Our church is part of the CMA (Christian and Missionary Alliance) denomination. The annual conference was held in our city this year! We got to go watch some incredible speakers, but we unfortunately missed the most important event because we all got pink eye and didn’t want to spread it. The finale of the conference was the commissioning of the new CMA missionaries. We luckily were able to live-stream it, which ended up being really moving – they blurred the faces of the missionaries headed to difficult countries and just gave the general area info instead of the specifics. Very sad we missed that part, but thrilled we got to attend some of the other sessions!
