Brewton-Parker students to spend summer on missions

MOUNT VERNON -- For the third consecutive summer, Brewton-Parker College will have a student participating in a mission venture in one of the world's most impoverished countries.

Anna Fry will be ministering as a Georgia Baptist Student Union-sponsored summer missionary in the southern African nation of Mozambique.

Keith Wade, who was the college's delegate to Mozambique for six weeks in May and June of 2002, will be spending this summer in the Alaska capital of Juneau.

Fry will work to continue expansion of Wade's duties from last summer, which followed pioneer efforts established by recent Brewton-Parker graduate Mark Stokes in the summer of 2001.

Fry, Wade and at least 15 other Brewton-Parker students or recent graduates will be performing summer missions in multiple locations, announced by Glenn Wallace, Brewton-Parker's new campus minister and Baptist Student Union advisor.

Four students - Michael Brown, Joel Kramer, Molly Phillips and Kristen Tillman - will be participating in a missions opportunity in Jacksonville, Fla.

Three students - Jeff Conkin, Neal Hartley and Danny Steis - will be working in several areas through the M-fuge program sponsored by the Southern Baptist Convention.

New Bethel Baptist Church in Metter will have three students as summer missionaries: Ross Lewis, Kristi Morris and Michael Spivey.

Two students, Ashley Sheppard and Jessica Ulin, will be serving in Montgomery, Ala.

Two May graduates will be completing their duties as youth ministers this summer. Angela Yarber is at The Oaks, a Traditional Baptist Church, in Lyons, and Jason Teal is at Pineview Baptist Church in Reidsville.

Jonathan Howard also will be serving as a youth intern at a site not known by Wallace.
