Mother’s Day reminds us that not only are mothers important, but Godly parents are important to children and the larger community.
Jesus encourages his disciples to pray and he promises that God answers persistent prayers. Motherhood is hard and can be exhausting, but Godly motherhood is so important and prayer is a vital part of parenting.
For the past many years, LJCF men have attended the Mighty Men Advance weekend conference. Each year, hundreds of men from around the western United States gather in South Dakota to celebrate Jesus. The conference features half-a-dozen speakers who encourage men to be mighty men and advance the kingdom of God. The event is called an “advance” not a “retreat” because mighty men of God have the purpose to advance the kingdom of God in a dark and broken world.
On Sunday, April 11, 2017, the men came back from the conference and talked about what they learned and how they were encouraged.
