FENTON Mich. – Twenty-two members of Union Valley Baptist Church (UVBC) from Beebe came through Michigan on their way to the Gathering Church in Windsor Canada. Pastor Tommy Miller of UVBC Arkansas and Pastor Garth Leno of The Gathering Windsor having arranged the July 2018 mission trip were glad to see their months of planning turn into reality.
UVBC Arkansas volunteers made the 13-hour one-way road-trip because they have a heart for missions that is larger than their own church and their own local community. The UVBC church brochure declares their mission is “to build strong Christian families through our love of the Lord Jesus Christ.” That mission was evident by their intergenerational mission team. Volunteers worked equally hard whether they were senior citizens or teenagers.
