Atlanta CPA Presents Major Tenants of Mission Work, While Calling on God for Miracles...Taking Christianity Into the World
I appreciate all of the hard work that you do to support the work of God throughout the world. We have been honored to serve Jesus Christ for the last five years in the desert of New Mexico as we serve our native Americans, the Navajo. As a Family Mission Trip I have watched families of one and families of many call on the power of Christ to change and redeem the lives of those we serve with and those we serve. When our family was first asked to lead this trip, we immediately began praying the prayer of Jabez and that God might allow us to have a dramatic impact on the reservation and in the heart and lives of the Navajo.
Be Bold In Your Faith: Call on God for Miracles
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request. 1 Chronicles 4:10
