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 Greg and Sue Smith, CBF Field Representatives in Fredericksburg, VA. They are the founders of LUCHA Ministries, created to help Latinos cope with the struggles of a new life in the United States. Sue says, “We try to be Christ for the people that we minister to.” We want to empower them to confront situations that are beyond their control.”
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.]
