Missions Area: Salisbury, Maryland
Mr. Weaver serves in a large city. The people have many needs that his church helps to meet. They help their neighbors do their laundry at a local self-service laundry. At Thanksgiving they give out boxes of Thanksgiving food for families in their neighborhood.
Some of the Weavers’ neighbors have stores, so they help them by buying items from them instead of a big chain store. Each week, they ask their neighbors how they can pray for them. They are also helping their neighbors learn how to grow gardens and cook healthy meals for their families. In all these ways relationships are built, and they are able to share about Jesus.
From his city Mr. Weaver can go to Baltimore where Annie Armstrong lived, and where national WMU® offices were first located. On one visit, he saw Annie’s Bible that had been found in a hidden drawer in a desk!
A church in Baltimore helps Remedy Church, and Remedy Church sent a sound board to another church to help a church planter there.
