ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP) -- Once during a college mission trip they were co-leading, brothers Greg and Rob Wilton got so worked up after playing on opposing basketball teams, someone had to break up the tussle. Moments after that fight, the Wilton brothers, both currently serving as missionaries through the North American Mission Board (NAMB), were back to being friends and planning their next ministry moves together. That's what happens when a sibling rivalry is bathed in a passion for sharing the Gospel.

Some had been there since 1 a.m., armed with ponchos and umbrellas to battle a steady rain that fell on the city most of the night. They were waiting for the doors of Graffiti Church to open for its annual toy sale outreach event. Inside, Graffiti's pastor and New York City Send Relief missionary Taylor Field, along with about 20 volunteers, also were waiting, anxious to spread a little Christmas cheer.
PITTSBURGH (BP) -- While more than 100 volunteers and well-wishers filled Vintage Church's freshly renovated basement during the grand opening of Pittsburgh's Send Relief Ministry Center, Adam Sewell heard one word repeat in his mind. Faithful. That's how Sewell, a Send Relief Missionary in Pittsburgh, described the Oct. 19 grand opening ceremony, which included a homeless care package assembling event, a Chick-fil-A lunch for volunteers and a time of worship and sharing the Gospel. Volunteers filled 250 backpacks with food and daily living supplies.
