Urbana ’09 – Day One

December 27, 2009 is a day many missions minded individuals have been looking forward to for a long time. It only happens every three years. I’m talking about InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s Urbana ’09 Student Missions Conference. It’s been the largest student missions convention in North America for decades. This year [for the second time] it’s being held in St. Louis, Missouri.

The conference got started just like ever other Urbana I’ve been to — with praise and worship and an incredible challenge to set the ton for the week. This year’s conference is called, THE WORD BECAME FLESH, taken from John 1. Listen to this audio story here in mp3.
