Our Mission Focus for the month of February is on Sarah Brown. Sarah was a
member of our Youth Group several years ago and felt the call to work in the
Mission field. She selected The New Tribes Mission and went to Bakersfield,
California and is currently sharing the Gospel and her faith with the Sikh Punjabi
people. New Tribes Mission has changed its name to Ethnos 360. Ethnos means
people groups - the word Jesus used when He commanded us to make disciples of
all nations (people groups). 360 represents the entirety of the globe. It also
represents the cycle of the Great Commission, as a people group goes full circle
from receiving missionaries who bring the gospel to them and make disciples to
becoming a thriving church that sends men and women out to other people groups.
Sarah has been involved in the Punjabi community in Bakersfield. She appreciates
all out support and donations. Please keep Sarah and her work in your prayers.
