‘Dub’ Jackson recruits volunteers for what may be his last campaign

RICHMOND, Va. (BP)–Volunteers are needed to work in Hong Kong churches during a summertime campaign in that country.

The request comes from Chu Wood Ping, general secretary of the Hong Kong Baptist Convention, said W.H. “Dub” Jackson.

Jackson, who helps organize partnership evangelism projects for the International Mission Board, will lead 15 to 25 teams of at least five people each to Hong Kong July 18-31. The trip will cost no more than $2,795.

Jackson and his wife, Doris, have been leading volunteer teams overseas since 1963. But they indicate this trip to Hong Kong may be their last nationwide partnership campaign.

In 1963, the Jacksons took more than 500 volunteers to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore, the first such volunteer partnership for Southern Baptists, he said. At least 45,000 decisions for Christ were made throughout Asia during those six weeks of evangelistic meetings.

“We have coordinated more than 100 nationwide partnerships in more than 50 countries around the world,” Jackson said. “We would like to keep on indefinitely but we may be running out of time. We will serve on a reduced schedule as long as health and opportunities permit.”

For more information or to sign up for the project, contact the Jacksons by phone at (915) 698-8480; fax, (915) 698-4000 or e-mail [email protected]. Their mailing address is 2426 Spyglass Hill Court, Abilene, TX 79606.
