Walking With Jesus in Soul Winning
Introduction: In verses 12 to 25, we see Jesus starting His earthly ministry. Christ established His church with the calling of the twelve. With that, they were also given their job descriptions, what they were to do. The 4 Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John) are also known as the synoptic Gospels – meaning telling one story from different angles.

Our Missionaries

April 10, 2009

schottrichardsmallI will forever be grateful for the ministry of Rev. & Mrs. Richard Schott.

I do not wish to exalt the man nor ascribe glory to him because the Lord alone deserves our attention and our praise. The Bible does say to “give honour to whom it is due” and I would like to “give honour” to a Missionary, MY Missionary, OUR Missionary, Rev. Richard Schott.
