Scripture:     II John 3:18 “My children, our love should not be just words or talk; it must be true love which shows itself in action.” (Jimmie Muckleroy’s scriptural reminder)

From: Les Hodson – Regional Mission project coordinator and Nathan Higginbotham, staff.

The 2019 Spring Mission Project will be to make repairs for a Corpus Christi congregation, Bethany Christian Church from damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. We will also remove an existing 30-foot wall and build a new much needed bathroom. This will involve outside work to run sewer, water, and electrical conduit for this bathroom.

What you can do!

Your participation, your prayers and monetary gifts are needed. The cost of the project will mostly be paid jointly by our regional Disciples Men and the Disciples of Christ’s Week of Compassion. Additionally, gifts from churches and individuals will be greatly appreciated.
