In Rusk County, Texas, at least two churches closed because of the pandemic. So, pastor David Higgs of First Baptist Church in Henderson, Texas, knew his church couldn’t sit in neutral and expect to endure the challenges.

“There are plenty of unchurched and lost people in our community. God wants to use this church to reach the nation for Christ,” Higgs said.

He took his whole staff to Longview, Texas, last year to attend a Who’s Your One Tour stop at Mobberly Baptist Church to help them get their evangelistic program on track.

Who’s Your One is an intentional outreach strategy developed by the North American Mission Board.

The staff at FBC Henderson left Longview brainstorming ways they could tailor the content they had learned to fit their church.

Three hundred church members signed up to be a part of the two month campaign. God honored their faithfulness and so far the church has seen 41 people come to faith as a result of the campaign.

Pastor Higgs says they plan to do a Who’s Your One? emphasis every fall for the foreseeable future.

Administrators at the Portico pregnancy support center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee are celebrating the arriving of a new ultrasound machine they say will help women understand how their unborn babies are developing.

The ultrasound was given to the center through the Psalm 139 Project of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was on hand for the delivery of the new machine.

The ERLC has now placed or committed to place 31 ultrasound machines toward its goal of 50 placements between December 2020 and January 2023, the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States.
