Starting in the fall of 2015, through the support of Arkansas Baptists, the Church Planting Team received a block party trailer to aid new works in their evangelistic efforts. Since then, 266 people have come to know Jesus through over 50 events. Because of the Lord's blessing in these efforts, there is now a church planting trailer in every region of Arkansas. The trailer was used so extensively in the Delta, and the need has become so great that there are now 4 trailers in the Delta alone. Thousands have been exposed to the gospel and served in tangible ways through this ministry.
This coming spring and summer, church plants across the Delta will be partnering with their sponsor churches to reach the lost in their communities. Nine block parties are scheduled in the next 5 months. Please pray for the following block parties in the Delta: Marvell (April 7), West Helena (April 28), Fordyce (May 5th & June 2), Forrest City (May 19), Pine Bluff (June 30), Dermott (July 14 & 22), and West Memphis (July 28).
