Mission Service Project for May

Agape Church ministry under the bridge, 1499 East Paisano, at 10:30 each Sunday. This is the migrant and homeless population. Please place items in the donation bins and mark the bags for Agape Church.  Supplies may include socks, toilet paper (the porta potty frequently runs out of toilet paper), band-aids, Neosporin ointment, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and combs. Talk to Cliff and Jamie Bryant to learn more.  Jim Hogg is the Chaplain and gives the message on Sunday mornings.        

Mission Service Projects:

Each month WOM and the small groups give to service mission projects such as:
Pray for Missionaries Passage: Psalm 42:1-4, focus verse 4
As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me all the day long, “Where is your God?” These things I remember, as I pour out my soul: how I would go with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God with glad shouts and songs of praise, a multitude keeping festival.

The book of Psalms gives us words to speak as we commune with God. Praying the Psalms back to God is a helpful practice. In today’s passage, the psalmist confessed his longing for God, his distress over his situation, and a desire to be among the people of God.

The passage also gives words to ask the Lord to renew your longing for Him and recall His past works in moments of grief or anguish. We are encouraged to pour out our hearts to God. We see this modeled well by Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane (Matt. 26:36-46). He confessed the turmoil He was feeling, prayed for the cup to pass from Him, and submitted to His Father’s will above His comfort.

Whether believers are church planting, serving overseas, or working in another ministry context, maintaining that longing for God is essential. As you pray for missionaries and church planters today, pray for spiritual refreshment, especially for those in areas with little Christian fellowship.

Prayer Focus-Sub-Saharan African Peoples: Southern Baptist women of all ages are serving the Lord faithfully as IMB missionaries across sub-Saharan Africa, in chaotic cities or remote villages, with one purpose: to share the hope they have found in Jesus Christ. Pray these enduring servants, together or alone, will be encouraged in spirit and strengthened to press on in the task before them.

Missions Through WMU and WOM

The mission of God is a thread woven throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. God makes it clear His desire is for all people to know Him and follow Him. The Bible helps us understand God’s mission and know how Christians are to be involved in His mission.
God issued the mandate for us to be involved in missions through the Great Commission. Our choice is how to be involved.  WMU and WOM offers many opportunities for giving and hands-on service missions projects.  

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Starting in 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® was established to empower the international missions’ efforts for Southern Baptists.  Your giving enables missionaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Changes lives forever by empowering North American missionaries to bring the gospel to the lost. With over 269 million lost people, North America and its major cities are some of the most spiritually dark places in the world. Join us on the mission to equip every missionary and reach every lost person in the United States and Canada.

Mary Hill Davis Offering

Your giving enables Texas Baptists to minister across Texas sending missionaries and provide opportunities for people to hear the Gospel, find hope in Christ, and sustain WMU of Texas’ ministry efforts.  Your gifts bring hope to a battered woman and her family. Your giving provides medicine for a sick child at a free medical clinic. A child’s life is changed because your generosity enables them to go to summer camp.
