Here is a picture of the Home Missions Board meeting in December, 2010.
These men take time out of their busy schedule to serve for no pay. They have a heart for starting new churches and for the home missionary families. Thank you, Board members!

I'm thankful to work on the same team with all these good people on the Home Missions staff. They do a great job, work hard, and love home missions.
I'm also thankful for all the home missionary families. They are salt of the earth Christians trying to shine their light in dark places.
From all of us on the Board and Staff, we hope for you a happy time with your family and friends over the Christmas holidays!
We pray for God's blessings and direction for you for 2011.
