Good Samaritan Baptist Mission

This mission organization was founded in 1968 by husband and wife Bob and Joan Tyson from Villa Rica, Georgia.  They host mission groups year round, plant churches, raise money too feed the poor, and fund a private Christian school for children whose tuition, room and board, clothing and meals are supported by sponsors. For mission teams like DCF, they provide room and board, hearty meals, transportation, and areas for fellowship and worship.
