Alma Hunt Offering
September 15-October 19, 2021
The annual offering for Virginia missions was named for Alma Hunt (1909–2008), a native Virginian who was known worldwide for her missions service and her unswerving dedication to the cause of Christ. Churches and individuals may contribute at any time.
The offering provides funding for all Woman’s Missionary Union of Virginia (WMUV) missions and ministries and makes possible other Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) special ministries, outreach projects, and initiatives not funded through regular streams of giving. Since 1976, this offering has been a joint venture of WMUV and the BGAV. The annual goal and allocation of funds are determined by the Executive Director/ Treasurer of WMUV and the Executive Director of the BGAV and approved by their respective boards.
The stories you read each week are of real people and real ministries, and all are recipients of some financial support from this offering. Every dollar you give goes directly to support these and many other ministries. We invite you to give to the Alma Hunt Offering— joining your gifts with those of many other Virginia Baptists as we share the love of Christ across the Commonwealth and with the whole world.
Please pray for the Alma Hunt Offering and consider giving to the offering.
You may make donations online (select “Alma Hunt State Missions” for the fund) or mail a check to the church office with “Alma Hunt Offering” in the memo.
Kenya Medical Missions
In March 2020, Dr. Lynne Stockman led the first mission trip of a three-year partnership to Mully Children’s Family (MCF) in Kenya to provide medical care to children in need and the surrounding community. The team provided care to over 2,200 patients in five days, some who walked over 20 miles to get to the mobile clinic. Dental, gynecologic, eye, wound, physical therapy, and general medical care was provided along with prescription medications. And since music is an important element in Kenyan culture, a small team also helped lead worship and teach guitar lessons.
Charles Mulli dreams of providing MCF and the surrounding communities with a hospital in the future. While we hope and pray for this dream to become a reality, the team looks forward to returning in 2022 to watch God at work and do our part to care for God’s kingdom here on Earth. Lynne shares, “I am thankful for the experience to use my professional skills to help those who do not receive medical care on a regular basis and to share the love of Jesus…we felt God’s presence in a mighty way!” Pray for the second team as they prepare to serve MCF.
