The Bible speaks about the importance of educating boys about God’s Word and modeling how to serve. “Train a child in the way he should go. When he is old, he will not turn away from it” (Proverbs 22:6 NIrV). Missions-minded Christian men serve as a living library of knowledge and as role models for boys to see what it means to grow in a relationship with Christ. RAs offer men the opportunity to spend time with their chapter members sharing God’s Word and modeling how to serve Christ. A wise leader will take time to learn how to work with boys and plan activities that will challenge them mentally, physically, and spiritually. Many RA leaders have had the opportunity to witness their members develop into mature young men who are serving Christ in a variety of ways. (from WMU.com)

RACER DAY 2013

What a wonderful day we had at Oakland Baptist Church in Disputana for RA Racer day. About 27 boys (Lads, Crusaders, and Challengers) raced their cars today representing about 5 churches. It was great to see the good sportsmanship and fellowship among all the children. What an amazing track they had that was connected to a computer and timer… It was fun to hear stories about how it was done in years past… cameras, digital cameras, … It was amazing! Lads had 24 heats, Crusaders 20 heats, Challengers and Counselors 8 heats.

A special “thank you” to Donald White for organizing this year’s event!!
