From Barbara Paul –
Be a part of world missions! Host a meal for missionaries coming to CBC for the World Missions Conference!
People should contact me at 843-645-2353. Meal hosts need to invite some friends/ neighbors to their home to share a meal with a missionary and then hear about the missionary’s work and country. It can be geared for all ages. It is suggested that the meal be a potluck dinner.
Guidelines for Hosts
Meals with a Missionary
Purpose: Provide a meal and a time for missionaries to share his/her story in a small group setting, either at the table or after the meal
Date: Thursday, Oct 1, 2015
Time: 6 PM – 8:30 PM
Place: Homes of CBC members, hopefully at the same location where the missionary is staying
Who is invited? Missionary (and their translator), and friends and neighbors of host family, ABF groups, missionary’s host family.
Who does the inviting? The host/hostess
What kind of meal should be served? Potluck dinner is encouraged, thus sharing the work
What kind of food should be served? Chicken and rice seem to be a staple all over the world. The fellowship counts more than the food!
How many guests should you invite? Meal hosts may decide upon the exact number of guests, however, 10-12 guests is the desirable size; invite more guests than desired so that enough will actually be present for the meal; several families together may be host for the meal; or a supporting ABF may be a host for the meal
Who is responsible for transportation of the missionary? Meal hosts may be responsible for transporting missionaries/translators to and from their host homes, or for giving directions to their home
What is the evening program? After a short introduction of the missionary by the host, the missionary should speak about his work, his family, his country. The evening program should end about 8:30/9 PM, so that the missionary can get ready for the Friday events. The missionary should share about 30-45 minutes and allow some time for questions and answers.
