ABC in focus - September 2019
Thank you to all of you who celebrated the ABC Day of Prayer on the second Sunday in August! If you would like to pray for ABC at another time, undated materials are available from the associational office. On that particular Sunday, two different people approached me after church and asked to talk with me about baptism. I believe this is a direct answer to prayer. Again, thank you!
This month, please pray for our continued outreach in Kline. The Kline Baptist Church has been ministering to Hispanic children for some time, and we have held several outreach events in partnership with them. Our most recent effort, a Vacation Bible School held in August, resulted in the participation of children from three community families. We believe this is a good beginning for further ministry and outreach to their parents. Would you be praying with us as we plan to begin a weekly Bible study? Please pray that we would be able to build bridges into the community, to reach many with the Good News of Christ and to identify needs we can meet in the community.
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.
