Girls learn about missions
The Girls in Action missions organization (G.A.'s) of Nueva
Vida Baptist Church met on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the church,
301 W. Third Street, to hear a program about mission work in
other parts of the world.
The G.A.'s, first through seventh graders, learned about a
woman from Guatemala "being led to the Lord." Special guest,
Joyce Morton, showed slides about Belize and Mexico, and
spoke about mission work a little closer to home...at Big
Bend Baptist Church of Terlingua.
She explained how missions in Mexico included distributing
food, holding Vacation Bible Schools and revivals.
Morton also showed the G.A.'s pictures of West Texas, and
told them about how "mission work can be accomplished right
here at home!" She also taught and led the girls in some
A retired public school teacher, Morton had thought about
being a missionary all her life. However, it wasn't until
she was 59 years of age that she was able to go to Central
America for the first time. Morton teaches Sunday School at
West Park Baptist Church and leads the singing at First
Baptist Church in Barstow every Sunday. She has also
performed in different events as the popular "Rainbow the
Clown," for about 15 years. As "Rainbow," she shares the
Lord Jesus Christ with "all the little children."
Members of the Girls in Action include: Deannady Herrera,
Kayla Herrera, Kiara Rae Gutierrez, Nikki Gutierrez, Katrina
Machuca, Tiffany Machuca, Roxanne Tarango, Alexis Tarango,
