FROM CRCNA’S RESONATE GLOBAL MISSION
“Thank you for your faithful support for God’s mission!
“As we consider the end of 2022 & the beginning of 2023, I’m reminded of Jesus’ words from Acts 1:8, ‘But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’ Thank you for taking those words to heart & living out your faith.
“Jesus’ words came at a time of transition—it was the end of Jesus’ ministry on earth, but only the beginning for his disciples. Here we have Jesus’ promise to send the Spirit & also our instructions to live out his mission! Those instructions are for us too and Resonate is here to continue partnering with you as you join God’s mission in whatever way he calls you in the new year.
“Right now, God is working through your support for Resonate missionaries, church planters, campus ministers and other ministry leaders in your own community and to the ends of the earth. And, in the coming year, even more people will come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their faith. Thank you for walking with them!
Joel Huyser, Interim Director”
