Wilmore's Jennifer Riggs has many passions. First and foremost is her passion for Jesus Christ; a love for children is not far down on the list. In May 2011, Riggs, 29, a 2005 graduate of Asbury University, took a leap of faith to help satisfy her passions by moving to Ecuador to become a missionary with OMS (One Mission Society) International. Since arriving in Loja, Ecuador, Riggs established Ricon de Aventuras, Adventure Corner in English. That ministry also developed an in-home church in August 2011.

When people tell Heather Mercer they're sorry she had to be in "awful" places like Iraq and Afghanistan, she answers, "Are you crazy? I have the most exciting life on the planet!" Sometimes "it gets too exciting," though, Mercer said while meeting with Asbury Theological Seminary students and faculty. She was referring to the three and a half months she spent in prison in Afghanistan in 2001. "I was not a superhero missionary," she said. "I really struggled. " A recent college graduate, Mercer was in Afghanistan with a group of people who served the poor in Kabul.

Community Missionary Church, located at 702 E. Main St. in Wilmore, has a rich history in Jessamine County. Prior to being built in 1958, the church, founded by the Rev. Lee Dock, first met in Bolar Chapel and then in a house. The construction of the building was led by Amos Greer with a crew of volunteers from the congregation. Inside the yellow brick structure is a tongue-and-groove pine sanctuary with an arched, cathedral-style ceiling. A prayer wall in the rear of the sanctuary gives place to prayer requests and reports of answered prayers, as does a basket of typed requests that is passed around for each member to take and, silently, pray for. The church adds to its prayer ministry the tradition of placing a yellow rose on the communion table when praise reports are given for answered prayers.

NAIROBI, Kenya - Sixty-six "poor urban settlements" - some small, some enormous - bump against Nairobi's sleek, downtown skyline like moths circling a light bulb. Kibera, a 6-kilometer-long expanse of tin-roofed shacks following the railway, is home to 1 million people - one of the largest slums in the world. Mathare counts at least 500,000 people. Dandora surrounds a city dump that stretches as far as the eye can see. The "poor urban settlements" contain more than half of the 4 million people (some say 5 million)

MCKINNEY ? A new Lincoln County missionary organization is bringing the good will and endless energy of local youth back into their own communities, changing more than just homescapes. Near McKinney this week, the sound of circular saws could be heard over the passing train as the Lincoln County Changers built a front porch and hung siding for neighbors in need. Complete with derelict locations and stifling humidity, the mission trip lacked nothing but the passports and an in-flight movie.

Wilmore missionaries Stacie and Sergio Silva are embarking on another adventure. Though the young couple has traveled the world, shared their love for God in Brazil and returned to Kentucky, they feel called to go back, this time with a new mission -  to strengthen families. “Before, we were more focused on just the children,” Stacie said. “But when we returned, we felt God calling us to minister to the family unit as a whole.” Their new calling also came with a blessing of their first child, KayleeAna, who at 2 is already learning Portuguese, English and even knows a little Norwegian.
