Sara Wetzig Enjoys Summer as Concord Baptist Association Missionary
Tuesday, August 23, 2011
Sara Wetzig, a senior at Missouri Valley College, Marshall, majoring in Criminal Justice with a minor in Human Services, spent this summer working as the summer missionary for Concord Baptist Association working with Southern Baptist churches in Cole and Moniteau counties.
Previously Wetzig had spent summers as a Sports Crusader summer missionary doing evangelistic sports camps around the state.
After not being able to continue doing Sports Crusaders, Wetzig talked to her pastor at Clarksburg Baptist Church, Dave Percival, who suggested working as a summer missionary for the association. After filling out the application and having an interview, Wetzig was accepted and worked doing vacation Bible schools, children's camps, a drama camp and the Mid-Missouri Missions Team camp held throughout the area.
"I was born and raised in a Christian home," Wetzig said. "My mother, Barbara Wetzig, was and still is the piano player for Clarksburg Baptist Church. So every time the church doors were open we were there. When my parents were going through a divorce I felt like no one was with me. When I talked to my mom she told me to always lean on God and He will always be there to lean on. So that night I decided to trust her and rely on God. Since then my walk has only gotten stronger, because without God nothing in my life would work out. I got into missions because of my mother. She has always been involved in missions and so in return the love transferred to me. I love being a missionary everyday it brings me joy."
