You probably remember (because it was just last week), my parents went out of town to Dallas, TX, for the annual Southern Baptist Convention. They went with our pastor and his wife, my aunt & uncle, and two other families from our church. Tonight, we didn’t have choir, so that we could all attend the report meeting to hear about the convention from Pastor Ronny.
Here’s a few quick stats: almost 10,000 “Messengers” attended from around the county, which was the most since the 2010 convention. (“Messengers” are voting members of the Southern Baptist churches. “Guests” can also attend, but not vote.) Bradfordville sent 10 messengers and three guests. We commissioned 79 new international missionaries. Which is a great thing, because there are 2.8 billion people in the world with little to know knowledge of the gospel.
