To Every Tribe

Last night our church had the privilege of hosting David Sitton and Rod Conner from To Every Tribe Ministries. Sitton is the President of this missions organization. What a blessing! You may link to the ministry web page here.

Their ministry efforts focus on several locations in Mexico as well as New Guinea. They target tribes and people groups that are unreached. These are people who have never heard the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. The primary core value of To Every Tribe is God's glory.

I have known Rod Conner for over 30 years, no joke. (You didn't realize I was so, mature.) He was our youth pastor at Randolph Street Baptist Church in Charleston, WV. It was such a joy to spend the evening with him and see his heart for missions, his desire to reach the lost and to make an eternal impact in the lives of the unreached. Please join me in praying for this ministry. Take a moment to visit their web page. It is clear, God is doing a mighty work among tribal people in a land far away from where we live comfortable lives. The gospel is at work. Pagans who formerly worshiped "spirits" and lived violent, evil lives are being born into the family of God. I was just as lost without Christ, how gracious our God is! The magnitude of this work is often lost on us.

"It is too small a thing that you should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make You a light to the nations so that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth." Isaiah 49:6
