SALT LAKE CITY (BP) -- Brittany Thompson Ferris was a 19-year-old college sophomore when a North American Mission Board missionary visited her church, First Baptist Church in Wichita Falls, Texas. As the missionary shared about the lostness in Salt Lake City, Ferris was captivated by the city as a mission field. "The Holy Spirit spoke straight to my heart about Salt Lake City," she said of one of the cities where NAMB is prioritizing church planting. "I didn't know what it would look like, but I did know that I was supposed to do something there."
A mother's greatest legacies, author/speaker Kathy Chapman Sharp writes, "are not family heirlooms or recipes handed down from generation to generation. The greatest legacies come when we allow the Holy Spirit to guide our motives of love and compassion."
