We believe with your help and by God's grace we can achieve big things this Giving Tuesday.

The Mississippi Baptist Convention emphasis for The Baptist Children's Village Annual Offering is scheduled around Mother's Day each year.

We also appreciate their continued support and generous gifts to the ministry.

March 25, 2019 - Sierra & Austin's Story

Sierra remembers how scared she was of the dogs at night. She learned over time to lay very still, hoping maybe the dogs would go away. It was a miserable life - homeless, hungry, and sleeping on a park bench with her mother and her brother, Austin. They never knew when their next meal would come, so Sierra was always hungry. When it wasn’t too cold, she was able to wash her hair in a city water fountain.This was Sierra’s and Austin’s life.
