UGANDA HUMAN NEEDS EVANGELISM PROJeCT
(Specific September Dates Coming Soon)
Vision: The team will use Mama Kits, food, animal husbandry, and BGR Buckets for Aids patients to share Christ and encourage church planting.
Project Description: Uganda has endured some of the worst atrocities over the past 30 years that has created a human crisis beyond measure. Many churches and Christian Organizations have been working to help orphans, single moms, hunger, aids patients, and other desperate human needs to share the love of Christ.
Along with representatives of the International Mission Board, Central has made several trips into Uganda with amazing results by meeting some of the human needs and sharing Christ. Volunteers have given Mama Kits, which is a bundle of sterile items that they would carry with them to the clinic or a mid-wife to have their baby, from bedding, towels, soap, and other necessary items. While doing this they share the simple gospel in story form. They saw over 125 baptisms with 600 individuals making the decision to follow Jesus last year. The response to Christ is amazing!
The team will give Mama Kits, visit orphanages, schools, give animals, food and BGR buckets to share Christ to the people working with Ugandan Pastors that have been trained in the Baptist Seminary of Uganda. These men will follow up on those that make decisions for Christ.

Poland English Camp
January 17 - 26, 2020
Mission: Plan and host an English Camp for older children, teenagers and adults for the purpose of developing relationships with them and sharing the gospel with them.
Overview: Central Baptist Church has been working with Chuck and Vikki Franks in Northeast Poland for over 10 years. The Franks were called to Poland as full-time missionaries after their first volunteer trip to Poland in 2008. Poland is an European country with strong economic growth and development. The country has a strong Roman Catholic culture and heritage. Almost everyone claims to be a Catholic, and they see the road to salvation as one of good deeds, sacraments, and following Mary. Salvation is something to be earned for them. They do not believe it is possible to have a relationship with God or even know God. It is estimated that only about 1 in 1,000 Poles is a true believer, trusting in Jesus.
The Franks live in a region with about 300,000 people and only one evangelical church in the whole area. They are working with a team of local believers to start two new churches in the Eastern part of this region. These churches, once they are formed, will then work to bring the gospel to other cities in the region and plant other evangelical churches which will further evangelize the region. Some of these cities include: Ilawa, Lubawa, Brodnica, Susz, Nowe Miasto, and Grudziaz. The team of 9 believers also includes Marcin a local pastor.
Specifics: The team of 12 (+/-) will plan and host English camps for older children, youth and adults during the January school holiday. All Polish children have English every year in school, so some speak English very well, while others struggle. Adults who are less than 40 had English in school also. One of the best paths to better jobs and better pay is to be proficient in English. Thus, free English conversation with native speakers is usually a good draw for adults and children. The camp will be conducted at the local school. One camp in the morning will be aimed at older children and teenagers. That camp will include games, songs, activities, English conversation and other fun things to do with children. There will be a time of testimony and a Bible story also. The second camp will be in the evenings. It will be aimed at whole families and adults. The camp will include games, songs, and activities for children and have games and English conversation for the adults. Each day will have a different theme. In the afternoon there will be some free time and a chance to meet one on one with new friends from camp.
Logistics: The team will leave Jonesboro on the 17th of January and arrive in Poland on the 18th. They will attend a local church on the 19th, and camp will be Monday to Friday. They will have a free day for touring Gdansk on Saturday the 25th and return to Jonesboro on Sunday the 26th.
Price: $600 plus the cost of airfare. The $600 includes in-country food, housing, and transportation per person. Does not include meals en route to and from the field of service in airports and to and from airports. Application plus 10% deposit required before team airline reservations can be made.
