Join in giving a warm welcome this morning, February 8, 2015, to the Lee family.
David and Felicia Lee love the Lord and love children. Since 2009 they have served in Romania among abused and abandoned children. Felicia is Romanian, born and raised. David learned the language and culture to make Romania his home as well. Their ministry includes: "On Track," a Bible lesson and tutoring program, and helping Romanian Christians foster and adopt Romanian children.
The Lees are in the U.S. to gain additional support that they might expand their ministry. They are currently living in Wakeman and are attending the Camden Baptist Church in Wellington. Upon raising their needed support, they will return to Romania and continue their work among troubled youth.
Welcome, Lee family!
NOTE: If you would like to contribute to David’s ministry, please make your check payable to Camden Baptist Church, memo: Lee Ministry or place your cash donation in an offering envelope marked: Lee Ministry. http://leekids.org/

As we continue to consider the sanctity of human life the Mission Committee would like to recommend a movie to you – THE DROP BOX.
Description: The Drop Box tells the story of South Korean pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect the most vulnerable members of society. It is a heart-wrenching exploration of the physical, emotional, and financial toll associated with providing refuge to orphans that would otherwise be abandoned on the streets. But The Drop Box movie is also a story of hope—a reminder that every human life is sacred and worthy of love. (South Korea is not the only country grappling with the issue of orphan care. Around the world, there are more than 150 million orphans waiting for forever families to call their own.)
The movie is available through services like Netflix, Amazon, or Redbox, and there is a children’s version by the same name from Focus on the Family ‘Adventures in Odyssey.’ There is now a copy of the movie available at the church office.
