I’m sitting in my office on a hot summer morning watching a lady come and water the community garden outside my window. It draws my mind to the parallel between the lifestyle of a farmer and mission. Too often we think in terms of a task to be completed and checked off, not a lifestyle […]
I want to introduce Carolyn Watts to you. Carolyn was an obstetrician who worked in the mountains of Afghanistan. She addressed the harsh realities that emerge every day when you have limited medical supplies, water, and electricity. She served those “beautiful and courageous – and needy – people” for four years before illness ended her medical […]

I would like to share one of my family’s favorites, and by doing so, wish you and your family a Feliz Navidad! Dwayne K. Buhler Executive Director, Missions Fest Vancouver A Piñata for Rosita The late afternoon sun dipped below the […]
Missions Fest exists to help connect the dots between people and the opportunities in local and global missions. It is our purpose to challenge people to be involved in the Great Commission. Tim Hall came to Missions Fest 2010 when his mother saw an ad in the local Christian newspaper, advertising the first annual Film […]
Our sponsoring churches play a key role in helping spread the word about Missions Fest every year. Please share and/or play this promo video at your church, or with family and friends. DVDs will be available at our November 21st planning meeting.
I am looking forward to Missions Fest 2014! I trust and pray that you will have an opportunity to connect with people who seek to serve God, both in our country and around the world. The artwork on the front of this year’s magazine created quite a stir. One person asked if the blob in […]
