Missionary Spotlight

During the week of prayer for Home Missions, Ms. Lorna Bius and her ministry were highlighted in our prayer brochure.  The youth of Antioch wrote her a card of appreciation.  She responded to the card and came for a Sunday night service to share what God is doing through her missions work.
A recent article was found in a publication of the Florida Baptist Convention.  Here is a highlight of Mr. Bius.
At only 10 years old, Lorna Bius experienced what she now describes, some 30 years later, as the “most transforming and foundational experience of my life with Christ.”

The young Bius had spent a week at Camp WorldLight, a mission camp made possible by Florida Baptists’ heart of generosity.

That week Bius sensed that God orchestrated circumstances to help her understand she could trust Him no matter what happens in life.

Answering the call to full-time ministry 20 years ago, Bius now serves in the western United States as a LoveLoud missionary for the North American Mission Board, working alongside churches and other SBC partners, helping them to “demonstrate God’s love by meeting significant human need while sharing Christ.”

Five Florida Baptist mission camps are supported by the state offering, preparing the next generation to answer God’s call.


Pray for Bius as she leads churches 
across the west to meet needs 
and share Christ 
in their communities.
