This is an opportunity to do hands-on support work for global missionaries. These teams "adopt a missionary" by committing to pray for their missionary regularly, communicating to them via Skype or letters, sending care packages, and helping support them when they return home for visits. If you are interested in more information about joining a PAC team, please contact Steve and Paula Starnes.
