2020-2021 THEME

WOMEN’S MISSIONARY AUXILIARY

BAPTIST MISSIONARY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA

SHARE THE VISION

      As our National WMA President, Jodi Rhea, announced in her April, 2020, letter, we have chosen to keep the same theme for the coming year. SHARE THE VISIONis so relevant with the world’s current situation. Throughout the years, the women of the BMA have kept the vision of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to all people and nations before them in their various programs and projects. We want to keep that vision front and center during this most unusual year.
 
      My friend, Paul Gauntt, recently posted the following on Facebook, and gave me permission to share it with you. “PANDEMIC, RIOTING IN THE STREETS, CHURCHES CLOSED, SCHOOLS CLOSED, MURDER HORNETS, EFFORT TO DISMANTLE POLICE, … AND NOW SAHARAN DUST. USUALLY WHEN A HALF-DOZEN ISSUES ARISE LIKE THIS – ALL AT THE SAME TIME -, IT LEADS ME TO BELIEVE SOMEBODY’S TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING. MAYBE GOD HAS CHOSEN THE YEAR 2020 TO CLEAR OUR VISION. JUST A THOUGHT.”
 
      As we navigate the next few months of uncertainty in our nation, let us continue to put our trust in Jesus Christ and rely on Him for all of our needs. He knows the future and He will supply what we need. With all of the chaos around us, let us realize even more the importance of our need to “SHARE THE VISION”. At our Women’s Ministry Conference at the National BMA meeting in April of 2021, our breakout sessions will be looking at “SHARE THE VISION” in several different ways.
 
  • Share the Vision through Women’s Ministries
  • Share the Vision through Gospel Music
  • Share the Vision through the Written Word
  • Share the Vision through Community Outreach

                  

       I challenge each of you to SHARE THE VISION where ever God leads you.  Let’s all try to be obedient to the vision God has given us of sharing what Christ has done for us.  Sabrina Clayton will be our keynote speaker for the 2021 Women’s Ministry Conference and I look forward to seeing many of you in Waxahachie, Texas, on April 19th and 20th of 2021.  If you have never been to one of our conferences, I urge you to attend this one.  We have had approximately 200 women at each of the last two conferences and the blessings have been tremendous.
