The Intermountain NMI Convention


The Intermountain NMI Convention  was in Nampa Idaho at College Church.  We enjoyed attending and seeing so many Idaho friends and fellow missionaries past and present from many parts of the world.

We were privileged to listen to Harmon and Cindy Schmelzenbach and their son Quinton share about their ministry on the Asia Pacific District.

They had some fun having Quinton answer the question in Pidgin with his father Harmon translating (and adding a few more details as needed).

Many young people raised their hands to indicate that they had felt the call to full time ministry, including missions.  They had a special time of prayer for them with several different ones praying for the different age groups represented.  It was very moving.

We were excited to see so many churches that had paid their WEF and over for the past 10 years!  And some churches had paid way over 150%.   That is so awesome!  And we know that it is the WEF support that helps keep the missionaries and programs operating on the field. We are excited to return to the field from the Intermountain District. And look forward to the continued support of such a great district.
