Beach Reach 2014 under way

logoMore than three dozen college students from Temple Baptist Church in Ruston, La., will be spending much of their break between winter and spring quarters witnessing to, feeding and providing transportation for other college students who are on their spring break in Florida. Casey Casady, Temple’s minister to college students, wrote about the trip in the Feb. 19, 2014, issue of the church’s newsletter:

Beach Reach is a mission trip experience where servant evangelism takes the form of free van rides and pancakes. Thousands visit Panama City during Spring Break and many are hurting and searching for meaning. College students provide simple acts of service that open the door to life-changing conversations about the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

Your college students … will give over 1,000 van rides and serve pancakes to over 5,000 people. Beyond the logistical numbers, over 35 students gave their lives to Christ last year in the first week of Beach Reach! These truly are life-changing pancakes! It is a tremendous week of service and salvation. We hope you will partner with us March 1-8 in prayer. Pray for SALVATION, SAFETY, and STRATEGIC victories for the Kingdom of God. Know that our God hears our prayers. There is always evidence of our church family praying for us at Beach Reach. To God be the glory for the lives HE will change this Spring Break!

Please be in prayer for the following students as they serve God and other students during Beach Reach 2014.
