One mission team from Temple Baptist Church, Ruston, La., concludes its overseas trip in the early part of this week, while two other teams are active all week — one in south Louisiana and the other in Canada.
The East Asia Mission Trip, which began Thursday, July 5, will end as the team returns Tuesday, July 17. Please pray for the team’s safe return.
Meanwhile, the Junior High Mission Trip has 32 students (seventh – ninth grades) and adults in New Orleans, La. July 15-20 to share the Gospel in a variety of ways. Backyard Bible Clubs are being held in the mornings. Afternoon activities include ministry to homeless people, helping in food pantries and working in yards. Temple’s group is working with MissionLab of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in the activities. Temple’s Youth and Recreation Minister, John Nugent, wrote in The Tidings, “Every year we have participated with MissionLab, our teenagers have led people to Christ.” Please pray that this week’s efforts will be similarly effective.
Much farther north, the Calgary Family Mission Trip has Temple folks in Calgary, Canada, July 14-20 to work with Temple’s mission partner Multiply Church. This week’s activities follow by about a month a Temple youth group’s trip that canvassed neighborhoods and placed approximately 45,000 door hangers to promote Multiply Church and its summer activities. The group this week will build on the foundation laid by the youth, helping Multiply Church in its outreach activities in Calgary. Please pray for success in their efforts in reaching unsaved people.
