Women's Missionary Union - Missions in Action
Led by Carolyn Keller

Virginia Baptist missions were named for Alma Hunt, known world-wide for her mission service.  Here at Southampton, we designate those offerings to our Mary Burke Fund.  Mary and her husband, Dr. Kenneth Burke, were members of Southampton years ago and Mary was a faithful worker in our WMU.  Carolyn Keller leads our mission now and regularly organizes goods and services to benefit the South Richmond Baptist Center, Church Hill Christian Wellness Center, Oregon Hill Baptist Center, VCU Bapist Center, African Christian Community Church, Camp Alkulana in Millboro, Virginia among other worthy organizations and peoples.

December, 2017 MESSAGE FROM CAROLYN

Thank you for your physical and monetary support of our mission work this past year. We have been able to fulfill our assignments to the RCFN and have given additional support of clothing and food to our Baptist Centers. As we swim forward into a new ocean in 2018, we pray you will still be there. I only wish each of you could join me in the JOY of delivering the gifts.
After delivering the Christmas Store gifts on December 4, I will purchase bus tickets for the recipients at the South Richmond Centers which is our December assignment.
Looking forward into 2018,we are assigned to provide the Thursday Meal for the homeless on Jan 18.
I will provide the meal, but I need some “man power’ to help serve the meal (3-4 people). Your role of “serving” would only involve your sitting or standing to distribute a bowl of soup, a pack of crackers, a grilled cheese sandwich, and a pre-packaged dessert.
My other need is for freezer space. Since I will no longer have the church freezer, I will need a place to store food in advance….80 grilled cheese sandwiches ? Can someone supply that space or perhaps 4 people can handle 20 ? Or what do you suggest?
Please remember that our mission work is YOUR heart. I am only the hands and feet. I can only walk where YOU direct me. And God directs all of us.
I love and trust HIS word and that you will hear HIM as to how you can be a valuable contributor. I will pray for HIS guidance and help with our discernment.
To God be the glory.
Carolyn
