We are commanded by Christ in Matthew 28:19,20 to "go into all the world..." These are some of the areas where you can think about donating time and resources to make a global impact on the Kingdom.
A team from First Baptist Church will be traveling to the Transylvanian region of Romania October 11-18, 2017. Pastor Nico Gatea and his wife Caprice currently oversee four churches, a large feeding and outreach program for children and a growing orphanage. Pastor Nico also teaches Bible in the public school system. The team will come alongside and serve in this 24/7 ministry to a people who have survived with no hope under post Communist rule and in severe poverty.
A few individuals from our church family have visited China to conduct vocational and language missions. These have included medical training, evangelism and classes for English as a second language. These witnessing opportunities are more relational.
A team of missionaries from First Baptist Church of Corpus Christi in conjunction with South Texas Children's Home Ministries and a few other churches in our area are working through TIME ministries on the island to provide medical clinics and VBS activities with children. General medical needs were met and prescriptions and wellness/nutrition advice was provided. The ministry with the children was equally fulfilling and helpful for the people of the Dominican.

Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, the international Christian relief organization headed by Franklin Graham. Every October, children, families, and groups from FBC fill empty shoe boxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, photos, and personal letters.
Operation Christmas Child then delivers them around the world to children suffering from poverty, war, disease, disaster and terrorism. Hundreds of shoeboxes are filled and wrapped to be distributed across the world.
Help FBC make a difference in the lives of children.
