Serving in Salyersville
July 11, 2018
Today we want to update you with some photos from Iris Yeager and her team while they are serving in Salyersville, KY. She is pictured below with her teammates some of whom she met for the first time this week. They spent this time sitting with one another talking and learning about one another.
In the post from just a few days ago we made mention of the First Fruits Thrift Store in Magoffin County. We have a couple of photos provided by Iris of the store. In them you can see the various items people in the area are able to purchase.
The purpose of this thrift store is two-fold: to provide a place where people in the area might purchase items they need as well as a means to meet the people in the area and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them and to use the profits made from the store to help fund missions teams to come serve in Salyerville with Licking River Baptist Church. The team down there for the next few days will be helping stock the store. The local newspaper, Salyersville Independent, reported on the opening of the store and shared more information on how the store came to fruition.
While in Salyersville, the team spent time ministering to those in a nursing home. The last photo shows the team as they were having intentional conversations with the people in the home and participating the other activities.
Iris finished of her message to us with how the week has only begun for them, but they’ve thoroughly enjoyed their time serving the people of Salyersville, KY. Please continue to pray for the team and that they would seek to find Jesus in all of their tasks throughout the rest of the week. Pray that they would experience the love of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ while they are serving.
