The hottest ticket of the night Monday was the International Mission Board’s (IMB) dinner for 1,350 people at the Phoenix Convention Center.
David Platt, president of the International Mission Board, spoke at the June 12 standing room only event.
Quoting Anne Judson: When a pastor feels impassioned for the heathen, their parishioners share that passion.
Platt also shared:
We need to be impassioned for the lost as if their salvation depends on no one else than us.
Before you lay down your head on your pillow tonight, will you kneel and ask the Lord, do you want me to go to the nations?
We have been in decline for years in the sending of missionaries. We are set right now to turn that tide.
-Mark Emerson from Phoenix
