Home assignment is always a busy time, but this home assignment was one for the record books for the Young Family. Maybe a statistical summary of our ministry in the USA, mid-February through mid-June of 2018, will help paint the picture?
This Home Assignment we shared about the work of the Church of the Nazarene in Timor-Leste in 42 services, in 9 different states (Ohio, Michigan, New Hampshire, Louisiana, New Mexico, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, and Florida). 4 of these services were Faith Promise services, special services that challenge people to make a sustaining faith commitment to support missions in the Church of the Nazarene financially. 5 of these services were zone rallies, a gathering together of Nazarene churches from different areas for one large missions service. In total, around 60 Nazarene churches participated in these 42 services. We drove around 14,000 miles, through 22 states and a small piece of Canada, to connect with the Nazarene church family that we love.
Thank you to everyone who invited us, loved and spoiled us along the way, and became financial partners with us. We are deeply grateful for our Nazarene family.
