Global Ministries Sunday

As we celebrated Global Ministries Sunday at the church, it was such a treat to have our Missionary to Lesotho Mark Behle as our guest preacher.

For nearly 30 years Mark has served as a Global Ministries Missionary throughout Africa. He is presently serving in the Planning Office of the Lesotho Evangelical Church, one of the oldest Protestant Denominations in Africa, and a proud Global Ministries Partner Organization. 

Mark shared a series of stories (what he called "Ebenezer Moments", taking after 1 Samuel 7:1-13) about the faith and faithfulness of our brothers and sisters in Christ the whole world over. 

You can listen to his full sermon on the church's website by clicking here.

In the Fellowship Hall, Kay Jones displayed a gorgeous lace tablecloth that had been loving knit for her many years ago by Dr. Gene Johnson -- a long time friend and one of our Global Ministries Missionaries. 

On the center of the table Kay included this note: 
The maker of this beautiful tablecloth was Dr. Gene Johnson,
who along with his wife Sue spent several
years as Missionaries in the Belgian Congo.

Gene and Sue were presented an award of
affirmation at the Global Ministries Dinner
held during the 2013 General Assembly.

Gene crochets during meetings. 

After the worship service a small group of us took Mark Behle to lunch were we learned more about Lesotho, Mark's own personal "Ebenezer Moments," and the ways that we at FCC Scottsdale can further support the good work of Global Ministries!
