Join VOM in Edmonton tomorrow!
Saturday, March 19
West Meadows Baptist Church
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year, our special guest is Russell Stendal.
Russell Stendal was raised on the mission field in Colombia. He became a missionary jungle pilot at age 19. In 1983, Marxist rebels kidnapped him and held him hostage for five months. His book, Rescue the Captors, relates his experience, including how God worked in the hearts of the rebels.
Today, Russell heads up the work of Colombia Para Cristo, which operates 12 radio stations that cover much of Latin America with the gospel. Tens of thousands of people listen to radio broadcasts, as terrorists have banned church buildings, meetings and many ministries in the past 30 years.
You’ll also hear from VOM staff who travel the world, finding and sharing stories of those persecuted as well as implementing projects to help physically, financially, emotionally and spiritually.
No RSVP necessary. Just show up and find out how Jesus is changing lives in hostile nations around the world!
