2. Family Missions Opportunity

Families are important to the work of bringing God glory.  Even the Trinity has a father/son relationship.  We are working on putting together a short-term family mission to help an SDB ministry in Guyana or one of the Caribbean islands this summer.

Some Seventh Day Baptists in Shiloh, NJ are interested in exposing their three children, ages between 7 – 10 years old, to international ministry work and we are hoping other families would consider joining this effort of cross cultural mission experience.
