RICHMOND — Twenty-nine Southern Baptists were appointed as missionaries to the nations during the International Mission Board’s trustee meeting Feb. 28-March 1 near Richmond.
Trustees also heard numerous reports and recognized 63 missionaries who retired or died within the past year.
Among those appointed were Aaron and Melissa Stormer of Hilldale Baptist Church in Clarksville, who are being sent to the American peoples. Aaron said they are going “because we know that God’s heart is for all people to know His name.”
Melissa noted she realized God’s heart for the nations while sharing the gospel in a small mountain village in Haiti. … God has called us to go and carry out His mission in order that the lost may be found and His truth proclaimed,” she said.
