任务 Chair

I did not come to 澳门网上赌城网址大全 after 18 years in missions because I was tired 和 wanted to come “home.” No, I would love to still be serving in any part of the world! But there is a great need to see the next generation prepared 和 trained to carry out The Mission. I desire that my efforts as a missionary be greatly multiplied through many graduates who endeavor to make disciples of all nations.
