The beginning of a new year is always exciting, mainly because of the many potential things that can be accomplished for the Lord. My prayer is that there will be more souls saved and more churches planted in 2019 than ever before.
With those thoughts in mind, I would like to introduce you to BIMI’s theme for 2019—Moving Forward by Faith. As we look back over 2018, it is encouraging to see all that the Lord has accomplished through your faithful support of missions. Indeed, God has done many miraculous things. Reviewing the past inspires us for the future. The writer of Hebrews 11 encourages his readers to gain strength by considering the examples of men and women from the past who walked by faith. However, moving forward is one of the main emphases of the Book of Hebrews. Likewise, as we are encouraged by what God did in 2018, we must be Moving Forward by Faith to accomplish even more in 2019.
We are thankful that the Lord has allowed us to partner with you in worldwide evangelization. Your desire to support missions and to see souls saved around the world is very encouraging. It is my prayer that throughout this new year—and in the years to come—we will together move forward by faith. There is so much to do and time is extremely short.
Again, thank you for your partnership and for your desire to win the lost. It is wonderful to know that we glorify and please God as we move forward by faith to accomplish the Great Commission (John 15:8; Hebrews 11:6). May the LORD richly bless you!
