On Oct.28 to Nov.1 some of us attended ICOM, the missionary conference. One of the things I enjoy about that conference is the fact you get to know so many missions throughout the world. You get a glimpse of what God is doing in other parts of the globe. That conference is only possible due to the generosity of churches all over USA. I was encouraged this year when I saw churches in the Richmond area that came together to fund church planting. There were about 4 churches, during the conference, checks were given to those to go plant a church. The goal of the offering that weekend was $ 60, 000. Someone in the conference committed himself to give $30, 000 if they reached the goal. The next day this was reached. I was amazed at the generosity displayed there. Have you ever wondered what motivates people to be so generous?
