December 2-9 is designated as the Baptist Week of Prayer for International & Global Missions. We have just heard from our short-term missionaries to Burkina Faso, Maristela Araujo, and Rosa Coleman. May God multiply their ministry and the work of missionaries around the world. Be generous in our prayer and financial support. Locally, in December we are asked to help food pantries: Eastern Henrico FISH with canned meat, and Lighthouse International Church (former African Christian Community Church) with rice and tuna.
