India * Swaziland, Africa

This past Sunday, we celebrated what Clovis Hills is doing in the world through missions. We have an exciting follow up to Lynette Goodwin, who has just returned from a mission in India! A self proclaimed "scaredy-cat," Lynette Goodwin serves on the missions team as a volunteer Missions Ministry Director and strives to help Clovis Hills be on mission. Lynette's story was recently published in the International Mission Board's recent eNewsletter. Take a couple moments to read it at: Lynette's Story.

When you hear or see the word "missions" - what comes to mind? Sleeping in a mud hut? Traveling to Zimbabwe? Stepping way out of your comfort zone? Well certainly all the above could apply but are definitely NOT the rule. I believe when it comes to missions that God wants each one of us to take the next step in the journey of discipleship. One step at a time with Jesus. Another person who has taken the "next step" is Danny Johnson who recently served on mission in Swaziland, Africa. Go to the Hope Rises website to learn more about this amazing mission born here in the Fresno/Clovis area!
