July is “missions” month.  But not your typical, historical expressions of missions… well, some will be.  This month, each week we will hear from various mission agencies or directors. These will be ministries that are close to home to far away middle east.    Not only is this month an opportunity to have our understanding enlarged, but to also realize that there are benefits for us as a church and as Followers of Christ for connecting into missions.  There is more in store for us that we often realize.  Prepare to be rewarded.
