RIVERSIDE GOES INTERNATIONAL 2014 (Riverside)
On Wednesday night July 9th, RHMC went international – at least for the evening! Brother Todd Rentz of Red Springs shared some of his experiences from the mission field with a group of about 60 children and adults. He emphasized the fact that missions starts at home – if you are not serving the Lord in your local community, you should not expect to serve Him abroad. Rentz illustrated this point through his own life. He shared with the group how his local church has developed several ministries that are reaching out to the Red Springs community as well as to all of Robeson County. He told the group of an 80 year old woman in Clio, S.C. who wanted to have an impact on world missions. She got a group of elder woman together and made prayer crosses to be given out on mission trips. As each cross is made, the women pray for those who will receive the cross. To date, over 40,000 crosses have been distributed worldwide! He went on to tell the group about his mission trips to Kenya, West Africa and Nicaragua, South America. The teams he serves on provide several services including medical assistance, construction services, VBS programs, etc. One ministry that he emphasized was his teams' involvement with the water purification project in Nicaragua, South America. This project provides individual purification systems to families who otherwise would have to drink bacteria plagued water. For the cost of a dinner and a movie, a family can be provided with clean drinking water for several years. He concluded his presentation by giving each member of Riverside a prayer cross – each one hand-made and prayed over by the Clio Ladies Group. The evening ended with an ice cream social allowing for a time of questions and fellowship with Brother Rentz.
Changing the World (Union Chapel)
On July 14, 2014, Union Chapel Holiness Methodist Church had the opportunity to travel to Brunswick, Georgia on a mission trip with the organization World Changers. They joined more than 220 teens from across the nation to devote their selves for one week to work on various projects throughout the city. The group stayed at Northside Baptist Church. The groups worked on roofs, painting, demolition, putting up siding, carpentry, and other projects. The children also had opportunity to witness to the homeowners and the neighbors. Each night the children had devotion and worship at the church. The children worked hard and met a lot of new friends. They were happy to learn more about Jesus and helping the people of Brunswick Georgia. Special thanks to Brother Willie Scott for being a Crew Leader, Sister Jackie G. Deese for being a Crew Encourager, Brother Chester Sutherland for being an Adult Volunteer and Sister Rene Locklear for being a runner for our group. We would also like to thank our church, family and community for sponsoring us on our trip. We thank God for his blessings on this trip.
