October Benevolence – World Mission Offering
Each year, the World Mission Offering (WMO) casts a spotlight on a different part of the world – giving American Baptists a personal, front row seat to the powerful ministries that are changing lives for Christ around the globe. This year, WMO is excited to share the spiritual revival happening in Baptist churches right now in CUBA! Cuba’s spitual awakening – and the many other amazing things God is doing around the world – are exciting testimonies that “with God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
