UBA MCH Updates July 2016
With the end of summer quickly approaching we give praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the incredible things He’s done this summer. Over the past eight weeks our staff trained and worked with our college-aged summer missionaries from Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi and Texas to make a Gospel impact in the communities we serve through MCH.
Whether it was through prayer walking, community outreach, daily kids and youth clubs, senior citizens programs, homebound visitation, providing childcare during Bible studies, food pantry distribution or doing repairs and maintenance many people were blessed by their enthusiasm, smiles and heart for the Lord.
They’ve prayed for people’s needs, held their hands when they were hurting, shared the hope of Christ with them and brought joy to those who needed it. Not only were our communities and our ministry staff impacted by their selfless service but our summer missionaries also learned valuable leadership skills as they were given the opportunity to lead several youth groups in the same ministries.
They also chaperoned 20 students from the community who were given scholarships to attend an Urban Initiative camp at Stony Creek Ranch. One of our summer missionaries had the chance to counsel with a middle school student as she surrendered her life to Jesus and accept Him as Lord and Savior. All of the youth came back changed by the love God poured out on them during their time there.
As we look to the fall we are excited to see how the Lord will continue building upon the work that was done through MCH this summer. We value your prayers and support as we continue working in our Father’s fields.

UBA MCH Summer Missionaries
Every summer the UBA MCH welcomes a new group of summer missionaries to serve as interns throughout the summer. The summer interns work hard, are deeply committed to missions, learn a lot about service, and bless a lot of kids along the way. This group just returned from a few days at camp.
You can help keep these smiles bright by providing one meal for the group during these remaining days of July. Please ask your Sunday school classes, small groups or even co-workers if they would like to help out. Arranging and taking a meal for 25 is the very best way because you get to meet the interns. But if that's not possible, you can provide cash or gift cards to furnish a meal: it takes $150 to provide a lunch or $200 to provide a dinner.
