Students share Christmas hope across the world


For many college students, Christmas time is when they flee cramped dorm rooms and hours of studying to enjoy some relaxing time back at home with family and friends. But this Christmas, more than 30 college students from all over the state will be leaving the comfort of home to serve with Go Now Missions, the student missions arm of Texas Baptists, to share the Christmas story and the hope of Christ with people in Texas and around the world.

Teams will be serving at various times Dec. 11 to Jan. 9. Some will place warm boots on orphans’ feet in Moldova. A couple will share the hope of Christmas over coffee in the Middle East. Others will hike through Nicaragua camping in small, remote villages to help with church planting. Another group will host English corners to meet students in East Asia. More will prayer walk and practice English with locals in a North African city. Still others will work on the World Hunger Relief Farm in Texas or meet physical needs through helping with apartment ministries and food pantries at Mission Arlington.

These students go in the name of Christ knowing that they have a story to tell that will change lives. While they are away, several will be blogging here about their experiences. I hope their stories will touch your heart as you read about God working in and through them to spread His story and glory. Please join me in praying during the next month for these students who are eagerly being obedient to the call God has placed on their lives.
