It was great to revisit Franklin Lakes Baptist Church in New Jersey. Chris Hindal had attended there a few times with his college roommate in the late ’60s. Pastor Matthew Carpenter is leading the church to be intentional in its ministry focus.

Chris was able to encourage the congregation by sharing how God is building His church around the globe. Chris presented Gospel Literature Services in the Sunday School hour. After challenging the congregation through the Scriptures with their personal assignment relating to the Great Commission, he shared with them how God is using our international partners to obey the assignment throughout the world.

Dean and Judy Melchior were gracious hosts, and Chris appreciated their fellowship.
