The theme for our missions conference this year was “Give the Light,” taken from 2 Corinthians 4:6. “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” We were blessed to have two wonderful missionary families that have surrendered their lives to serve the Lord. The Raleigh Hill family is going to bring the Gospel to Argentina, and the Taylor Norris family is going to Mozambique to bring the Gospel there. Jesus gave the local, New Testament church the command to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Every nation needs a gospel witness! Cornerstone Baptist Church is endeavoring to keep the Lord’s command by doing our best to reach our community, and through our missions giving we are sending missionaries to other countries on our behalf to tell the good news that Jesus saves!
We had tremendous meetings each night as we sang, worshiped, and heard great preaching from the Word of God. Saturday, we ran a booth at the Goffstown Pumpkin Regatta in the center of town. What an opportunity to get out into our community and minister to people. We gave out hundreds of gospel tracts. We finished the conference on Sunday with great services and our International Banquet featuring food from around the world. When all was said and done, Cornerstone took on both missionary families for support both financially and prayerfully. May many souls come to Christ in Argentina and Mozambique! To God be the glory!
