<<First Name>>, Jesus Wants You!

by Doug Bing, Washington Conference president

He is pointing at you.

Most of us have at one time or another seen the famous poster of the mythical Uncle Sam dressed in red, white, and blue with his top hat. He has his index finger pointing directly at you with the caption, “I Want You.”

It was a call to action during a crisis. However, the call for all to be involved is much older than the posters of the world wars. It is much older than the social media and TV advertisements for everyone to wear a mask and wash your hands in a pandemic.

Jesus gave that call centuries ago when the great commission was given in Matthew 28:19 when he told the early church to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations. . ."

He also showed how this is to be done in Mark 6:7—“And He called the twelve to Himself and began to send them out two by two and gave them power over unclean spirits.”

There are three parts to this verse...that apply then and now!

Every year Spanish Women's Ministries comes together for a time of spiritual renewal and sisterhood. This is typically coordinated by Jackie Cilio. But this year, Jackie's health is preventing her from planning this highlight of the year. Plus: in-person gatherings are limited right now.
So Esther Jeronimo is planning a virtual retreat in Jackie's place. Please help Esther spread the word!
Este retiro ocurre cada año, organizado por el Ministerio de Damas de la Conferencia de Washington, esta vez será de forma virtual y gratuito para poder alcanzar más damas para este evento que será de una gran bendición.
