Women On Mission

Our WOM challenge this year is for Christ followers to:

  • Follow His example
  • Step into the world around us
  • Cultivate relationships
  • Create opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ by all means possible

Lottie Moon said, “We need to make friends before we can hope to make converts.” I am pretty sure she is still expecting this of all people in today’s environment of divisiveness and turmoil.
As we go about our everyday activities, let’s be aware of those around us. Maybe, we are having a difficult day, but that person checking out your groceries may have received a devastating diagnose from their doctor. This is just one example of what may be going on in the lives of those around us. Let us always be ready to reach out and make a new friend. You never know what a difference you can make in the life of someone who at that moment might be ready to hear the gospel story.

We are to be the example of Christ’s love for all those that we meet each day. No matter how you feel, put that smile on your face and share the love, hope and peace of our Holy Father with a new friend.
Blessings,
Leslie Baker

Our Women on Mission groups will continue the summer mission project of providing desserts for the Peninsula Chinese Baptist Church’s J-1 ministry outreach. They will meet each Tuesday evening, 7-10, in the Youth Center from June 18th through August 13th. The J-1 students truly enjoy these American desserts. The Annette Hall group will be covering four Tuesdays in June/July, starting on the June 18th; the Helping Hands will cover July 23 & 30 (no dessert during VBS week) and Mission Vision will finish up on August 6th & 13th. There should be at least two large sheet cakes, three to four dozen cookies, cupcakes, and/or brownies. These can be ready made or you can do box mixes. Please deliver your goodies to the Learning Center in the downstairs Youth Center before 7pm. The door to the Learning Center will be open at 6:30pm. Otherwise, check with Donna in the office before dropping off to get the key to the Learning Center.

Please enjoy your summer and prepare your hearts and minds for Women On Mission groups resuming in September.
