Thank you for all your prayer concerns for our recent trip to the Disaster area of West Virginia. Between 1200-1300 businesses and houses were flooded. Robert Driggers, Johnny Mack, and myself toured two areas of West Virginia. We toured sections of the flooded area and visited John Thompson, Coalfield Baptist Association, Director of Missions, in Gilbert and have established Logan as the central hub for his association. Dennis Cherry, Allegheny Associationof Southern Baptist Churches, Director of Missins, was so appreciative of receiving the checks, Lowe's gift cards, Walmart gift cards, and shirts. I have many heart breaking images and had the honor to pray with Pastor Randy Gilliam, White Sulphur Springs, who's fourteen year old niece, Mykala Phillips, was swet away in the flood and has never been found. The unofficial death total is 26 people.?
Partners Prayer Needs, West Virginia
Everyone effected by the flood of the following rivers: Elk, Gauley, Birch, Greenbrier, and Howard Creek (the creek that flooded Greenbrier Golf Club, PGA). Please pray for devasted communities like: Elk View, Clendenin, Nebo, Rainelle, Rupert, Hines, Alta, Richwood, Crawley, and White Sulphur Springs, just a few communities flooded by several rivers, Creeks, and brooks that over ran their banks.
West Virginia Partnership and Expanded Area
One new area within our allegheny Association Partnership recently visited would be the Northeast territory around Huntersville. One possible opportunity will be at the Greenbrier Birthing Center, Denmar. We have begun to build relationships in Southwest, West Virginia. John Thompson, the Associational Missionary, of the Coalfields Baptist Association, will be at our Appalachian Summit. Some of the poorest Counties in West Virginia, a nd in the U.S.A., are located in his Baptist Association. The new expanded area where we are beginning to build relationships, share networks, and establish partnerships is in the heart of where coal mines are being shut down. Dennis Cherry, Director of Missions, of Allegheny Association of Southern Baptist Churches will be at the Appalachian Summit. Bill Barker, Appalachian Regional Ministry (A.R.M.-13 states) will be our key-note speaker.
