Ladies, we have a challenge. Ten women from West Virginia Baptist have accepted the call to go on a mission trip to the Philippines in February. They are going to SHARE & LIVE OUT the GOSPEL among Filipino women caught in prostitution.
The women will be working with Debbie Mulneix, one of the missionaries FBC partners with each month. Debbie supports the anti-human trafficking work of Samaritana Transformation Ministries in Manila, the Philippines. She assists in the development of the Guest House facilities and in the marketing of livelihood products, such as jewelry, and greeting cards.
SMT provides a safe, comforting place for these women. These women may have never known people who accept them as they are. Samaritana assists these women as they develop many relationships that will last a lifetime. To learn more about Samaritana check out www.samaritana.org.
The challenge is to sponsor an event at our church to raise $100 toward the cost of the trip for your sisters in Christ and ministry supplies. Believe me mission trips are expensive for it took me a while to pay off my trip in January to Costa Rica. By the way, thank you to the ones who helped me with my trip.
Since sponsoring an event costs a lot of money may I suggest that anyone who would like to help us meet this challenge give a donation with a check made out to FBC and mark it for the Philippines Mission Trip. When we meet the challenge the money will to be sent to Linda Carpenter, Treasurer, 63 Wakefield Place, Washington, WV 26181. Be in prayer for these ten women and Debbie Mulneix. It takes special people to do this work for our Lord.
Most of you have heard Lauren Bethel, who spoke at our church October 27th and several other times, who is a Global Consultant on Anti-human trafficking. She travels the world and on Nov. 22-28 she will be at the ICAP/Central Asia Conference in Central Asia, and several other conferences in Dec., sharing Jesus’ Hope and Healing. Lauren is another missionary that FBC partners with every month. Remember our missionaries in prayer.
MISSION CHALLENGE TO ALL WOMEN came from the WV ABW Mission and Service Ministries.
