October Mission Offering Update: World Mission Offering (10/14/15)

World Mission OfferingSTRETCH FORWARD!

October’s Special Mission Offering is the World Mission Offering.

American Baptist International Ministries (IM), is supported solely through the generosity of churches and individuals. The primary fundraising vehicle is the annual World Mission Offering. This year’s World Mission Offering focuses on schools in Hungary, which were previously managed by the Communist government, but are now run by Hungarian churches. Your support enables IM to offer support to partner organizations like Hungarian Baptist Aid, which now manages 49 schools in Hungary. In addition to regular curriculum, these schools provide English classes and after-school Bible classes.

In addition to our contribution to the World Mission Offering general fund, one-third of our October offering goes each to: Dan and Sarah Chetti who serve at the Baptist Theological Seminary and the Center for Ministry for Migrant Domestic Workers in Beirut, Lebanon and Dan Buttry, Global Consultant for Peace and Justice.

To date we have received $353 toward our goal of $850.
