Surprise First Task in Whiteville

by Mark Nolden | September 25, 2023 4:12 PM

Before starting our planned mission work this morning we were able to assist with loading totes of food for school children.  The Columbus Baptist Association preps these totes which are then taken to schools to help feed kids on the weekends.  540 children are blessed with this every weekend at 15 different schools.

See you at the Pole

Tuesday afternoon we were asked to help at Columbus Christian School.  They did not have a flag pole and  Wednesday is See You At The Pole day.  We got the flagpole installed so the students could gather at it to pray this morning.
