We heard from our Czech Republic interns over the weekend that their first week has been wonderful! We are SO grateful for Mitch Anderson and his leadership and willingness to host our dear Victoria Steffins and Natalie Neill. We're so proud of these girls and this partnership with such a great ministry. #ACUMissions

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 #acumissions #halbertcenter #weareacumissions #abilenechristianuniversitymissions #abilenechristianuniversity #thehalbertcenterformissionsandglobalservices #worldwidewitness #globalservicetrips #gapyear

Hey wonderful WWW family! The Center for International Education would like to invite you to a great opportunity to engage with some of our international students at one of our 3C Dinners this semester. We will be discussing a different topic each month and for this month, the ACU Missions: Halbert Center for Missions and Global Service has graciously offered to partner with us by hosting the first dinner where we will be talking about Nonverbal Communication in a cross cultural context. We still have about 10 spots open, so if you would like to join us, please use this link to register: https://tinyurl.com/3CDinner0920 Feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions!
Since 2010, I have been extraordinarily blessed and honored to work as the director of the Halbert Center for Missions and Global Service at Abilene Christian University. These past eight years have been both challenging and incredibly fulfilling. Today I am thrilled to announce as of June 1, the Halbert Center has new leadership, with Dodd Roberts stepping into the role as our new director, a move that I am 100% behind. This change is the result of my desire to return to full-time teaching and working with our graduate and undergraduate students, to equip them for mission and global service in the classroom. Just as God blessed the Halbert Center to flourish under the leadership of Sonny Guild for a decade, and as God has been leading and blessing us these past eight years, so too God is going to do even greater things under the able leadership of Dodd. We have great confidence in him, his leadership, and most importantly, the God who is at work to equip ACU to live into God’s mission. Please take time to congratulate Dodd ([email protected]) and the rest of the Halbert Staff and continue to pray for us to fulfill God’s mission here at ACU.
We mark the passing of both Ruth and Joe Betts, early missionaries who served in Japan for more than 50 years. Ruth left this life on March 20, 2018 and Joe followed on the 31st. Joe's funeral will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 4 at the Hillcrest Church in Abilene. Joe often made jokes about being "Ruth-less" when traveling without his beloved wife. A WorldWide Witness veteran who visited the Betts every Friday suggested that following Ruth's passing, Joe died of a broken heart. We will certainly miss their sweet presence.
Good job Chris. Have a look, when you catch a minute, at how Daniel, Caleb and I are reaching out .... www.manabouts.com
