Tomorrow I leave for a special gathering of partners in our ministry we call our Cru Briefing. We began preparations for this meeting a year ago when we flew up there to learn all we could about this wonderful place and give us ideas how we talk about this being a perfect place to meet with God and hear of some of His work around the world. These special people are just like You. Our theme for these four days in Québec Canada is "Gospel Champion". Through careful study of God's words, we know of critical roles of pastor, teacher, elder, deacon etc. in God's economy, but there has also been an ever-present role of the Gospel Champion. This follower of Jesus takes the gifts God has given them: time, skills, leadership and material resources and blesses others with them furthering the gospel. One example of this is the women in Luke 8:1-3. To tell this story we made a 3-minute video. I hope you will take a moment and watch it, and for you that come alongside Lisa and me in this mission of helping to fulfill the Great Commission, you are our Gospel Champions and you are furthering this good news and enabling disciples to be made in all nations.
