Mission Commission calls Anabaptists to urgency in mission

In recent years, Anabaptists have been identified by such distinctives as peacemaking, voluntary choice, simple living, community and discipleship. We believe, however, that a key defining characteristic of the early Anabaptist movement was its fervent embrace of mission.

Healing by the Spirit

Some years ago, there was a week-long evening revival conference, which meant the entire church compound was full of people. Tesfa arrived a little late, and by then even the outside tents were full, so he squeezed into one, standing on the side.

Fwd: Thanksgiving greetings

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Thanksgiving greetings
To: "Marty Sollenberger (Marty Sollenberger)" <>

This Thanksgiving we have much to be thankful for. We are especially grateful for you and your partnership in our ministry with Wycliffe Bible Translators. It is such a blessing to serve with Wycliffe, knowing that together we are making a difference in the lives of Bibleless people around the world. But we couldn't do it without you, our financial and prayer partners and interested friends. Thank you so much!

This Thanksgiving, we take time to be thankful to God for His blessings in our lives. Perhaps the greatest blessing is having a Bible in our language. Through it, we can read words of comfort for our darkest times. We can learn of God's love for us when He sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins. And we can grow in our relationship with God as He reveals Himself through His Word.  In the midst of our busy schedules, we pause to spend time with Him and tell Him how grateful we are.

May God bless you and your families. Happy Thanksgiving!

Yours in Christ,

Marty and Glenna Sollenberger
