Dear Friends and Family,
We wanted to let you know of an exciting adventure we hope to take in February of 2017. Many of you know that we have begun building relationships and ministry with the people of Sendafa, Ethiopia. Pastor Mike and Sandy will be be traveling to Ethiopia again February 15-27, 2017. Sandy plans on working in the His Healing Hands clinic, serving the thousands of Ethiopians in Sendafa Ethiopia. Sendafa has a population of around 20,000 people most of whom do not have access to health care.
Pastor Mike will teach and disciple the church leaders there is Sendafa. Over the last 3 years, he has developed a great relationship with the local church and their Pastor, Lemma Asfaw. We have begun financially supporting Pastor Lemma and his family so that he can devote his time to teaching, preaching, and sharing the Gospel with the people of Sendafa.
We are thrilled at the possibility of returning to Sendafa and caring for these dear people both spiritually and physically.
We have been humbled in the past by how much you, our friends and family, and prayed for us and financially supported us in these adventures. We have felt your prayers many times over. Your generous financial support in the name of Jesus has enabled us to go.
Please pray for us as we seek to walk in the Will of God in your service and ministry to Sendafa, Ethiopia. Your prayers are crucial.
If God leads, please consider financially supporting this trip to Ethiopia.

A way to connect, love, learn and serve within the body of Christ.
Let’s face it. Getting to know people can be hard work. Relationships take time and yet when we make the effort to connect with others we are blessed and so are they.
First Baptist Church wants to help you connect with other people within our body to help you love, learn, serve, pray, and care for one another. The best way to do this is through our T360 Small Groups. If you desire to be part of one of these Transformation Groups or just want more information, please fill out the form on this site or contact email@example.com
