Russell Killingsworth and I just returned from Mozambique, Africa following an incredible ministry trip with Reaching Souls International. We were there for two weeks serving local pastors with training classes and enjoying incredible times of worship together. After the first week, we divided our pastor friends and those of us from America into four outreach teams and set out to utilize the training we had been doing in the classroom. Around 240 pastors and wives plus 30 Americans ventured into market places, schools and neighborhoods to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The results are amazing! We saw over 21,000 people come to faith in Jesus over a three day period! Even as I type this, I still shake my head in wonder. I never in my wildest imagination thought I would get to be a part of something like this. All the glory goes to God!

I am grateful to you, my church family, for allowing me to go and for praying for Russell and I as we were there serving. I am thankful for Travis for doing such a wonderful job preaching in my absence and for many who stepped up to cover bases that I normally would. The fact that you guys release me to do this kind of ministry speaks volumes about your heart for people to know Christ.

I am excited to tell you that you have a great opportunity to hear more about the exciting ministry that is Reaching Souls International. We are invited to a banquet September 19th, at the Amarillo Convention Center. You will get to meet Zambian pastors who serve as National Missionaries for Reaching Souls. You will hear the vision for ministry from RS leadership and you will enjoy fellowship with ohter people from around the Texas panhandle who have a heart for mission outreach. If you are interested in attending or want more information, call the FBC office and we'll register you online for the event.

One last thing: I want to encourage you to go out in the same boldness that we saw in our Mozambican brothers. If you want to know how you can share the gospel with the people you know, contact me.

I love this Church Family!

Pastor Mark
