“Since 2010 Arkansas Baptists across the state have partnered with local associations each year to impact lostness across the state. As missionaries gather for this One Day event, several ministries are done to accomplish this goal. These include: prayer walking, evangelism, children’s activities, block parties, home repairs, health/dental clinics, sports camps, yard work, cowboy ministries, children’s fishing derbies, and multi-housing ministries. Over these past few years, many people have invited Christ to be their savior, people have acknowledged the call to missions, and churches have grown spiritually and numerically. This event has become the highlight of the year for many people across our state. It has also made the local associations aware that this One Day event is only a beginning to something that can be an ongoing mission project at a local level. This event has spawned local “Jerusalem” mission days across the state. In times past we have had other surrounding states and BCM groups involved in this event.” (excerpt from https://www.absc.org/ministries/acts-18-one-day-mission-trip)OnOctober2ndof2021,morethan2500missionariesfromalloverthestatewill‘launch’fromCycloneStadiumin RussellvilletoparticipateinthebiggestOne-Dayevangelismeventoftheyear.2500plusmissionaries!Canyou imagine the impact that will have on the communities in our Association?WhiletheCovid-19shutdownsresultedinthecancelationof‘OneDay’2020,thedreamsandpassionofthe ARVBA Churchcommunityneverwavered.‘OneDay’ServeLocalfilledthemissionsgapinarealandmeaningfulway.Liveswerechangedandchurcheswereremindedoftheeasewithwhichlocalmissionprojectscouldbeplannedand executed.OneDay:ServeLocalissuretocontinueacrosstheStatebutitcannottaketheplaceoftheannualmissons adventure that is ‘One Day’.
