Missions after 50!

Posted by Leona Bergstrom

Here's another example of people over 50 giving back in the area of missions.

Amy Hanson, PhD, writes:
"Bobbie Baxter always wanted to go on a mission trip but did not have the opportunity until she was 80 years old. When other retired women might be baking cookies or watching television, Bobbie joined the Second Half Ministries team from Northshore Baptist Church on a short-term mission trip to Nicaragua. She is not the only older adult who has invested her time and energy in the lives of these poverty stricken people. In fact 45–50 percent of all the volunteers from Northshore that do short-term mission work in Nicaragua are 50 years of age or older."
