|“Welcome to the IM family” was a common greeting I heard when I was out at International Ministries offices in Valley Forge, PA in June for my Endorsement Orientation. Every time I heard those words a big smile would stretch across my face and my heart was filled with joy and gratitude! I am proud to be officially welcomed into the International Ministries family as a Global Servant to Bolivia.
That warm welcomed continued at the Mission Summit Biennial in Portland, OR. It was my first American Baptist conference as a newly Endorsed Global Servant and I was thrilled to be there! I had a wonderful time of reconnecting with American Baptist friends, colleagues, and meeting new ones.
Due to the amazing warm welcome that I received from the greater American Baptist family, I want to extend the warm welcome to my Mission Partnership Team. These individuals have committed to be my people and will help me build my Mission Partnership Network. We will be working over the next year to welcome more people and churches into partnering in ministry with me through prayer and giving.
Welcome to the IM family: Emily, Sarah, Betty, Kacie, MJ, Carolyn, and Mom!
