Summer Mission Trip Milwaukee July 20-25

The Association sponsored a mission trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin this summer.  We helped with some light construction on a Hispanic church, led backyard Bible clubs for children in city parks, and we helped the Arabic Baptist Church of Milwaukee as they target Arabic families in that city.  Pastor B.J. McAlpin of La Plata led the mission team.

Association Churches Give Used Literature to Love Packages

Love Packages is a ministry in Butler, IL which collects Christian literature and ships it to English-speaking countries around the world.  Every year they ship more than 1,000 tons of literature to countries like the Philippines, South Africa, and Ghana.  It is estimated that every piece of literature on the mission field will have an average of 20 reads.  We can help by collecting our used Sunday School literature, magazines, books (non-fiction), Bibles, tracts, devotionals, etc.  Giving Hope Ministries in Kirksville will come to your church and collect the materials that you collect.  Call 660-216-4183 for pickup.  This won’t cost you anything and is a great way to recycle materials for the Kingdom!  You can learn more about Love Packages at https://lovepackages.org/

2022 Report

The mission to Milwaukee was called Mission Milwaukee.  It was held July 20-25.  We served two church plants in Milwaukee with a construction project at a Hispanic congregation and Backyard Bible clubs for an Arabic congregation.  We received funds from several sources including the THBA.  Thank you for your support for Nueva Vida en Cristo and the Arabic congregation of Layton Avenue Baptist Church, Milwaukee.



The Association also contributed funds for a mission trip to Alaska by First Baptist Church Atlanta and a mission trip to New York State by Rehoboth Baptist Church.
