Engaging Tough Areas of West Virginia
[West Virginia] MATT and CHRISSY SHAMBLIN serve in West Virginia, where Matt serves as an evangelism missionary for the West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists. Matt helps churches engage their communities with the gospel. Many churches in West Virginia are smaller than average churches elsewhere. It is also a place of great physical need. Your gifts help the Shamblins share Christ in a very difficult area of North America. Pray that pastors in West Virginia will persevere through tough circumstances. Also, pray for new churches to be planted in the state and that existing churches would have a renewed commitment to engage their community with the gospel.

Bringing Millennials to Christ
[Wisconsin] CARL GRIFFIN was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When he was 4 years old, his mother moved them to Mississippi where Carl, at the age of 10, accepted Christ as his Savior. Today he and his wife, LINDA, serve in Milwaukee focusing primarily on bringing millennials to Christ. In 2012, Carl planted New Life Baptist Church in a racially diverse, middle-income neighborhood. Their vision is to “make disciples the way Jesus does.” New members spend the first six months in discipleship training and are then assigned to a small group for continued discipleship and disciple making training. Pray God will continue to grow New Life, and support the efforts in Wisconsin by giving through the Cooperative Program.
