We have been in Argentina for almost eight months. We love it here. I have been asked a few times what I miss most in the states. Obviously we miss family and friends. Thanksgiving is this Thursday and I am sure we will miss the traditions we have been a part of all of our lives. There are other events that we miss as well. One of the greatest is the annual Summit we have in December. This year the Summit is going to be in a new location, Lanier Islands north of Atlanta. There will be missionaries who are currently serving in Nepal, South Africa, Peru, Tunisia, China, and the United Kingdom! There are also missionaries on deputation who are on there way to Burkina Faso, Turkey, China, Colombia, Indonesia, India, China, Bosnia, South Africa, Chile, Japan, and Argentina! This is going to be a great conference! The dates are December 29-31, 2016. For more information, click this link to VisionMissions.com.
So, what makes the Summit so special? The missions emphasis makes it very different, the time of year is a special time of year, but in my opinion the Summit is so special because during the times between the sessions and services, you are able to spend time with the missionaries. I have been to many good camps, conferences, and retreats. When the services are over, we normally don’t get to spend real time with the preachers. The Summit is a place where you can talk to the missionaries, spend time with them, ask them real questions, and become friends! I encourage you to go to the Summit. I encourage you to take your youth group to the Summit. I believe you will be glad you did!
