Missionary Moment

Last week I was blessed to be able to travel to the St. Louis area with my oldest son to attend the Southern Baptist Founders' Conference Midwest. In addition to a wonderful time of teaching/preaching and fellowship with old friends, we also had the blessing of making some new friends.

Michael and Erin Pfleegor and their family currently attend Rockport Baptist in Arnold, where the eminent preacher and theologian Scott Lee is pastor (I hope he likes that description!). But their presence there is temporary, as the church is sending them out in Christ's name to reach the lost in Suriname.

Interestingly enough, when I went to their family blog I read of a recent trip in which they happened to meet fellow blogger Jon Cardwell, author of Christ and Him Crucified. Small world!

Anyway, it was a real treat to meet this godly family and hear about their passion for Christ's work. I've already shared their ministry plans with some in our church in hopes that we might be able to partner with them in some way.

If you're looking for a way to be involved in a missionary endeavor, I'd encourage you to visit their blog, check out their plans, and pray about the possibility of joining with them as well. Maybe I should have asked Bro. Michael before sending out this "plea" on his behalf, but hopefully he won't mind.

God's great desire is for His name to made great among the nations, and any chance we have to be a part of seeing that happen, we ought to grab it. At the very least, let's remember to keep ever in prayer those who are serving here, there and everywhere. SDG!
