Something Out of the Ordinary

Feb 4th marked First Christian's mission emphasis kickoff. Weiling and Garry Kline were ordained as church-planting missionaries. Their family will be moving to Tokyo, Japan later this year to join two other Team Expansion mission families sharing life and faith. Their philosophy of church planting models the Book of Acts and their goal is to share their relationship with Jesus Christ with all who are seeking greater purpose. Thanks to everyone who came on our behalf, including the good folks from Brooksville Christian Church and The Bridge, both of whom received the national flag of Japan to display. Extra special thanks to Kathy Roberts for coordinating the desserts, Samuel Hellegers for coordinating the videos and photos, Norm Darling and the church elders for coordinating the event, and Gary Bordelon for coordinating us!
