LOCAL MISSIONS – OUTREACH
DESPERATE NEEDED WORK DAYS : Since the beginning of the pandemic Brunswick County Streetreach have continued to assist others – with NO break. It has been very challenging & exhausting. Many changes have been made for safety reasons. Many things at ministry have been put on back burner. We have so many projects that need done to continue this outreach during the busy hurricane season & year ahead. Lots of repairs. We are seeking these items / donations below:
1.) Several loads of gravel for driveway & loading area (approx. $2000)- has been very heavy traffic due to increase in pickups
2) 25 bales of pine straw for property & prayer areas & volunteers to spread
3.) Load of playground mulch for Angel Tree Kids playground- used daily
4.)Seeking 20-24 ft. Of white vinyl fence to block off & allow privacy for worship services at picnic & stage area
5. )Seeking someone to build a flat platform approximately 10Ã—12 for cook area
6.) Seeking someone to donate & build a covered shelter roof carport over parking area–approximately wide enough for at least 4 cars to pull under. Many pull on property & have to load & unload in the rain.
7.) Need 3-30gal trash cans, 1-5000btu a/c window unit, 2-outdoor benches
We know this sounds like a lot…and it is…but all is needed for us to minister to families in crisis daily. We have been so busy in past few years that we have let everything fall behind. The homeless & us have been trying to trim trees, clean natural areas & paint many areas before storm season. There is still so much to be done.
If you have a service group, church group, youth group or whoever would like to adopt one of these projects, please contact:
Donna & Garry Phelps @910-269-3057 (Brunswick County Streetreach), Howard Varnam @910-619-2962 or Barbara Varnam @910-619-5504 (Camp UMC) to help!!
If you can contribute anything for a meal, if you want to help deliver meals or if you love to wash dishes, please contact Debbie Donoghue at 910-540-3595.

AFRICAN INLAND MISSION – Adam and Cori (Troutman) Willard
Did you know that we have the opportunity to support missionaries with whom Camp has a congregational connection? You may have met them last Sunday as they worshiped with us. Reverend Ted and Lynda Troutman’s daughter, Cori, and her husband, Adam, and family have been serving in the Africa Inland Mission since 2013. Here is their story!
Cori and Adam Willard and their 4 children, Cruz (10), Javan (9), Zemi (3) and Shiloh (18 months) are here for the month of July to raise support for their mission, and of course to visit their parents!
Adam is native of New Bern and a graduate of UNCC where he attended on a baseball scholarship. Cori grew up in Mint Hill and is a graduate of UNCW. They both furthered their education by graduating from the New Orleans Baptist Seminary before they joined the Africa Inland Mission (AIM) in 2013. AIM is a Christian mission sending agency focused on Africa, but is now branching out to other parts of the world, including the US.
The Willards have served missions in the Congo, Central African Republic, and Uganda. Their current assignment is Uganda where they head up all the missions for that country. Before their current assignment in Kampala, they served in the very rural northern part of the country, Kaabong.
AIM’s stated mission is to see “Christ centered Churches established among all African peoples.” Their goal is to introduce Jesus Christ to those who have never heard of him. AIM seeks to help new believers grow strong and healthy in their faith and to see new believers enfolded into a maturing church. The organization strives to invest in the lives of current and future church leaders so they can effectively affect the lives of others who can in turn reach out to the vast population of Africa and beyond. The Mission Handbook gives AIM’s goal “to plant maturing churches…through the evangelization of unreached people groups and the effective preparation of church leaders.”
As with almost all missionaries today, Cori and Adam must raise their own funds to serve. It costs about $100,000 annually to carry out their mission. This is where you can help! You can make a one time donation, or decide to send monthly support. Donations are tax deductible and Cori and Adam can provide an accountability financial breakdown for you. Either one will be greatly appreciated by this young family who are spending their lives serving the Lord in a capacity few of us would be willing to do. If you would like to be added to their email list, let Ted or Lynda know.
There are two funds to choose from:
Africa Inland Mission
PO Box 3611
Peachtree City, GA 30269-7611
Put the Missionary ID in the memo line 160840, with names Adam/Cori Willard
The second fund is for the children’s education (public schools in Africa are not what they are in our country)
First Baptist Church
PO Box 1463
New Bern, NC 28563
Please make sure to put the Willard Education Fund in the memo line.
Let’s all do our part to further the Great Commission “to go forth and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ”. May God bless Cori, Adam, Cruz, Javan, Zemi and Shiloh as they do God’s work!
