Tonight Vision Baptist Church commissioned Mark and Natasha to be missionaries to be missionaries to China. They will be going directly out of our church as their sending and mission’s agency.
They are beginning full time deputation as of today. We are to pray that God will raise up their support soon.
Our ladies gathered around Natasha and laid hands on her. My wife, Betty, let in prayer for Natasha on behalf of our ladies.
The men gathered around Mark and Sam Paxin led in prayer on behalf of our church and the men of Vision. It was a wonderfully sweet time and I closed in prayer!
Chris Gardner, our own missionary to Peru, brought a short message to challenge and encourage the church and the Tolsons.
Missionary Tony Howeth also brought a great challenge for Mark especially but for the whole church.
Mark and Natasha are wonderful friends and we thank God for them. I thank you for the good offering you gave them and for your prayers.
Thank God for all He does in our church and making it so very special. Our church is a very unusual missionary sending church. God bless you all and thank you!
