October 5: Rosalind Campbell
Wednesday in Tangier. Sightseeing in the morning. Met with migrants in the afternoon. Heard a particularly heart-wrenching story from one young man. Joyous worship and celebration of 10 years of partnership this evening. So much love and hope.

October 3: Rosalind Campbell
Incredible sights on the drive to Volubilis and then tour of ancient Roman ruins at Volubilis. I discovered that my traveling companions are very competitive when it comes to playing Count the Cows (and sheep) on the drive to Tangier. My team lost because we conceded defeat too soon. Who knew there would be flocks of sheep in the middle of a city and one more cemetery just around the corner?

This evening we enjoyed the hospitality of the church here in Tangier and met some fellow American travelers who arrived today from Cairo. This group also is focusing on refugee/migrant ministry. Looking forward to spending the day with them tomorrow.

Sept. 30: Rosalind Campbell
I just wanted to thank all who have offered prayers and well-wishes for our Morocco trip. We feel those prayers. After a safe and uneventful trip, we have enjoyed the sights and sounds of Rabat this afternoon, had a delicious dinner at the church, sat in on part of a lively praise and prayer gathering and been loved on by the most gracious, joyful people I have ever met. Our team is sandwiched between two wonderful congregations of people who extend God's love so freely and openly.

Sept. 29: Rosalind Campbell
Sitting on the plane in Atlanta waiting to depart for Paris!!! Then on to Morocco!!! Prayers appreciated for our team as we embark on this journey. Pray for safety, good health, energy, our loved ones who will keep the home fires burning and most of all, God's eyes, hands and heart for the people we will meet and love. God bless y'all!!

Report

"We had a meaningful trip to Morocco, but it's good to be back home and in the office. Callie Minks, Sharon Price, and Martha Robertson represented Lexington Avenue Baptist Church with compassion, diplomacy, and effectiveness. We greatly appreciate the financial assistance given by the church. Even with that, each of them had to make a significant financial contribution for this trip, in addition to giving up vacation days and income from work. They now have to return to their normal schedule after arriving home a couple hours after midnight on jet lag. The trip was rewarding and enjoyable, but no vacation, with little rest and hearing the heart wrenching stories of refugees and migrants. I hope you will take the time to thank Callie, Sharon, and Martha for representing our church in Morocco.
     Morocco Recap: I spent my week in Rabat, in worship, leading some sessions on adult Bible study, children Sunday School, praying for conflict nations, visiting friends in the church, hanging out with the pastors, and observing the work of CEI (International Aid Committee).

Morocco Partnership Trip - October 3-14, 2013

“Fellowship Without Borders--Caravan for Women”

Kentucky Baptist Fellowship, Kentucky Baptist Women In Ministry, and The Eglise Evangelique au Maroc will partner together in October to lead the first multicultural women’s experience for Kentuckians and Africans in Morocco. Lead by Karen Thomas Smith and Becky Caswell-Speight, this trip seeks to build relationships between women of the EEAM and women of the KYBWIM.  The group from Kentucky will travel (caravan) across the country of Morocco with women of the EEAM developing partnership, discovering ways to work together, and encouraging each other in their own cultures and contexts. Highlights for the trip include worship in Casablanca, Bible study in Fez, dialogue with Moroccan Muslims in Ifrane, and worship with migrants/refugees in Rabat. Contact Josh Speight or Becky Caswell-Speight for more info. Tentative Travel Dates: October 3-14, 2013. Estimated Cost: $2100

LABC/Rabat Partnership Trip

Keith Stillwell will be going to Morocco at the same time as the KBF Women in Ministry trip,  primarily to help the Rabat church with children’s education.  We are looking for a woman to go and represent LABC and someone (perhaps the same person) with a background in childhood education. See Keith if you are interested.

Who is My Neighbor? - Brenda Farmer

Thoughts of Morocco: Wrapping the question around my mind, “Who is my neighbor?”

My thoughts of “Healing Hands” kept running through my mind for weeks before leaving for Morocco.
Carolyn and I were to do manicures and pedicures and chair massages for the African refugee women.  Healing Hands….Jesus’s healing hands.  Jesus was not afraid to “touch” the hurt, afflicted, sick and oppressed.

His love was shown time and again through the laying of His hands on those who needed healing
