For five days and four nights last week, over 80 WIM missionaries gathered from around the world in New Braunfels, TX, for the WIM International Conference. Although their locations and types of ministry vary greatly, they all had two things in common: joyful devotion to Jesus and faithful service with WIM. When these folks get together, it is like a big family reunion, proving that WIM’s core value for committed relationships is not just empty chatter.
This conference was the 7th of its kind since 1995. It was made possible by the power and provision of God through many generous people. Thank you! Want to know what your funds accomplished? Just read a few of these quotes from our blessed cross-cultural workers.
WOW! WOW! WOW! What a service we had tonight! The glory was so thick you could see it! The Holy Spirit touched many tonight in a powerful way through the word and worship. My back got completely healed and I danced and danced and danced some more until the sweat was rolling off me.

It never ceases to amaze me the way that God sets us up and how He loves me so much! This missions conference has been something I will never forget and I am so grateful that my Savior knows me so well and has put us with a group of people that love us and Him so much!!!

This conference is a much needed time of rest and [time] to connect with other missionaries that are a part of WIM. I think the most important and fun part of this trip is being able to pick the brains of other missionaries that have been doing it for 20, 30, or even 40 years.

Praise you, Jesus, for pouring your Spirit out at the WIM International Conference… I am coming back with so much more than I thought or imagined. Healed, refreshed, and a new sense of hope and passion for Jesus! Ready to move forward.

It was a great experience. Truly the most tragic aspect of the conference is that it only happens every three years. Until next time, friends, serve well and enjoy life in Jesus. See you at the 2016 International Conference!
