August 30, 2012
Calvary Baptist Church, Russellville, returned July 16 from a missions trip in San Cayetano, Nicaragua, organized through Concern for the World, an evangelistic association founded by Gene Williams.
The 18-member group left July 9, taking duffel bags full of reading glasses, flip-flops and gifts for children.
The team stayed in a house in nearby Managua and traveled into San Cayetano by bus. During the day some members installed electrical fixtures and windows in a Baptist church building while others visited houses and schools to share the gospel and held a children’s activity day.
For two evenings they screened parts of the movie “Courageous” in the town square and Calvary Baptist Pastor Wade Wallace preached. After they finished setting up electricity in the church the team held a final screening to finish the movie in the church and had two more services.
Over the course of the week 352 people signed cards saying they had accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior.
