ABC in focus - May 2017
In my last article I asked you to pray for our discipleship conference titled “Disciple or Fan?” Please join me in praising God for answering our prayers! Approximately one hundred (100) adults, children and youth from five (5) Hispanic churches gathered at First Baptist Church in Hampton Saturday, April 7th, to learn about following Jesus. The worship took us into God’s presence. The main speaker challenged us to consider why we follow Christ. The four (4) workshop leaders taught about specific aspects of our walk with Christ, and the lunch was delicious. I heard several comments afterward, including the following: “We need to do this more often.” “God spoke to me about my family life.” “Our church members couldn’t stop talking about this conference on Sunday.” Thank you for your prayers for this event! Thank you also to Hampton First Baptist for generously allowing us to use their facilities. We are now heading into the busiest time of our spring season of outreach to farm workers. Would you pray for the outreach events we have scheduled for the month of May? Pray for many hearts to be open to the Gospel. Pray for the weather and other factors that can make these events more or less effective. Pray that God’s love would be effectively communicated in what we do and say. As always, thank you for your prayers and support of ABC Regional Hispanic Ministries.
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.
