Ministries I support

Here are links to some of the ministries/missions that I think are worth your time. Ann and I have, at some point, either participated in, contributed to, or know someone who is working with these groups.

The International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention: This is the arm of the SBC that supports over 5,000 missionaries around the world. Not perfect, but still an excellent method of missions support.

The North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention: This is the part of the SBC that reaches out to unchurched parts of the USA and Canada. Good stuff. Partners with state conventions and churches.

Wycliffe Bible Translators: Named after one of the first to translate the Bible into English, Wycliffe goes to places and people groups that do not have the Bible in their heart language, and translates it. Sometimes this is a short 5-10 year task, sometimes it's a 30 year task. Some of the languages are oral languages until Wycliffe missionaries develop a written form, then begin to do the translation work. Our friends the Choates do this.

Rivers of the World
: They do lots of social ministry combined with evangelism. And other great stuff.

Shevet Achim: These are Christians who work in the Middle East, bringing Muslim children to Jewish cardiologists for life-saving heart surgery. And you thought you had a hard job! Their story is amazing, and well worth reading and keeping up with!

Reach Orphans with Hope: This is a group dedicated to caring for orphans in the Ukraine. This one, I haven't had any personal involvement with. Yet.

Shaohannah’s Hope
: An adoption-enabling group. Again, my personal involvement hasn't really hit this one either. Yet.

World Crafts Village: This is an economic project of the WMU, that helps provide jobs and opportunities for sharing the love of Christ. If you are one of the deacons at Calvary Baptist Church, or are Spencer or Marilyn, your Christmas present came from here. And a good friend of our family works with this.

A lot of good things are accomplished through the Arkansas Baptist State Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention Cooperative Program. Education, hunger relief, disaster relief, medical needs, social issues, and even a modicum of political meddling are all a part of these programs, which are great!
