New Missionaries, Ultrasound Machines, & Who’s Your One
The International Mission Board commissioned 48 missionaries recently. The Psalm 139 Project donated a portable ultrasound machine for a mobile unit at Hope Pregnancy Center of Brazos Valley, Inc. And the North American Mission Board is celebrating more than 50,000 people who have participated in the Who’s Your One campaign.
From the struggles of life and marriage to the ministry of Celebrate Recovery to the mission field. That’s the story of John and Serena Tail. Neither of them grew up in Christian homes, but they’ve both come to see the power of God at work in their lives. Now, they want to share it with other.
They were recently commissioned with 47 other missionary families to serve all over the world through the International Mission Board. The Tails are headed to work with indigenous people in Mexico.
Jarrett Stephens, senior pastor of Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, encouraged the new appointees from Acts 8 that “good things happen when God says ‘go,’ and you don’t say ‘no.’”
He called the missionaries to remember three things from Acts 8:
They must stay sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
The work God calls us to comes with a cost, but it’s worth it.
It’s a privilege to join God in His work and give Him all the glory.
The International Mission Board is the world’s largest sending agency in the world with more than 3,500 personnel serving on the mission field.
The Psalm 139 Project, a pro-life ministry of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, has donated a portable ultrasound machine for a mobile unit at Hope Pregnancy Center of Brazos Valley, Inc.
Hope Pregnancy Center first opened in Bryan, Texas, in 1985. They have operated at three different locations over the years, but for the past 20 years they’ve work out of College Station, Texas.
The center has a mobile ministry to five surrounding counties and they see an average of 1,800 clients every year.
Center leaders say the focus on pregnancy testing, options consultation, parenting classes, pregnancy loss support and post-abortion healing.
