Janie Chapman Missions Offering – How Your Gift Helps – #1

The Janie Chapman Missions Offering is a vital tool to help fund Missions in and through South Carolina. Every year in September, SC Baptist Churches are asked to pray for SC Missions and consider giving to this special offering.

Each of the posts about the Janie Chapman Missions Offering will share some aspect of how the Janie Chapman funds are used.  As you read over these posts consider how God is working in and through SC Baptists, and how you can be a part of that.

On Sunday, September 15, Rocky Creek will collect our offering for Janie Chapman.  Over the past several years, RC has collected an average of about $2000.  As you pray, consider if $2000 is enough for RC to give.

SERVE:  HUNGER MINISTRIES PAVE THE WAY

“Words can never thank you enough for reminding me that God loves me and has great plans for me. You see, I was homeless, living in the woods with no food, no hope, and freezing cold in the winter.” These words of testimony were written to Operation Care last year in a four-page letter of thanks for this ministry.

“One morning a lady named Lori came and woke me up and said … she would take me somewhere that I could get help… When we arrived, a lady named Martha came out, hugged me, and said ‘You are freezing. Come in, get warm, and eat a snack.’ She held my face in her hands and said what would change my life forever. ‘Honey, God loves you and so do I.’”

“That single act of kindness has changed my life,” says Anita Bricker. Through the ministry of Operation Care, Anita has been reunited with her family, gone back to college, and remained drug free.  Janie Chapman funds help to support hunger ministries such as Operation Care.
