LMRs Respond to the LMR Rally and Celebration

Good morning, Judy,

I hope you are happy about the success of the Local Missions Representative Conference.

Some words that I could use to describe the Local Missions Representative Conference are: outstanding, exceptional, first-rate, marvelous, and extraordinary. But, really, the conference surpassed words of description. The presentations were very insightful, the booths were informative, and the conference was well-organized.

I’m confident that the World Missions department will reap many benefits for the conference.

Dear Judy,

I hope you're enjoying some well-deserved rest after having really outdone yourself with all your preparations for this past weekend's LMR rally. We just wanted to thank you for all the effort you put into it and to let you know what a blessing it was for us. (To quote Steffen: You did "an awesome job"!)

We appreciated having the opportunity to attend and were really impressed by how smoothly everything seemed to go (particularly the timeliness of the transitions between the many speakers who offered a wealth of practical information). I'm confident that it was a really beneficial event for the LMRs, and hopefully World Missions will see the positive results of it very soon.

Have a lovely week!

Dear Judy,

Hello, My name is Ruth Osborne and I had the privilege to attend the LMR Rally. I just wanted you to know that I had a great time. My pastor tell us often that we need to celebrate people when they visit our church. I have to tell you that I felt celebrated when I left Cleveland on Saturday evening. The rally was very informative and educational. I have had it on my mind to write and tell you how much I appreciate all the work you and your staff put into it. Thank you so much and I look forward to attending again.

It has been a little over two weeks and I am just getting back from our travels. However, I haven't forgotten about our time spent in Cleveland! It was great meeting you and everyone in Cleveland. Congratulations and thank you; the LMR conference was fantastic.

I appreciate all of your efforts in organizing such a great conference and helping my wife and I feel so comfortable. I will be speaking with Pastor Chris Fraley in the coming week and look forward to speaking with you about organizing a local World Missions conference here in New Jersey.

Thanks again and God Bless you!

Dr. Leroy, Judy and entire World Missions staff:

I just want to take the time to let you know how much I (we) appreciated all the hours of planning, coordinating, calling, e-mailing, and confirming you all gave for the LMR Rally.

I know Judy is the LMR Consultant, and when God impressed upon you all, in these last days, that His heart is for the souls of this world, you responded and went to work. God is always looking for sensitive and responsive servants who will act on the Lord’s direction in obedience…and you did. Thank you!

My prayer now is that we (the LMRs), have seen, heard, and experienced God’s heart for souls. I pray that we are obedient to the promptings to work hard for our missionaries.

I Chronicles 4:23 says that some were the potters, and some dwelt with the plants and hedges and that they dwelt with the King for His work. We dwell anywhere and everywhere and I pray, like you, that the Father will count me among the faithful souls.

May God continue to lead and bless you until He comes!
