ABC in focus - February 2020
As I write this article, it sure feels like spring! The daffodils are coming up, the grass is turning green, and a Carolina wren is perched outside my window. As you read this article, however, the temperatures will probably be wintry again. The weather changes quickly, and so do the populations of farm workers in our area. We recently had the opportunity of visiting a group of tree planters and sharing the Gospel with them. Other farm workers have not yet started to return to our area, but by the time you read this, they probably will. Please join us in praying for effective outreach this year. I’m encouraged by the support of several members of Nueva Esperanza in this ministry. Would you join me in praying for protection, strength and ministry effectiveness for all of us who are involved in reaching out to those who work on farms? And thank you for your prayers last month for the process of planning this year’s events at Nueva Esperanza. We had a successful leadership meeting this month, and we’re excited about what we believe the Lord has led us to plan for this year.
ABC Regional Hispanic Ministries is focused on taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to Hispanics outside the walls of the church. From its beginnings in 1992 as an outreach to transient farm workers, ABC has proclaimed the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Hispanics of Allendale, Hampton, Barnwell, Bamberg and Colleton Counties in South Carolina.
Our Purpose: to reach and win the Spanish language/culture people to Jesus Christ, to provide them with discipleship development, and to provide a Christian ministry to the permanent, seasonal, and transient Spanish language/culture people of Allendale-Hampton, Barnwell-Bamberg, and Colleton Associations in cooperation with local Southern Baptist churches.
Our Mission: to establish on-mission Hispanic churches which will reach out to the Hispanic population (transient and permanent) of the ABC area, and to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission among the transient population.
