On Thursday of this week Sylvia invited all four of the Port Vila Nazarene Church treasurers and their assistants to our house to get their offering and attendance statistics ready for assembly in November. She used the day to teach about God's desire for his people to be generous and sacrificial toward others as they studied together 2 Corinthians 8:1-15. Then she shared with them some thoughts about how they can fulfill their responsibility as treasurers with a high level of integrity. After that, they started adding attendance figures and finding averages and determined total income for each local church and how the money was spent. She also took time to share with them the incredible opportunity that our churches have to participate in the World Evangelism Fund Plus Challenge 2010 offering to support the work of missions around the world. We are so thankful for our churches who have faithfully given to God and his work in Vanuatu and worldwide!
