On the leading edge of the modern missionary movement, Baptists have been forming together, making disciples of all nations through long-term presence and commitment to serve the most forgotten and forsaken people around the world. The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship engages in three primary contexts: Global Poverty, Global Migration, and the Global Church, spreading the love of Christ in 30 countries across the globe. Through the work of CBF field personnel and Together for Hope, CBF’s rural poverty initiative, Cooperative Baptists are bringing renewal to God’s world through ministries that transform lives and extend the hope of Christ.
The CBF Offering for Global Missions is the primary source of support ensuring the long-term presence of field personnel around the world — funding salaries, benefits, housing costs and children’s educational needs. The Offering engages churches and individuals in faith and action through giving, Bible Study, prayer, mission projects and celebration.
Here at Woodland, we support The Offering by providing envelopes of different amounts so each person who attends Woodland can participate. Children can take a $1 (or more) envelope and participate. Students can take mid-range amounts. And adults can take the larger amounts. Our goal is not only $40,000 but also for every person at Woodland to participate. What will your investment in CBF mission efforts around the world be?
Woodland also supports three families serving with CBF and one serving with SIM USA. Our support for each family includes prayer, financial gifts of $350 per month and possibly a visit. Find out more about the Offering for Global Missions at woodlandsa.org/ogm.

Erik & Amanda Hansen and their four children serve in Kijabe, Kenya, through SIM USA. They are involved in the training of doctors who serve the people of Africa. Amanda is the daughter of Bill & Becky Miller, long time members of WBC. In 2008, Erik and Amanda felt God calling them to Africa. God led them to Kijabe Hospital where the Bethany Kids Pediatric Surgery program provides surgical care to newborns through adolescents. Erik is training African pediatric surgeons, in an African context, so that the work of caring for the surgical needs of children in East Africa can be multiplied. uncommonroad.blogspot.com
