Yesterday.February 12, 2012, we visited with Grace Baptist Church, Lewisville, Texas. This day was the final day of the annual missions conference which Pastor John Gillespie conducted. The theme was “From the Cross,Through the Church, To the World.” There were four missionary families present, and they were lavished with love gifts from the congregation. In the final service, Pastor Gillespie asked the congregation to place their new faith promise cards in a glass globe on the remembrance table at the front of the church. The congregation promptly lined up to participate. Even children made commitments. The faith promise totaled $102,661.00. This amount is $8,000 over last year’s giving to missions. Grace Baptist Church supports seven GIBM missionaries.
