Coffee Helping Missions

Do you like Coffee? Does your church serve coffee? We have a way you can buy your coffee and support missions at the same time. Through a joint venture with BMW Coffee for Missions project, you can buy coffee and support two missionary projects, one with WOL and one with BMW. First click on this link, and follow the prompts. When you buy the coffee, ½ of the profit goes to a BMW missionary of your choice, we suggest the Janse van Rensburg family. They are missionaries in South Africa, and Brad discipled Deon. Or, if you know a BMW Missionary, pick them! And then ½ goes to our camp scholarship fund for Word of Life South Africa camps. Our summer camp is in December. The web site gives you a total for the donation from the purchase at checkout. In order for Word of Life donation to kick in, as you check out and after you select a BMW missionary, you have to put in our fund raiser code in the space provided- WordofLife_158 -for the camp scholarship. This fundraiser code is unique to the Hawkins' Team! Then check out and pay…it’s as simple as that. If you do not choose a missionary ½ of the profit will go to Biblical Ministries Worldwide's Indonesia project.

Prayer Update

Thank you for praying for our SMASH trip! We were able to take 9 youth from Durban, representing 4 local churches, and meet up with 6 other youth in Joburg from 3 more churches. This was our first SMASH missions trip from Durban. We were thrilled with the teens and their willingness to learn and to serve in any way asked! We had a very busy week and saw over 40 people choose to have faith in Christ! This couldn't happen without your support and prayers.
We arrived home on Saturday evening, and on Sunday morning Brad had the opportunity to preach at Reservoir Hills Bible Baptist Church. Two of the youth that went on SMASH with us, Mckaylin & Zain, are from this church, and it was exciting to be a part of the congregation and hear them report back on the trip.
Coming up next Saturday we will be having a leaders' fun day. We are excited to have the leaders from the different local churches using Word of Life materials here at our house for a time of fun, food and fellowship.
