New houseparent-Darbie Smith

We are pleased to welcome Darbie Smith to The Baptist Children’s Village ministry team. She started with us in June and serves as a houseparent on the Fikes-Gatewood Campus in Louisville, MS. Darbie is from Franklinton, LA where her home church is Grace Missionary Baptist Church. Darbie enjoys watching Louisiana State University and Dallas Cowboys football games with family, camping, shopping, reading, playing co-ed Softball, DIY projects, baking, and likes watching all Marvel movies. When asked about her calling to The BCV ministry she said, “Children have always had a place in my heart, from babysitting to daycare work to church youth groups. When I discovered The Baptist Children’s Village, I knew immediately that God’s hand was in it, and I was being called to work with children who deserve better than what they were initially given.” Please be in prayer for Darbie Smith and the many other houseparents who serve as front-line missionaries to the children and families served through The BCV ministry.
