Every Christmas the Beto Junction Truckers Ministry passes out cookie plates provided by churches in Flint Hills Baptist Association in Kansas.

Beto Junction is located at the junction of Interstate 35 and U.S. Highway 75. It is centrally located between Burlington, Emporia, Topeka and Ottawa and draws its name from the first letter of those communities.

Flint Hills Baptist Association shared the following Facebook post:

Lonnie Davis, director of the Beto Junction Truckers Ministry, shared some exciting news about the annual “Christmas Cookie” ministry.

First off, he clarified it wasn’t just cookies this year — COVID has changed so much. But this ministry adapted well and asked for pre-packaged items for safe distribution. Overall, there were 11 churches who participated this year for a total of 572 plates!! WOW!!

The following churches participated:

  • Countryside Baptist Church, Americus
  • North Baptist Church, Ottawa
  • Ruhamah Baptist Church, Rantoul
  • First Southern Baptist Church, Ottawa
  • 12th Avenue Baptist Church, Emporia
  • Topeka Gospel Church, Topeka
  • Light of LaHarpe, LaHarpe
  • Indian Avenue Baptist Church, Lawrence
  • First Southern Baptist Church, Lawrence
  • First Baptist Church, Burlington
  • Eudora Baptist Church, Eudora

Thank you in a huge way to everyone from these churches who donated their time, money and items for the plates. It was a blessing to many no doubt. Thanks as well to those who were at the truck stop during the Christmas holiday and gave away the “cookie plates” — being Jesus to the world and blessing travelers who may never be this way again with Christmas kindness in the name of Jesus.
