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.
Unity in the Body [South Africa] One hundred and fifty believers gathered in a small
Baptist church. Although racially-motivated attacks were tearing
their city apart, they stood together to ask God to bring peace. An
elder called out the ethnic groups by name: white South African,
Zulu, Xhosa and a dozen more. Everyone stood—black and white,
young and old—joining hands across the aisles and singing together,
“We are one in the Spirit.” “It was beautiful,” said IMB worker, ROSE
SHEPHARD.* “We saw beautiful unity within the body of Christ today.”
Thank you for giving through the Cooperative Program so workers
like Rose can point others to a God who unifies.

Jesus is the Only Way [Oregon] JOSH CARTER serves in Portland, a cutting-edge city that is directing
the course of culture. Some Portlanders call their home the new Sin
City, as evidenced by the fact they now have more strip clubs per capita
than any other city in the U.S. Most residents claim no religious affiliation
and are tolerant of any and all religions, but are opposed to the idea of an
exclusive way to heaven. It has been said there are more Christians in India
per capita than there are in Portland. Your support through the Cooperative
Program can help change that. Pray for Josh’s team as they seek
church partners and strong relationships in their community to share Jesus.
