***Did you know that there is a provision on the Anson County ballot to expand the sales of alcohol in Anson County? Is more alcohol, drunkenness and broken homes really in the best interest of the people of Anson County or just a few who hope to make more money? It has not seemed to have brought any more hotels or restaurants to Wadesboro where it already legal. Is it really worth the moral cost?

A Message from David Ross, Associational Missions Strategist

I Am Thankful

I am thankful for many things including God's love, salvation, family, Anson Baptist Association and each pastor and member! We often take so much for granted! Thanks you, God, for Your many blessings!

With Thanksgiving on November 24th and the Week of Prayer for International Missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering beginning on November 27th, I could not help but connect Thanksgiving and missions.

I am also thankful for Southern Baptist Missions that since 1845 have shared the good news of Jesus Christ first with China, then with Africa and then to many different countries and people groups. I am thankful for the example and sacrifices of great missionaries like: William Carey (1761-1834), Adoniram Judson (1788-1850), Hudson Taylor (1832-1905), and Lottie Moon (1840-1912).

I am thankful for the 3,532 men and women who make up today's missionary force. I am thankful for their commitment, sacrifice and work. I consider them modern day heroes of the faith.

I am thankful that Southern Baptist and their partners have together reached 176,795 souls for Christ and started 22,744 new churches to disciple them in 2021.

I am thankful that 90% of our IMB Missionaries are actively engaging unreached people groups in many hard-to-reach places where safety and security are daily considerations.

I am thankful for the privilege and responsibility to pray and support them in their great work with my prayers and offerings. I hope you are thankful too for the work that we are all doing together through our faithful missionaries! To God Be The Glory! Let us be faithful to pray, give and if possible, to even go!

I love you all!

David
