Baptist University of the Americas joined Literacy Connexus . . .

It could be called a "literacy worldview." Literally.


The Jimenez-De La Cruz Missions Society from Baptist University of the Americas spent part of its Spring Break mission trip learning about Literary Connexus and helping sort books for multiple distribution points.


The group included students from Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Haiti, Mexico, and Texas. In addition, society and trip sponsor Craig Bird was a longtime missionary in Africa.



"Our time with the Literacy Connexus staff was a fitting conclusion to our experience that included working and worshiping and eating with refugees from Iraq, Congo, and Myanmar, and doing intensive study on Buddhism," Bird said.


"Knowing they were helping people by touching books that would touch lives in homeless shelters and Rio Grande Valley barrios and of military veterans was special. The overview Lester and his staff provided of the Literacy Connexus vision planted seeds for future BUA students and the ministries they will lead around the world."


 BUA, in San Antonio, also hosts Literary Connexus trainings.
