ABC in focus - October 2020
This month, I would like to share with you two encouraging developments in our ministry to Hispanics. The first is that attendance at the physical services Nueva Esperanza holds in Hampton has been rising. In fact, on two recent Sundays, our attendance was similar to a typical pre-pandemic Sunday. We continue to practice physical distancing and mask wearing in our services, but it’s encouraging to see our attendance picking back up again. Please continue to pray for the outreach of Nueva Esperanza. The second bit of encouraging news is that one of the farm workers to whom we have been ministering this year has decided to take the step of baptism. We look forward to baptizing him before he returns to his home country, and I am currently in the process of leading baptism preparation classes. Would you pray that he would not be the only one to be baptized this year? Pray that others would see his example and choose to follow Christ in baptism. 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.
