COLVILLE, Wash.—First Baptist Church served on a missions trip to Missionary Acres, a retirement community in Missouri for missionaries and pastors. “What an honor to serve them after all of their years of selfless giving,” says Kris Baker, a member of the missions team.

From Sept. 21 to 25 the eight-member team completed construction and maintenance projects at the retirement community. Projects included building a shed, installing siding on several buildings, repairing a vehicle, cutting down a dead tree, and remodeling an apartment.

“If you are wondering if God can you use in missions, the answer is YES,” Kris says. “It has been very cool to see how each one of us has brought skills to the table this week. If we didn’t know how to do something, we learned and worked away.”
