raised so far which is good. Again I don't know how long I'll be needed there but if I'm not required to be there the whole time it'll be cheaper. This will be good experience and if we're in demand enough to do speaking engagements perhaps I'll be paid to go at future events. Then again I still have to figure out the details and see if there is any help from them coming. We'll see, we're still in the early stages and I'm seeking God's will and I figure if He wants there, the way will be paved for us.

I'm honestly getting a few goosebumps!
I love watching God at work, it's so...
**ponders a moment**
...It's so Amazing!
(NOT going on about lack of funds and how I wish I could help mainly because I can still pray!)

Spoke a little bit more with the conference planner and they will discuss covering some of the expenses so we'll see how that goes. Saturday is probably the main day I'll be there so I revised the travel plans to arrive on Friday morning and check out the conference in the afternoon and leave Sunday morning. With tentative plans came to roughly $457 and round up to $500 for budget meals and we're $150 less than originally anticipated! :)
