The Gideons International

JANUARY: This month we will be highlighting: “The Gideons International”.

According to their website: The Gideons are DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS

We are a body of believers dedicated to making the Word of God available to everyone and, together with the local church, reaching souls for Christ.

The Gideons International is the result of a meeting between two men who wished to band commercial travelers together for evangelism. What began in 1908 as an Association of Christian businessmen placing Bibles in hotel rooms has evolved into an expanding mission to provide Scriptures to all people in nearly every facet of life. Today, we have taken more than 2 billion Scriptures in more than 95 languages to 200 countries, territories, and possessions across the globe. We exist as an advocate for the lost, to bring them the saving knowledge of the Word through not only placing and distributing Scriptures, but also through personal witnessing and by associating together for service. As a united force for the Gospel, we remain rooted in tradition, but we operate under the firm belief that anyone can be a valuable asset to this invaluable cause. We provide many opportunities to partner with us through either prayer or financial support. Join us, and let's spread the Good News.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (NAMB)

April: This month we highlight the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering from the North American Mission Board (NAMB)

What is the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering?

According to their website: The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO) is the primary way Southern Baptists fund missions in North America. One hundred percent of gifts given to AAEO go to the field to support more than 2,400 missionary families serving across the United States and Canada.

The offering was started in 1895 by Woman's Missionary Union® (WMU) to benefit the work of the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board). In 1934, it was named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a bold missions advocate and WMU's first national executive leader. Today, more than $2 billion has been donated by Southern Baptist churches and individuals to support thousands of missionaries in church planting and compassion ministries. Because of this sacrificial giving, millions of lives have been and continue to be transformed by the power of the gospel.

Gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering are used to train and resource missionaries in church planting and compassion ministries. Gifts are also used to create evangelism resources. New churches are being planted, hurts are being healed and lives are being transformed by the gospel because you give.

Per their website: Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services (BCHFS) was established in 1918 and is a source of Hope and Healing. They provide Christ-Centered services to children and families in need. 

“For the parents whose teen is struggling, the child whose home is no longer safe, the young woman facing an unexpected pregnancy, the infertile couple whose greatest dream is to be Mom and Dad, or the individual or family in need of counseling – BCHFS is here to help.”

They have five areas they provide help with: Residential Care, Maternity Care, Adoption Services, Counseling, and Pregnancy Resources.

This year we are highlighting their Mother’s Day Offering 2023. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1

We at Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services want to recognize mothers and honor their legacy each year through our Mother’s Day Offering.

Mother’s Day evokes a myriad of memories and emotions. This year I approach the day with deep reflection and a heavy heart because Mom passed away last year. She loved the Lord and she wanted people to know Jesus. I think that’s the most important thing she would share. That’s what’s at the heart of providing Christ-centered services. I would like to ask you to partner with Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services by supporting the Mother’s Day Offering to help those who are hurting and grieving. ~ Kevin Carrothers, Executive Director  https://youtu.be/GPw05uFPGoo
