Salem-Troy Baptist Association on missioncomment (0)
April 22, 2010
Averyt Walker, director of missions for Salem-Troy Baptist Association, was part of a planned missions trip to the Dominican Republic (DR) Feb. 1–8.
But once Haiti was struck by a 7.0 earthquake Jan. 12, the team of 22 divided into two groups — one to do missions work in Haiti and one to do missions work in Santo Domingo, the capital city of the DR.
The DR team of 11 people, which Walker oversaw, worked closely with Dominican Baptists by encouraging existing churches and helping with the planting of future churches.
The team led Bible studies for children, women and men; prayer walked; did door-to-door evangelism in neighborhoods; delivered Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes; and showed Christian-based movies in the evenings.
