From Gloria’s Desk
The methods change, but the message never does. I am so blessed to be a part of a ministry spanning generations, sharing the simple gospel message of Jesus to children. If you have been a part of the ministry of Gloria Russell, please email Aunt Gloria and tell your story
We would love to hear from you!
Today, Victory Camp Colmesneil, located on 33 beautiful acres in East Texas, is home to our headquarters where Aunt Gloria is still busy seeking God for direction, writing and planning mission opportunities for over 80 volunteers.
The work today:
#1 Victory Camps are held on Saturdays in the Spring for elementary age children. Activities include fishing, swimming, horseback riding, pottery making, a nature train ride and of course, awesome chapel services with worship leader Ricky Davis, Homeland mission team dramas, and “Stories to Live By” from Aunt Gloria and Mrs. Kelli.
#2 Circle Clubs are after school Bible Clubs taught by trained volunteers and are held on elementary campuses in Angelina, Trinity, Nacogdoches and Tyler counties. Currently 17 Bible Clubs are ongoing each week during the school year, sponsored by GRCM.
#3 Homeland Teen Missions is a group of trained teenagers who have grown up in the ministry and are now spreading the Gospel message themselves through drama services and mission work. Locally, the group volunteers at Victory Camp, lead services in area churches and dedicate time each summer to a mission trip. Since 2005, Homeland has “invaded” the following areas with the Good News of Jesus during the summer months: San Antonio, Texas; Little Rock, Arkansas; Washington Heights, Florida; West Palm Beach, Florida; Nacogdoches, Angelina and Tyler counties; Huntsville, New Waverly and Bryan, Texas; and in 2012 they will be headed to Galveston, Texas and Zimbabwe, Africa. The Africa mission work is led by Ricky Davis Ministries and we are excited God has continued this partnership to the next generation!
Keep praying for GRCM as we keep doing what God has assigned us to do for him until He comes again. If God is leading you to become a financial partner with us, call (409) 837-9990 and speak with Aunt Gloria.
