On July 7th through 12th, the missions team from Lawson Baptist Church (Missouri) came and teamed up with folks from Set Free to bring a new level of missions to Beresford. Nursing home ministry, oil changes and auto maintenance, hair cuts and hair cutting tips, tips and training for sharpening chain saws and lawn mowers, medical screenings, foot and body massages, lots of building construction, lawn maintenance and web development, culminating in an awesome block party at the park on Friday. In everything, people encountered tangible evidence of God's love packaged with the message of the Gospel.
