FBC On MissionAnnie Armstrong Easter Offering
Why Give to Annie Armstrong? Because three of four people in North America are lost. One hundred percent of dollars given to the AAEO go to support thousands of missionaries and their ministries in the United States and Canada.
Kevin Ezell, president of the North American Mission Board, urges prayer and financial support for Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers who are "connecting the help with the hope" in providing meals, clearing debris and otherwise ministering to victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Disaster Relief: Hurricane Sandy
Mission to India October 18 - 30
Eight members of First Baptist McDonough will go to South India on a Medical and Evangelism mission in October. They will be working with a NAMB missionary family already on-site in India, traveling to rural areas where basic health care is non-existent. Prayers and monetary support are necessary for this mission to bear fruit for the Kingdom!
Following is an excerpt from a letter to FBC McDonough from the missionary:
"The area that I cover is, in many places, desperately poor, with little or no infrastructure to address the needs of the huge population. Healthcare is terrible, and many people suffer and die from easily treatable illnesses. I find this type of thing difficult to accept, as these deaths are horribly unnecessary, and so many die without knowing our Lord. This is especially true in the rural villages where so many of our partner church plants are struggling to minister while, at the same time, serving the needs of those around them.
"While talking with some of these pastors, we formulated a plan, which has borne tremendous fruit in the past. Mobile medical clinics draw huge numbers of villagers, and can treat hundreds of patients every day. Additionally, using these small churches to host such clinics will bring locals to the groups of believers in their area, and gives us a chance to share the Gospel with people who are having their physical needs met, addressing their spiritual needs as well. Not only does this provide some essential healthcare for these poverty stricken villages, but in the past, it has also led to tremendous growth in local churches."
