GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.(Mission Network News)— For the last 20 years, World Mission has used thrift stores as part of its ministry in the U.S. But only recently has the mission organization begun expanding its thrift store ministry to serve globally, creating an international impact.
Greg Kelley with World Mission explains, “We have found so many people who have a passion for missions–especially unreached people groups. But they don’t have the opportunity necessarily to travel to North Africa or India and Thailand or other countries where these unreached people live.”
“So we’ve come up with a model, locally here in our community in Grand Rapids, and actually in other parts of the country, where we have volunteer thrift stores so people can serve. The net effect of them, outside of blessing their own community, is helping us send Treasures, which are solar-powered audio Bibles, into these nations of the world where people have never heard of Christ.”
