2021 Summer Missionaries

Abby Gammon

Abby will be serving in North Africa with Go Now Missions and will be making relationships with the local people, specifically college students. She has the particular advantage of speaking Arabic has studied the culture for three years, which allows her to have opportunities to share the gospel in ways that others might not be able to. While she will be in a majority Muslim population, the people are open to learning about American culture from Americans, and her presence will aid the long-term missionaries to also maintain relationships and spread the good news about Jesus.

 

Trinity Long

Trinity will serve at the Hospitality House in Huntsville, TX through Go Now Missions and the Texas Baptist General Convention. The Hospitality House is the only standing overnight inmate family facility house that is open seven days a week.
