Daniel Vivanco • Now in these days our national conventionPresident is promoting fellowship in our churches,National Baptist friendship and volunteer service,Convention of Chile cooperating with one another to fulfill the Great Commission. • Another goal is a season of prayer so that each believer is a missionary in their neighborhood, work, church and home, to influence our society that needs to know the love of God. • Finally, we are forming a national network of volunteers, putting their talents, gifts, and professions to the service of our neighbors, evidence of our faith and redemption in Christ. • It is not hard to respond to the call of Jesus. “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” It is to say, “Here am I, Lord, send me .”
