Thanks to Texas Baptists for giving the Christian Life Commission the opportunity to share about its ministries this week at the BGCT Annual Meeting. The CLC staff is proud to serve you day in, day out; it was especially rewarding to share about that work in this special setting.
A special word of thanks to Dennis Parrish, whom we contracted to produce our main stage and exhibit stage production. His design and production skills helped us greatly in presenting the ministries and impact of the CLC.
A.C. Miller, Foy Valentine, Jimmie Allen, James Dunn, Phil Strickland and Suzii Paynter established a tremendous direction for the Christian Life Commission, and we seek to continue in that great tradition.
We appreciate your continued prayers for the CLC staff - Jordan Corona, Marilyn Davis, Ferrell Foster, Kathryn Freeman, Joyce Gilbreath Kokel, Sandy Sirkel and Julie Valentine - as well as valued contract workers - Rob Kohler, Marshall Kenderdine, Lester Merriweather, Dr Jesus Romero and Elsa Romero.
Our desire is to follow the guidance of Micah 6:8, which says, "do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God."
