Student Missions Blog: We saw home after home with “for sale” signs in front. FEMA trailers were here and there to provide a home for those lucky enough to receive one. It was sad to see debris still everywhere and for some houses to be in the condition there were in.

God gives each of us a calling, a unique way to be a part of God’s purposes. God can lead us to discover that calling, and God can guide us in finding ways to express that calling—both through work and all that makes up who we are.

As Donald Trump enters the White House, evangelicals and other conservative Christians who helped put him there face a crucial challenge: Can they influence his administration to uphold Christian virtues they had to overlook when they cast their ballots?

Introduction
The Baptist Standard is a widely read and highly respected publication focused on Baptists, religion around the globe, trends affecting faith and life, missions, ministries, and faithful people.

Mission

The mission of the Baptist Standard is to inform, inspire, equip and empower people to follow Christ and expand the kingdom of God.

To accomplish our mission, we publish the Baptist Standard – our website and weekly digital edition (www.baptiststandard.com) and CommonCall: The Baptist Standard Magazine – our monthly magazine of inspiration and information (www.baptiststandard.com/commoncall).

We strive for our publications to unify Baptists across Texas and the globe to accomplish far more together than we could on our own.

Through the Baptist Standard and CommonCall, we seek to disseminate information relevant to the growth and welfare of Baptist people, promote work sponsored and promoted by Texas Baptists and cooperating churches and organizations, develop a fuller understanding of Baptist doctrines, encourage high moral standards and spiritual formation among all peoples and help every Christian fulfill his or her calling.
