The core philosophy of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship’s Global Missions Program is that Christians are called to live and work alongside the neglected, forgotten and marginalized peoples of the world, sharing the love of Christ and helping to meet physical needs as well as spiritual needs. First Baptist Greenville is fortunate to have ties to three groups of CBF field personnel living out this mission. This week, please take some time to get to know their stories and pray for them and those they serve. Consider making a gift to the Lula Whilden World Missions Offering, which supports these field personnel by supporting CBF.
