As a leader in the modern missionary movement, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship seeks to build beloved community, bear witness to Jesus Christ and to seek transformational development among communities and people otherwise forgotten. Field personnel serve alongside congregations within three primary contexts—global poverty, global migration and the global church. CBF is currently supporting 120 long-term field personnel in over 25 countries, 50 Student.Go interns and 100s of short-term mission teams with the help of funding from the Lula Whilden mission offering.
Carson and Laura Foushee serve as CBF field personnel to Japan in partnership with the Japan Baptist Convention in Tokyo. The Foushees serve alongside JBC churches in Toyama and Kanazawa by leading English ministries in both congregations. They both regularly preach through translation and lead English bible studies as well as build community through English classes and camps for Japanese families. The Foushees are preparing for a five-month trip back home to the United States and will be our guest speakers at MidWeek Fellowship on Wednesday, February 5. To learn more about Carson and Laura and other CBF field personnel, go to https://cbf.net/field-personnel.
Please remember that the Foushees, along with the other CBF field personnel, the Alliance of Baptists and CBFSC are all directly impacted by our generosity and support. Lula Whilden donations can be made through the end of the year. No amount is too small to be put towards these worthy causes.
