North Fork Baptist Church
“Change a Home Mission Project”
"Change a Home" mission project is one initiated by North Fork VBS kids . The mission project was designed to meet a family need in the community of Virgilina where a father/ grandfather is living in a
mobile home in need of great repair or replacement . This father/ grandfather has been caring for his
children and grandchildren alone after his wife was tragically killed in an automobile accident. North
Fork church decided to help this father (one of their own community members) by initiating the journey
of "Change a Home missions project". Community partnerships are being formed now to bring a new
mobile home and complete setup for this family. You are invited to share in the community efforts to
help this dear family. South Boston Clayton Homes has agreed to provide the mobile home at a discounted price . We are hopeful that area churches will join with us . For more information, contact
North Fork Baptist Church at [email protected].

DRBA Sponsors Chile Mission Trip
Pray we will prepare the way for the Lord to enter the hearts of the lost of
Valparaiso, Chile
And child, you will be called a prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare His ways, to give His people knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their
sins. Because of our God’s merciful compassion, the Dawn from on high will visit us to shine
on those who live in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of
peace. Luke 1:76-79
