It has been just over a week now that I have been back from the Moody Missions Conference in Spokane, WA. Perry Pust and I had a good chance to talk with many of the students about what MAF is doing around the world. Moody is about a 6 1/2 hour drive from where our headquarters is here in Nampa, ID. There continues to be a lot of interest in serving with MAF and missionary aviation in general.
The recruiting department is also gearing up for the huge mission conference called URBANA which is being held in St. Louis, MO this year. The event happens every 3 years and is hosted by Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. Last time we were there, there were 20,000 students and 450 mission organizations there. If you have a chance to go, it is a life changing event. Check out the website at www.urbana.org. Maybe I'll see you there. It is from Dec. 27 to January 1.
