JACKSONVILLE (FBC)—The 2007 Maguire State Misson Offering promotion will focus on seven specific ministries, including the new church site interest-free loan program which benefited Iglesia Bautista Deermeadows in Jacksonville.

Other segments highlight ministries in Florida Baptists’ partnership states and countries—West Virginia, Haiti and Cuba.

The ministries of two young women are also examined. Mission camps for Haitian youth inspired Brenda Delphin of Avon Park, and summer mission experiences gave purpose to Florida State University graduate Cortney Stewart.

Also included in the materials is a look at ministry in the Marion County jail that illuminates God’s redemptive nature.
