ABC in focus - November 2019
The Thanksgiving holiday is not commonly celebrated in Mexico and the rest of Latin America, but the folks at Nueva Esperanza have been celebrating it for years. It’s a marvelous opportunity to celebrate the country they now live in. It’s also a great time to give thanks for all the blessings they’ve received.
I, for one, am thankful for the opportunity to serve in these five counties as Director of Hispanic Missions. I’m thankful for the thousands of lives this ministry has touched over the years. I’m thankful for the members of Nueva Esperanza, who joyfully serve their Lord in many different ways. I’m thankful for the churches that have opened their doors to Hispanic ministry. I’m thankful for the prayers of God’s people, prayers that make an impact far beyond what we can see. I’m thankful, most of all, for Christ’s perfect life, death on the cross and resurrection for us. Because of him, every day is meaningful. Because of him, life is full of hope.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. This month, rather than sharing a prayer request, I simply invite you to give thanks to God for all his goodness. If I can help you in any way to reach out to Hispanics in your area, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
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.
