From Zero to 169

It seems we struggle to grow missions discipleship organizations. Getting people to participate in ongoing meetings is a challenge. Here is a very simple idea to go from zero to 169 participants in less than a year. Ask 12 friends to join you in starting an Adults on Mission ministry group to impact your community.

Purchase a Gifts of Hope Ministry Set and get started. If you have 13 people in your small group, everyone contributes about $10. For $125, you receive a Gifts of Hope Ministry Set to put in a high traffic area within your community such as the office of a lawyer, doctor, dentist, chiropractor, veterinary, a diagnostic testing center, food pantry, clothes closet, even an auto repair service shop or tire store waiting room. The possibilities are endless.

Engage in Missions through WMU

Whether you are seeking to serve in missions personally, as a family, or as a church, we have plenty of exciting options for you! Here are just a few of many ways you can live out of the gospel through WMU:

2017 WMU Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting

Defining Moments

In times of reflection, they come to mind . . .  those defining moments when you sensed God at work in your life. A decision, a marriage, a birth or death . . . in good times and challenging ones, God is conforming us to the image of Christ. Hear from missionaries and others as they share of God’s faithfulness and consider your own defining moments that have uniquely equipped you to serve others and share Christ.


Save the date for an amazing celebration of what God is doing around the world through missions! Come early to the SBC Annual Meeting in Phoenix and join us for the WMU Missions Celebration!

 

Dates:

June 11–12, 2017

Mother's Day Giveaway

WMU Mother's Day Giveaway - wmu.com

We can all agree that being a mom is a tough job. It is rewarding, tiring, sometimes thankless, often messy, and always beautiful. Have you ever thought of motherhood as a mission field? Moms (and dads, too!) are raising tiny humans who grow into adult humans who are--hopefully!--becoming more and more like Christ each day.

So, to the women who are on the ongoing missions trip called motherhood, we want to celebrate you! We are giving away a Mother’s Day-themed prize pack for you or a wonderful, deserving mom in your life. The basket includes:

Christmas in August

Families on Mission

WMU has developed resources that can help your family reach out to others.

Where Do the Animals Live?

Print out the page. Guide your child to draw a line from the animal to its habitat. You can search for "Guatemala wildlife facts" online to find out more about these animals and others in Guatemala.

Say: Look at the wonderful things God made (see Job 37:14). These animals live in Guatemala where Mr. and Mrs. White are missionaries.
