Believe or not, students are starting to make plans for Spring Break! Tennessee Baptist Collegiate Ministries around the state provide students opportunities to go and serve through Spring Break mission trips. Last year, over 550 TN BCM students served around the world. Pray for those students who are planning and preparing to share the Gospel over Spring Break!
Austin Peay BCM Christmas Mission Trip
We partnered with a ministry called Project Fortify which works along the border in Alamo, Texas and Reynosa, Mexico to strengthen local churches in Reynosa. The Austin Peay BCM has placed a team with this ministry each year for the past four years. Over Christmas break, we spent time working at an orphanage in Reynosa. We painted and did work projects at the orphanage as well as just help with everyday tasks at the orphanage such as teaching, preparing meals, and helping with laundry. We also worked with a mission church in a poor neighborhood. On our last day we helped put on a block party for children and their family with music, Bible study, games, face painting, food, etc. We had anticipated about 30 children but had over 120 attend. It was incredible!
