ABC in focus - March 2019
As the weather begins to warm up, farm workers are beginning to move back into our area as well. In fact, I’ve already had the opportunity to minister on two farms this month. In addition to meeting physical needs through our health kit ministry, we also share the Gospel and seek to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of those to whom we minister. Over the past couple of weeks I have been struck by the levels of need that exist. People are suffering from family loss, separation and feelings of powerlessness. We can be an expression of God’s love in the midst of suffering, but we need the supernatural empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Please pray that we would be wise, strong and loving in the midst of the pain that surrounds us. Pray that we would be effective in sharing the comfort we have found in Christ so that many others may find him as well in the midst of their suffering.
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.
