This note was sent from my pastor, Rev. Brent Carter, to the other ministers of the Atlantic District, on Friday, January 10th, 2013. I have his permission to share it in here as well.
Good Afternoon Brethren,
The Lord has opened the door for Bro. and Sis Long, and their family, to be involved in AIM in the country of France. Bro. Long has felt the burden for a number of years and under our direction as Pastor, we support fully their desire to see this come to pass.
During our vision service for 2014 and beyond, this past Sunday, Bro. Long announced to our congregation what we, as a team, have worked towards for their future. This will be a great loss for Mission Point but a great blessing to the Missionaries of France. Their primary purpose will be to take care of things while the Bro. and Sis. Brochu are on deputation.
All approvals have been given by WEC and the budget has been set. The timeline for the Long’s to be in France would be by January 2015. Bro. and Sis. Long are fully versed in the Language and are very capable of accomplishing what God has laid on their heart to do, immediately upon their arrival.
Mission Point will be very involved in helping them financially fulfill this term. If any individuals could assist them financially or if any church would be willing for them to come and share their burden for France, it would be much appreciated as well.
You can either contact myself or Bro. Long by phone or email (633-0010, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ) to schedule a service, or, a donation can be sent to the church on their behalf.
Thank You for being an incredible Missions minded District. I thank you in advance for your sacrifice towards this awesome family. They are a wonderful couple and have three awesome children.
Pastor B Carter
I can honestly say that this note is very representative of the level of support that I have received from Bro. Carter from the time we began working together, in September 2012.
As I’ve already written a post on the importance of your spouse being on board with the vision that God gives you, I urge you to take a look at another post:
