a much preferable price tag. The missionaries and the speakers all seemed to enjoy the stay. The first speaker for the conference was Dr. Alton Beale, president of Ambassador Baptist College, who spoke Sunday morning on “Has America Forgotten God?” Sunday evening, Dr. John Bailes preached on “What Happens When a Church is Planted.” Monday and Tuesday we heard from Pastor Lee Bohman, as he gave a challenge to get serious about fasting, prayer and the reading of God's Word. Wednesday and Thursday, Pastor Kurt Skelly spoke on “How to Find Grace” and “The Danger of Professional Ministry.” All of the messages given contributed to a great conference. Though we were not able to have all of our USA missionaries and their families present, we were pleased to see many who did come and enjoy this special time with their families. There were tours arranged during free time to go to the Fenton Glass Company in nearby Parkersburg and also to the West Virginia State museum in Charleston. All of the missionaries were church planters and had the opportunity to share with one another prayer requests and some of the things they were doing on their field. In the process of presenting information to the missionaries, Dr. John Bailes and Bob Larson shared some of the changes that are taking place within the BIMI leadership structure. Dr. Bailes explained that in June of 2013 he would become the National Reseeding America Representative and Bob Larson would assume the position of USA Director. It was explained that both will be continuing to work in unison to advance the Reseeding America ministry of planting churches in the USA.
