MIDDLE EAST – We Southern Baptists partner together in many ways to minister to needs. One of our Southern Baptist chaplains in the U.S. Army, Chaplain Scott Yawn, tells how partnership helped him a year ago when he was serving in the Middle East during a blazing hot summer. He let Southern Baptists know that they needed some popsicles to give to the soldiers as a little break from the heat. Word got around to many of the churches. Chaplain Yawn was amazed when thousands of popsicles came pouring in from churches back in America. Many of them came with cards or letters offering encouragement and support, which made the frozen treat even sweeter. Folks, when we work together for Christ, we can do anything. We can even ship popsicles to the desert!
Today, can we pray for Chaplain Yawn and his ministry with our brave military men and women? Our Cooperative Program dollars support our North American Mission Board, which endorses and supports more than 3,600 of our Southern Baptist chaplains.
