Twelve years ago in 2006, Traci Shiner Gibson lost her young life to
breast cancer. Before she died she began Traci’s Hope to help others.
Now her parents, Gordie and Mary Shiner, her husband and sons along
with many friends continue her dream of helping others. 100% of the
money raised goes to help local breast cancer patients and their families. It
is Traci’s Hope’s goal to offer a way to relieve some of the stresses and
demands of everyday life. Some of the help can be funding towards things
like: medical costs and supplies related to a breast cancer diagnosis, utilities,
housecleaning, rent/mortgage, transportation, childcare, and more.
Hundreds of people have been helped. Requests for help come in weekly.
September’s Noisy Offering will be collected September 30. Don’t forget
the yearly Traci’s Hope annual Barbecue and event is Saturday October 6.
World Mission Offering
Just a review! Our WMO helps International Ministries (IM) recruit, train, and send new global workers. There are more than 100 new global workers who are in vocational training getting ready to go into the mission field. Our WMO helps vital ministries already established to continue. Our WMO helps IM facilitate long-term partnering networks between churches in the US, IM global workers, and overseas ministries. Our WMO gives IM the capacity to maintain over 240 global Christian partnerships worldwide which are actively sharing God’s message of hope, love, and healing to the lost and hurting world. IM is involved in more than 70 countries around the globe. The WMO allows IM area directors to provide pastoral, prayer and planning support as requested to our international Christian partners. Some of the missionaries who we have heard about are: Dan and Sarah Chetti in Lebanon; Ann and Bill Clemmer in South Sudan; Tim and Patti Long in Mexico; Matt and Lori Mann in Laos; and Katherine and Wayne Niles in the Congo.

10 REASONS OUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS VITAL!
American Baptist Women
There are several opportunities for ladies to come together and fun, laughter and fellowship. Each month, the Ladies Circle meets for a time of devotion while developing deeper relationships. There are many other opportunities with our mission work, and Broome-Tioga American Baptist Association events for ladies.
Traci's Hope is a not-for-profit fund to help men and women who are going through breast cancer. The organization will help pay for many different services that insurance companies don't pay for. Sometimes it is gas cards, or day care. Sometimes it is house cleaning, or mortgage payments. While fighting this disease, the needs could be endless, and nobody should have to do it alone. Traci's Hope is here to make sure everyone gets support.
