St. Clair Baptist Association Woman’s Missionary Union director Helen Jackson was among the group of 11 that traveled to work with Mission Hope for Kids in Elizabethtown, Ky., June 23–29.
The group was composed of members from First Baptist Church, Moody; First Baptist Church, Pell City; First Baptist Church, Ashville; and Greensport Baptist Church, Ashville.
In Kentucky they ministered to inner-city children and their families by distributing 75–100 bags of food staples, handing out 125 packs of hygiene items, organizing a backyard Bible club and hosting a block party for more than 200 families.
Inner-city children were bused in for the backyard Bible club, where they were taught God’s Word and fed a meal. More than 135 children were reached through this ministry.
This trip would not have been possible without the churches from St. Clair Association that collected the food staples and hygiene items dispensed, Jackson said, which filled a U-Haul trailer.
Plans are being made to return with a group of youth during this year’s fall break.
