It is a busy summer for Kentucky WMU. Camp staff training takes places this week with our first campers coming in one week. Campers will be going on a “Missions Safari” as they learn about missions in Africa. Our first Kentucky Changers project begins Saturday in Hopkinsville with 220 participants expected and 18 projects planned. Overnights at Jonathan Creek will provide a camping experience for girls in Western Kentucky and over 200 volunteers are expected for Familyfest in 19-25 in Boone’s Creek Association. Boys will learn about Teamwork during Camp Courage and Excel training for WMU leaders will take place in three locations this summer.
Remember that the Eliza Broadus Offering will be at work in these WMU sponsored missions activities as well as through the many ministries of Kentucky missionaries over the summer. Pray for children and families to be saved, teenagers to grow in their faith, and for new missions commitments to take place. We are on the road again. Go with us in prayer!
