Last week I went to the uttermost parts of the world, or maybe I just met them halfway.

I was a representative from the Atlantic district and a guest at the International Conference of the Wesleyan Church, held in Bridgetown Barbados.

During that time, I dined with pastors from Myanmar, Poland, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Cambodia and Australia and met leaders from a score of other countries.

We worshipped together, prayed together, learned from each other, sat through business sessions, laughed, chatted and ate. 

We had very little in common other than our faith and our desire to follow Christ’s commandment to make disciples.

And our time in Barbados could be traced all the way back to a hillside discussion 2000 years ago, when Jesus commanded the Apostles to go into all the world and promised that they would be witnesses wherever they went. 

And for 2000 years, believers have embraced both the commandment and the promise and that continues as I heard national leaders from around the world speak of their desire to reach people who are far from God.

The theme that has been embraced by the Wesleyan Church is: Everywhere to Everywhere, which is just an acknowledgement of our desire to obey the words of Jesus to go into all the world.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
