Great Commission Giving
It is a thrilling experience to hear a first-person account from an international pastor about souls being saved and added to the church. You can play a direct role in strengthening churches around the globe. The International Partnership will hold its second All Partners Conference in Bangkok in November, but a major hurdle for our internationals to attend is the expense to get to Bangkok. Travel costs are high. Churches could share in this opportunity to equip and encourage international brothers and sisters. If the Lord would lead you to help get an international to the conference, you may donate online (select “Travel Fund–Conference Associates”) or send the gift to GARBC International Ministries, 1300 N. Meacham Road, Schaumburg, IL 60173, designating “International Scholarship Fund.”
GARBC Ministries Special Offering Opportunities
With Thanksgiving ahead, please consider taking an offering to express your appreciation of GARBC ministries. Financial support of GARBC ministries has declined as churches trim their missions budgets. To help you communicate the work of the GARBC to your church family, three new video presentations are available for you to download free-of-charge.

GLS Provides Snow-Themed VBS for South Africa
Praise the Lord for His use of the ministry of Gospel Literature Services in proclaiming the gospel to South African children. Community Connection Church in Ballito, South Africa, received Regular Baptist Press’s Polar Extremes VBS program, published in 2009, to use in its Holiday Bible Clubs. “We ministered to 212 kids on the first day!” says Director Liezel Essop.
