Extra time for reflection, prayer and meditation are Lenten practices taken on by many of us as Easter approaches. Some of us include fasting or giving up certain foods as part of our spiritual journey. Baptists have also included a Season of Prayer and an Easter Offering for missions. Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, with which River Road affiliates, sponsors missionaries, field representatives, who work in the Americas and around the world who work with the most neglected. They give support and assistance for “life needs,” including the message of God’s love.
Pray for the Together for Hope Initiative of CBF and the Field Representatives who work in twenty of the poorest communities of ten states in the United States. Field Representatives work with local leaders and churches to try to find avenues to change the patterns of economic disparity and give encouragement to the people. South Dakota, where River Road has sent short term mission teams for years, is one of the states included in the Together for Hope mission.
Please pray for this ministry. Offering envelopes are in the Sanctuary pew racks. You may also make a contribution online (select “Global Missions”). [General instructions for online giving are available.]
