    WORLD OUTREACH GOALS
    • Present an up close look at the Religion of Islam – it’s followers and their need to know Jesus Christ as Savior and deliverance from darkness to light. More than 1 billion people on planet earth consider themselves followers of Islam. Between 5 & 6 million live in the USA We are hoping that as a result of this week some might be inclined in new ways to reach out to these people.

    • We are praying again for at least 60 individuals to participate in our short term mission programs in 2008.

    • We are trusting that many more in our congregation will make prayer for the people of the world and our missionary family and organizations a part of their daily routine.

    • We are asking the Lord to call some individuals from our congregation into career Christian ministry as a result of this conference.

    • $20,000 to be used to help meet the needs of our missionary family and our expanded missions outreach.

        1/3 will be given to (the hospital in Amman, Jordan)
        1/3 will be used to help meet the outgoing expenses for Craig and Mary Tress for their return to Australia.
        1/3 to help fund GBFC Short Term Missions Programs in 2008.

      Please ask God to show you what He wants you to do in accomplishing these goals.
