The Cooperative Program is Southern Baptists’ unified plan of giving through which cooperating Southern Baptist churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of their respective state convention and the Southern Baptist Convention missions and ministries.
Conversation about the Gospel [South Asia] Rabia, an 18-year-old woman in Pakistan, told a Christian worker that her husband and her in-laws had left her. She is a mother of two and completely destitute. She considers giving her newborn to someone who can care for her. Rabia’s hopeless story led to a conversation about the gospel and the loving care of our Father God. None of her pain or injustice happens without His knowledge. Jesus knows the plight of Rabia and her children, and He came into this sinful, broken world to offer hope. Pray for God’s mercy on Rabia and that gifts through the Cooperative Program give families in Pakistan the chance to know the hope of Jesus.

Reaching Seafarers in Hawaii [Hawaii] Before serving as a Southern Baptist missionary, CHRIS EVANS worked in strategic fisheries research. During that time God gave him a heart for commercial fishermen. Today Chris and JILL Evans serve through Seafarers Church Ministry at Honolulu Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. The ministry reaches out to crew members by providing physical and practical help, caring for emotional and family needs and providing pastoral care. In the first 18 months of the ministry, 22 people came to faith in Jesus. Chris thanks you for your Cooperative Program support of this ministry. He asks you to pray for their ministry to Vietnamese fishermen and to provide Bibles for them in their language.
