ABC in focus - February 2017
Did you know that Mexico consumes more sugary drinks per person than the United States? As Latin Americans - both in the United States and abroad - have adopted a westernized diet, their health has suffered the consequences. I do not believe that God wants his people to be unhealthy. He did not create us as pure spirits, but rather gave us bodies to glorify him with. I am convinced that we will serve God better if we take care of the physical tent in which we dwell. Therefore, we are beginning a six-week emphasis at Nueva Esperanza on living healthy lives. Will you join me in praying for God's guidance and blessing to be on this effort? 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.
