APSU BCM Mission Trip to Mexico
We worked with a ministry called Project Fortify and worked with Horeb Baptist Church as well as the Pilar of Hope Orphanage. Our primary mission work was in an impoverished neighborhood where the ministry hopes to establish a church in the area with more than 300 homes. We did construction work at one home and did Backyard Bible Clubs in the afternoon. A prayer request was answered because one family in the neighborhood has offered their home as a place to start a weekly Bible study.
Please pray for Stacy Murphree as she ministers on the Austin Peay State University campus. Pray for the BCM leaders that serve with her to reach their campus for Christ.
You think of “winding down” at the end of a semester but we stayed busy reaching out to our campus and community. We hosted our annual Christmas at the B; Our Refuge Band provided worship at Yellow Creek Baptist Church; We hosted our Reverse Noonday Lunch to say thank you to our churches who provided meals for students this semester , we served over 250 students at our exam week pancake outreach; We provided Christmas stockings for our international exchange students; and we served our final meal at The Well ministry for this semester.
It’s not too early to begin thinking about plans for next year. Is God calling you to be a summer servant? Begin praying for God’s guidance and click on http://www.sendtnmissions.org for more information!
