Resolution On Migrant Farm Workers

WHEREAS, Migrant farm worker families ordinarily have annual incomes which are substantially below the national poverty level; and

WHEREAS, Migrant farm workers frequently live in homes devoid of sewerage, running water, and other standard necessities; and

WHEREAS, Numerous highly communicable diseases and serious states of malnutrition occur among such farm workers with frequencies greatly in excess of national average rates;

Therefore be it RESOLVED, That we commend efforts by those among our number who, having recognized the special and desperate needs of these workers, are attempting to minister to them in ways that reflect the love and concern of our compassionate Lord; and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we commit ourselves as individuals, to enhance these efforts by seeking and providing additional creative ministries that meet the total human needs of migrant farm workers, and

Be it further RESOLVED, That we urge all appropriate Baptist agencies and commissions to explore further effective ways of presenting to these brethren the Good News of abundant life in Christ Jesus.
