"For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home." ~Matthew 25:35
WHITE BLUFF UMC'S MISSIONS INVOLVEMENT
Husband and Wife Mission Team Members of
White Bluff United Methodist Church Savannah, Georgia
Ever since they have been together, Bill and Maggie Briggs have dedicated their lives to missions. They continually use the gifts and the talents that the Lord has given them to the glory of God. They both exclaim, “It has been a great joy and privilege to follow Him, here in Savannah, for three trips to the Philippines and in Honduras for the last eighteen years.” Maggie's parents were saved through the work of American Baptist Missionaries after WWII so Gospel Mission is very close to her heart. In the Philippines they visited a women’s prison, an orphanage, several young evangelical churches and two groups of indigenous people. The couple have been following in the footsteps of Maggie's Aunt, an evangelical church planter in the Philippines and have been able to visit some of the churches she had started there. Bill and Maggie are both happy to proclaim, “For as long as the Lord allows, we will continue to serve Him, until we see Him in Heaven!”
