2017 Report 

The evangelism team for THBA has had one event this past year.  We had a mission trip to the Missouri State Fair on August 14th where we worked at the Baptist tent.  We had 10 people on mission from our association--9 people representing five churches and our director of missions.
 
The volunteers worked at the tent from 2-6 PM.  We invited people to register for a gift if they would give us three minutes of their time.  We shared the "greatest thing that has happened in our life" (a three-minute testimony) with them.  If they had interest we shared how they might receive Christ.  We shared our testimonies to over a hundred people and had 1 person receive Christ and 3 recommitted their lives to get back into church.  Thee were over 1,300 people who heard the gospel throughout the state fair from all of the participating association teams and there were 56 people who received Jesus during the August 10-20 state fair.
 
I encourage you to get involved in missions, not just in your church field but also beyond.  God blesses us when we are on mission.  There was an excitement around the Baptist tent as we shared our faith.  Thanks for those who gave of their time and served with us.
 
Larry Gibson, Coordinator
