ABOUT THE INITIATIVE:
A hallmark of Southern Baptist life is our commitment to international missions. The holidays provide a unique opportunity to minister to missionaries as they are often separated from loved ones.
Remember missionaries sent out from your church.
This Christmas season work with your Sunday School class, small group, or church to send a blessing. Ask your missionaries what they need. Learn how to best serve missionaries through a breakout session during the SBCV Annual Homecoming in November.
Send a Christmas or thank you card to a retired missionary.
A great way to involve younger generations is to teach and remind them of the legacy of Southern Baptist missions. One way to do that is to send a note of thanks to a retired missionary. Retired missionaries often feel forgotten. The simplest card from children and youth can bless a retired missionary this season.

Encourage Missionary Families
If you’re near a college, reach out to campus ministries and see if there are any missionary kids. Make these MKs a care package for finals week. Reach out to the families of the missionaries your church has sent out. Invite them to a meal and thank them for their sacrifice.
Please report your church’s participation in this project below.
If you have additional questions, please call the SBC of Virginia office at (804) 270-1848.
