"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being ROOTED and grounded in LOVE, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the LOVE of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

~Ephesians 3:14-21

PERU.MISSION.2016: Mt. Vernon Baptist Church (Boone, NC) Serves In Peru

Six  Fervent  Travelers
Six fervent travelers
Their hearts full of love,
Set out on a journey
Ordained from above
They packed for their mission
With Bibles and tools
And the sweet love of Jesus,
Some say they were fools
To spend all their fortunes,
Their talents and time
To try to reach people
Of a whole different kind
A carpenter, a plumber,
A seller of land,
A nurse and two maidens
And this was their plan
To go to a people who
Might not have heard
And tell them of Jesus
And give them His Word
They feed them, they loved them
They showed them the way
To make it to Heaven
And live there someday
They walked thru the rough
And stony byways
Climbed mountain peeks
And stood there amazed
That God in his mercy
Had allowed them to see
And used them on purpose
To reach such as these.
