On Saturday the 11th of March, 110 folks gathered at Lone Oak Baptist Church in West Point for the organization of new association of churches. The New Hope Hispanic Baptist Missionary Association was organized to encourage and facility BMA of Mississippi Hispanic Churches to work together to do the work of missions. The Hispanic churches and missions remain committed to working as a part of the BMA of Mississippi State Association but hope to increase their emphasis on Hispanic mission by creating another opportunity to cooperate in carrying out the biblical mandate. The meeting included the election of officers, the seating of messengers, worship, and the planning of their next meeting which will be September 30, 2017 in Meridian, MS. Bro. Estuardo Marroquin was elected to serve as the first Moderator of this Association with Bro. Byron Morales, serving as Treasurer and Ms. Rogelia Regalado serving as the Clerk.

An average of 35 children and 15 adults attended VBS and fun and fellowship was enjoyed by all. This was the first Vacation Bible School conducted by Caledonia Baptist since the Mission began in 2012. Pastor Bob Burch made himself available for the popular dunking tank which was one of a number of fun activities. Caledonia Baptist has also begun the construction of the second phase of their building which includes education and fellowship space. Construction will continue through the summer with completion sometime in September.

South Forrest Baptist Mission hosted the first of what they hope will be an annual event to equip folks to witness and share the gospel. Missionary Sidney Farmer coordinated the instructional and hands on training in Evangelism Explosion through the Baptist Missionary Association of America Theological Seminary. Thirty people participated, 100 contacts were made during the training and 20 full presentations of the gospel were given. The training, led by Dr. Phillip Attebery, Dean of BMATS, and Dr. Charley Holmes, President of the BMATS, was uniquely tailored to include adults and children. Among those who participated in the training are two men who serve on the board of trustees for the seminary; Dennis Knight, Pastor of Paramount Baptist Church, and Ted Quinby, Member of Midway First Baptist in Sumrall.
This marks the third time that Dr. Holmes and Dr. Atteberry have come to Mississippi to conduct Evangelism Explosion training. The first time was in Mantachie, then, later in Clinton and now at South Forrest. We are grateful to these men for the sacrifice of time made to invest in the lives of others.
Missionary Farmer and people from South Forrest Mission have been involved in the training each time it has been conducted. Evangelism training is an essential part of the overall Discipleship training that Missionary Farmer continues to emphasize as crucial to church planting.

Grace Baptist Mission at Clinton Closes on Land

For almost two years Grace Baptist Mission, in Clinton, has been working to secure land for a future permanent location. During this time they have relocated to a different temporary meeting facility and tried, unsuccessfully, to secure a piece of land on Pinehaven Drive. Finally, after almost two years, thirteen acres has been purchased on Clinton-Tenan Road and City use approval has been acquired. Now, as the Mission continues to grow, they have something to look forward to. Praise the Lord!
