Celebrating 10 Years!
On Tuesday, Nov. 5, Mission Barnabas hosted its yearly banquet. For those who were unable to attend, we wanted to share with you some of the great things that have happened and are happening through MB in E .Africa.
One of the first things we shared was to sincerely thank each and every person that has been a part of making this vision happen. We are so grateful to God and to each of you. To everyone that has encouraged us, prayed for us, laughed and cried with us, given resources, given money….ASANTE SANA!!!! We could not have done this without you and when you look at the report of what has been accomplished, know that it is what WE (all of us) have done. May the Lord enlarge the borders of your tent and return to you 100 fold of your investment in Africa.
This banquet was special as we were celebrating 10 years of ministry in Africa. When you see the numbers from the last 10 years, you will say, “Look what the Lord has done”. When you watch the video of the journey of 4 pastors that have never been to CMM, leave their homes and churches and travel and experience CMM for the first time, you will be inspired. When you realize that this same journey has happened to thousands of pastors and leaders over the last 10 years you will say, “Look what the Lord is doing”. When you see what is in store for the future, you will say, “Look what the Lord is about to do”.
Please take a minute to view this slideshow that shows you the totals of what has been accomplished in the past 10 years. Then watch the video that takes you on a journey with 4 pastors….(it takes a few minutes to watch but it will lift your spirit). If you missed the banquet and want to pledge for 2014 or give a donation to MB, just visit the website or send your gift to our mailing address. We are in the process of setting our 2014 budget and projects and that is determined by pledges and giving at this time.
We will be sharing in a later update some of the projects that are coming next. We will also be introducing you to a new sponsorship program to help pastors attend a conference. This week starts the next 10 years and we are so blessed to have you on the journey with us. Just wait until we have the next 10 years celebration!
