A total of $7,352.49 was received in 2018 for duffel bags and Bibles. These funds have helped to purchase 735 duffel bags. Each year, South Carolina WMU provides funds that make it possible to provide duffel bags and Bibles are given to all children who are registered in the foster system in South Carolina. We are thankful for your continued support of this ministry and the lives which are impacted for the Kingdom.

TESTIMONIAL: Alex Whitlock, Acteens leader, Pelham First Baptist Church contacted South Carolina WMU to share this: "I heard about the Duffel Bags and Bibles for Foster Children missions opportunity at a recent WMU conference I attended. I brought several missions opportunities to our Acteens meeting and our girls chose this project. We are excited to partner with you in providing duffel bags and Bibles to foster kids."

GRATITUDE EXPRESSED: Karl Brown, president, South Carolina Foster Parents Association, frequently calls South Carolina WMU to express his gratitude for our involvement in this project.
