God has been so amazing in allowing us to be involved in many mission projects as well as evangelistic opportunities. God has enabled us to be involved in work projects, surveying, door to door evangelism, bible distribution, evangelistic concerts (youth choirs and Adult), back yard bible clubs, VBS, and many other ways to spread the gospel locally and internationally. God is so good and we get excited to see how He is going to use His people as we continue to seek to be a “missional” people.
Members of First Baptist Okmulgee have joined with Visiting Orphans to live out the commandment of James 1:27
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
We seek to build lasting and mutually beneficial relationships within state run orphanages in China. It is our hope to build good, strong and long term relationships with the orphanage staff, community, and children. We desire to make a lasting impact on the lives we touch. We share the love of Jesus through providing for physical needs as well as sending loving arms to meet the needs of the lonely. Many of the children we minister to have special needs.
Our church’s commitment to missions in Mexico began in 2005. It began with Vacation Bible Schools and led to multiple construction trips to work on the Baptist Seminary in Zihuatanejo. Our work expanded to Chilpancingo where we worked with four churches in the city to make evangelistic visits in their areas of town. Cooperating with the local churches we branched out to Chilapa where we held Vacation Bible School, passed out hundreds of Spanish New Testaments and participated in prayer walks.
We have spent two years working with the First Baptist Church of Chilpancingo to plant a church in Apango. We have held Vacation Bible School, passed out Spanish New Testaments, made evangelistic visits, and held services in the home of one family that is committed to the Lord.
With every copy of the Bible we get to share we claim God’s promise in Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
