Women in Action missions group of Red Oak Baptist Church met together on Tuesday, May 14 at the church. They learned about and prayed for missionaries of the month and also participated in a project. The group made socks filled with rice to donate to the Nash County Pet Connection. Rice socks can be used at animal shelters as heating pads. They can be warmed in the microwave and soothe animals that have had surgery and provide warmth for kittens and puppies. The group also collected items for Meredith Walujjo to use in her ministry in Uganda with the children. The next Women in Action meeting will be Tuesday, June 11.
