BTJ just spent a few days in closed-door meetings with missionaries from around the world, being inspired by the work of God’s people working with remote tribes.
BTJ, along with Heidi Baker of Iris Ministries, and David Hogan of Freedom Ministries, were guest speakers at a private conference hosted by Alabaster Group. Alabaster Group is made up of college-age believers who primarily minister on the campuses of ‘Ivy League’ universities and they have been dear friends of BTJ for several years.
This year, for the first time, missionaries working together with BTJ as well as with Iris Ministries and Freedom Ministries, were able to attend a closed-door conference to be refreshed, renewed, and encouraged as they serve in the most remote areas on earth.
This meeting was a great way for missionaries, who often serve in isolation, to remember that they are not alone. “I have loved being here,” said Barbara White after the first two days of the conference. Barbara has been serving in northern Iraq for several years and spends most days laboring alone, serving the needs of her community with the love of Jesus Christ.
“I came here in a wheelchair because of problems in my hip,” Barbara said, pointing to her right hipbone, “but after being prayed for at the conference, I have been up and walking around without the need of my wheelchair!”
Alabaster Group generously sponsored all of the attending missionaries and their families to spend a week at a beach resort, as a service to those who have given their lives to spread the Gospel in the most closed areas of the world. You can learn more about this amazing group by clicking here.
