Review for Baptist World Alliance, Falls Church, VA, USA
Our family has had contact with the Baptist Word Alliance since the late 1930s when my mother and family members attended the BWA Congress in Atlanta, Georgia. Through the years the family has tried to keep abreast of the work the BWA has done and how it has helped bind like-thinking groups together to promote the Lord's work throughout the world.
In 1943, I heard Dr. Rushbrooke, president of the BWA, who was at a Southern Baptist Student retreat at Ridgecrest, NC. Since then I have cherished the page from my Bible where he gave me his signature.
My husband's parents attended the Congress in Rio in the 1950s, and my husband and I have attended the Congresses in Toronto, Hawaii, and in England, enjoying the fellowship of Baptists from around the world.
It was especially great to be able to speak personally with Dr. Callam and his wife as they attended a Texas Baptist meeting two or three years ago in Waco, and to feel their genuine interest in and concern about people all around the world.
We are grateful for the leadership the BWA has exercised through the years, and pray that it may continue helping Christians share the Gospel with people everywhere who need the Lord so badly.
This is so uplifting! Thank you for sharing your family's decades-long association with the Baptist World Alliance. We are grateful you are part of this dynamic movement of Baptists!
