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.

January, 2019 Message from Carolyn

Christmas Store Report from RCFN:
26 churches in the Richmond area contributed gifts to the 3 Centers.
126 volunteers helped setup or assist shoppers.
151 families shopped .
316 children received gifts .
Thanks go out to Allen Wright, who helped me deliver and setup the gifts. The delivery was a mutual effort with Woodland Heights. They collected clothing and toys and helped load them into Allen’s car. Both churches were blessed through this mission activity. And we look forward to a combined effort in the future. Each church remains separate in their assignments but we work together in seeing the gifts delivered.
Our December assignment was to provide bus tickets. We gave 25 tickets to
Oregon Hill Center.
Our January assignment is to contribute money for the laundry service that St. Andrews Episcopal Church partners with us. (The cost of detergents and wash/dry is approximately $4 per load. A typical month serves an average of 60 loads. We are contributing $240 to cover the cost of one month.)
Financial support to our mission efforts is greatly appreciated.
Physical support/participation in any/all activities is even more welcomed because it exposes you (the participant) to a blessing you may never have known. Make a promise to yourself in the New Year (2019) that you will physically be involved in one mission activity that reaches beyond writing a check. (Packing a Snack Pack; a bag of groceries; knitting a scarf, a hat for the homeless; serving a meal to the homeless.)
God has been SO good to us. How can we say, “Thank you?”
Carolyn
