March 26, 2011

Dale Stowe, pastor of the Word of God church in Sweetwater, is about to embark on a mission trip to Reynosa, Mexico.
Pastor Stowe shares about his trip for many reasons. He wants to bring attention to answering God's call and so that he also might be lifted up in prayer for the duration of the trip.
The journey began through Larry Goff, a forty-year missionary who has traveled the world and specializes in ministering in South America. In this particular mission effort, Goff has been near the Texas, Mexico and Arizona borders to reach people who are in need of help.
