How Can You Help Bring Life to the Desert?
You can pray… Please pray for God to continue to bless us with one new church each year. Also pray for the churches of the River Valley Mission Network to be effective in their ministry to the masses of people who live and play in our area. Pray for missionary Tommy Thomas and his family.
Tommy’s Life Scripture
We are “partners” together in the kingdom of God. When Jesus is in our “boat” setting the direction, miraculous things can happen. It’s time for us to stop “toiling” and start trusting. Where are the “deep waters” of your ministry? Knowing better ways to catch fish and having a vision for a great catch of souls is what it really means to be fishers of men!
