Local Missions (Jerusalem)

Our Mission Luke 3:11: And he would answer and say to them, "The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and he who has food is to do likewise."

Several years ago God led Petal First Baptist to adopt Petal Primary School. This has meant different things over those years. It all started when Brad noticed a little boy whose shoes needed to be tied. As he bent down to tie the shoes he realized that the shoes were barely shoes. He told the boy he would be right back and then went to the store and bought a brand new pair of shoes for this little boy. Through many generous donations from our community and our church family, we have been able to provide so much more since that first pair of shoes. Such as, more Shoes, Uniforms, Backpacks, School Supplies and food for children on the weekends (Backpacks of Hope).

Your support will bring hope to a child that will last a lifetime. With your help, we want to meet a child’s spiritual, physical, educational and relational needs. Poverty can do more than rob a child of physical life, the child loses their God-given sense of dignity and self-worth.
