Missions Ministry Update February 2020

The Mission Committee recently voted to add three missionaries to Crossgate’s monthly support. Beginning this year, we will add monthly support to Ted and Christine Edwards who work through Valor, an outreach of CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) that reaches out to the military community; Jim Moon, who works with Church Multiplication Ministries in Cuba and around the world; and Ben and Becca Johnson, missionaries in Thailand. All three of these missionaries have direct links to Crossgate. The Edwards are regular attenders at Crossgate who have been great additions to our church. Jim serves as our link to Los Pinos Nuevos in Cuba and preached at our Missions Conference a couple of years ago. Finally, Ben visited Crossgate’s Missions Conference with Boonchu on his last visit and, among other things, serves as a liaison between Crossgate and Boonchu. 
Remember that Crossgate’s annual Missions Conference is coming up on March 14th & 15th. Our conference this year will focus on God’s work in the Muslim world and will have opportunities for involvement on Saturday morning with a work project/fellowship, Saturday afternoon/evening at the missions banquet and Sunday morning for our mission service. Be praying about your Faith Promise commitment as God continues to bless Crossgate through missionaries carrying out the Great Commission around the globe. 
Please contact the mission lead for information.
