SPRINGFIELD — A special offering will be taken during the Missouri Baptist Convention annual meeting Oct. 27 at 11:15 a.m. to benefit the Disaster Relief collegiate summer missionary program.
The program completed its second year this summer, with six summer missionaries from around the state getting the opportunity to be Christ’s hands and feet in Missouri and across the country.
Over the course of the summer, they were trained in mud out, chainsaw, manning shower trailers, childcare and mass feeding. They travelled and served in Oklahoma, Ohio, Tennseesee and Missouri.
The idea is three-fold. The first is bringing awareness to the next generation that Disaster Relief is for all and of the ministries of the Cooperative Program. The second is to bring in some fresh workers to the ever-growing task that is DR. The third goal is to send them back out once the summer is over to help other students get plugged into DR.
