Jordan Edwards and Keziah Chacko on Go Now Missions By: Gretchen Cobble

Every semester, the Baptist Student Ministry (BSM) on campus helps to promote students in taking a leap of faith and participating in a Go Now Missions trip somewhere around the world.


“Go Now Missions mobilizes Texas university students to share the love of Christ across the world,” wrote gonowmissions.com. They help to encourage, facilitate and connect churches, “to fulfill God’s mission of reconciling the world to himself.” Go Now Missions hosts opportunities for Texas Baptist students to serve over Christmas breaks, during the summer months, or even for a full fall or spring semester.


This summer, HSU students Jordan Edwards, a freshman psychology major from Bandera, and Keziah Chacko, a sophomore social work major from Keller, will be serving on Go Now Mission trips.


Jordan Edwards will be traveling to and serving in Seattle, Wash., in the second week of June, 2021. She will be working with a local church to participate in community outreach, ministry for youth/children and evangelism at local coffee shops.


“I really felt compelled to go on a bigger mission after joining the BSM and learning more about how important sharing our faith can be,” Edwards said. “My mission team and the BSM leaders were a big part of helping me [to] feel equipped and spiritually prepared to share the gospel with the people of Seattle.”


Keziah Chacko will be traveling to and serving in Nice, France, in the second and third weeks of July, 2021. She will be working with a holiday camp and a vacation Bible school for over 100 French children.


“I’m really excited to see how the gospel will be spread this summer and how the Lord will use us and me this summer as we go to France,” Chacko said. “I felt led to go because it’s something my heart has always wanted to do, and ministering to kids is something I’ve always had a passion for and now I can fulfill this in another country.”
