There are over 300 million people in the United States alone but North America also includes the people of Canada and Mexico. With those nations included that's over 450 million people that are part of our Samaria. It seems a daunting task to believe that the Church has been called to reach that many people. Currently there are fewer Churches in this area per population than there was in the 1940's and 1950's. In an age that the statement "There's a Church on every corner" continues to be used we have to come to the conclusion that it's just not true. Some areas have large populations that do not have access to a place of worship. Often it's because the people are spread out in a large geographic area but it's also because we as believers have shunned taking the Gospel to areas that seemed too dark or resistant to the Gospel message. May North America be changed because we have accepted the title of Missionaries for the cause of Christ. Montgomery Memorial is currently partnering with Pastor Warren Mainard of Essential Church in Bellevue, Washington. Bellevue is a suburb of Seattle, Washington. It is the center of many technological oriented businesses and has very little in the way of evangelical work. Warren and his family have moved to start Essential Church and need our support. We are currently planning a mission trip for the summer of 2013 to assist the ministry of that congregation.
