A small group of members from SSBC is planning to visit some of our mission partners in Egypt this fall. We want to encourage them and to see how we can partner with them in ministering to their community. You can learn more about the details and goals of the trip at church. We need the support of the church to travel and serve well.
Here are some ways you can contribute:
The small group from SSBC going to North Africa needs your help.
If you would like to partner with us financially, we would be grateful for your gift. South Shore Baptist believes in missions, and that includes those who go, those who pray, and those who give. If you would like to give, there are a few ways you can do that.
- Donate toward the trip: DONATION FORM
- Mail or deposit a check to South Shore Baptist Church.
Be sure to designate the funds for the Egypt Trip.
We need people to pray for our team. Someone once said,
“The mission of advancing the gospel is the great work of the church, and prayer is the engine that moves it.”
Help us as we go to advance the gospel—to proclaim the kingdom of God with our friends in North Africa. Our goal is to have 50 prayer partners for the trip in November. Would you be willing to pray? We have a prayer guide you can pick up in the lobby at church or you can contact the office for a copy. (We hesitate to share too much online due to the nature of the work.)
Fundraising events will be announced.
Medical Mission Trip to Kenya
Trip was postponed. We plan to go again in the future.
Bringing help and hope to the people of Embulbul, Kenya
In 2009, a small group of people visited SSBC mission partners, Mark and Lois Shaw, in Nairobi, Kenya. Our small team went on a fact-finding mission with Karen Community Church (KCC), in the poverty-stricken Embulbul slum area nearby. That survey resulted in a free medical clinic in Embulbul, which led to other outreach efforts for both physical care and spiritual impact. Praise God for the gospel partnership between several churches and mission partners in the US and Kenya!
Since then SSBC has sent a team almost every year to work with KCC to help provide medical care, orphan care, run sports camps, and provide needed food and supplies. Because of these clinics, thousands of people in Embulbul have been cared for and given access to simple medicines that we in the US take for granted. Many have seen the love of Jesus and heard the gospel because of our church teams collaborating in this work.
These trips have an impact on the community long after our team heads home. Ongoing gospel ministries are happening in Embulbul, a primarily Muslim community, because of the medical clinic. KCC now has a small church plant in Embulbul, where about 25 people meet for church outside until they can purchase a building.
What does it take to run the medical clinic?
KCC provides meals and housing for volunteers, hires Kenyan doctors, and gets local sponsors. SSBC provides funds for medical supplies and helping hands to organize the clinic and care for hurting people. Lots of prayer is needed as they care for this community of people and share the love and words of Jesus.
