Women Meet for Fellowship, Service in the Sunshine State

Alden and Marie Wightman of Amazing Grace Baptist Church, St. Cloud, Fla.

LAKELAND, Fla.—Fellowship Baptist Church hosted the spring meeting of the Sunshine State Ladies’ Fellowship.

Lisa Brock was the featured speaker. She is director of women’s ministries for Reaching and Teaching International Ministries, where her husband, Peter, is director of missionary services. Many of the ladies are familiar with Lisa from the years she and Peter ministered at Faith Baptist Church in Winter Haven, Florida, where he was a member of the pastoral staff.

The Sunshine State Ladies Fellowship takes on an annual missions project. In 2017, the women raised funds for solar panels to provide electricity for a Christian school in Haiti. The focus this year is Amazing Grace Baptist Church in St. Cloud, Florida, a work with Continental Baptist Missions. The Ladies’ Fellowship hopes to supply a laptop, a projector, and a room divider. The women gave Amazing Grace a generous gift and will conclude their project when they meet at Maranatha Baptist Church, Sebring, Florida, on Oct. 9.
