Folks, we know that any young person God calls to be a missionary has to be brave to follow through and go. But how about when you’re older and settled and you and your wife have three kids and one’s already a junior in high school? THEN, when you pick up and move halfway across the country to help start a new church — THEN you’re brave indeed.
And today we’re going to pray for Rob and Amy Burgess, because that’s what they did: Moved from Florida to Denver, Colorado, to help start a new church.
Although a move like that did not make much financial sense or general sense, both of them clearly understood that’s what God wanted them to do.
Rob and Amy are working with Ben Mandrell to get a new church called Storyline Fellowship up and running in a town called Arvada, which is really a suburb of Denver. It started in February of 2015 and already has some 500 people attending every Sunday.
Our church is partnering in this new church, because these missionaries are supported through our Cooperative Program giving.
We already know Rob, Amy and Ben are brave. Now, let’s pray that God will continue to multiply the members and the churches across the Mile High City through their ministries.
