Mission Bite #81: The Blessing of Partnership

"Partnerships are one of the great blessings and encouragements to field personnel! We gain extra hands and feet to do the labor, and we are visited in our communities, where we often feel isolated. A team from First Baptist Church of Griffin, Georgia, recently traveled 7 hours to Conetoe to lead a Literacy Fair for families. The children, parents and grandparents read together, played games, painted bookshelves to take home, chose new books to take with them, and loved talking with the members of the mission team. The team also worked in the garden, cleaned out a training center, and organized books and supplies at another center. They spent time getting to know us better, eating with us, encouraging us, and showing us so much love. We are so thankful for our partners!"
