Southside Baptist Church, Decatur, on missioncomment (0)
February 23, 2012
Berry Terry, who directs the missions efforts of Southside Baptist Church, Decatur, led a team of 13 to Belmopan, Belize, Jan. 21–29.
The team was composed of 11 current and former members of the Morgan Baptist Association church and two members of Safe Haven Church in Tuscaloosa.
It led a spiritual emphasis week at Belize Vo-Tech, a Christian boarding school for boys ages 14–17. Each day consisted of 16 Bible lessons, recreation and a revival service. Two men also worked on small construction projects like plumbing and electrical repairs and installing a water heater at the school.
This was Southside Baptist’s sixth missions trip to the school, and Terry said the last two trips were the best because of the involvement with the boys. The previous four trips were strictly construction trips.
During this trip, eight boys made decisions for Christ, which is “what it’s all about,” Terry said. “It can’t get any better than that.”
Southside plans to return next year to encourage the new believers and continue to share the gospel.
