From Thursday through Sunday Mike and Erin attended the MTW Global Missions Conference in Dallas, TX. This once every three-years event attracted over 2,000 attendees. The keynote speakers were Kevin DeYoung and Dr. Michael Oh. There were 91 exhibitor booths and 95 breakout seminars. This was a great opportunity to recruit missionaries, learn about missions, and talk about missions.
Both Mike and Erin were very active at this conference. Erin spoke in three breakout sessions: Women in Missions, Medical Missions, and Global Disaster Response. Mike spoke in four breakout sessions: The Benefit of Short-Term Teams, Safety and Suffering in Missions, Missions in Scripture, and a briefing on the new Hubs.
This was such an amazing event. There were so many opportunities to promote missions, recruit new missionaries and talk about what God is doing through the West Coast Hub.
