Thank you for your prayers and support

Cathy and I are so appreciative of your prayers, phone calls, text, get well cards, support, and love expressed for us.  I now enter the phase of eight weeks of physical therapy.  I am so blessed and honored to be your Associational Missionary Minister.  Please continue to pray for all our Mission and Ministry activities that are underway.

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, and 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.

    World Changers/P2 Combo Project Report

 

We have now completed another World Changers/P2 Combo Project.  During this week 9 houses were repaired and completed.  We also had 4 Ministry sites.  The projects through the years have touched the lives of literally thousands of people. 

It is impossible to complete a project the size of this without the help and support of many people.  I want to personally thank Fleming Baptist Church, and the staff for providing their facilities for this years World Changers/P2 Combo Project.  I also need to thank the kitchen staff for preparing and serving the meals every day.  They got up at 3:00 a.m. to be ready for breakfast by 6:00 a.m. and back in the afternoon by 2:30 p.m. to have dinner at 5:30 p.m.  My thanks to Susan & Bobby Perkins, Steve & Gail Griner, Deborah and Zack Canuette, Justin Mayfield, Danier, Trey, and Lauren Caines, Cullen Rhoden, Erin Holley, Bobby, Anna Beth, Jackson and Preston Perkins, Cathy Boudreaux, and Leslie Adams.  A special thanks to the churches that provided a meal each day at lunch for our Construction Crews:  Dayspring, Fleming, Grace, Evans, Hillcrest, Open Door, Miracle, Warren-Grovetown, Whispering Pines, Windsor Heights, and Windsor Spring.  A special thanks to the churches that provided a meal each day at lunch for our Mission Crews:  Pine Hill, Evans, First, Hopeful, and Martinez.  Thank you for all the Prayer Warriors. 

We have been very fortunate over the years not to have any major accidents, but just in case, we have always had a nurse that has been willing to be available.  This year I want to thank Andrea Riggs serving in this capacity.  Thank you to Dr. Dwayne Boudreaux as Ministry Coordinator, Claude Gore as Project Coordinator, Jody Stevens, Construction Coordinator, and Gail Griner who served as our Associational Coordinator. Gail was a tremendous help in recruiting the churches and other personnel to complete the staffing of this year’s World Changers/P2 Combo Project.  Thanks to everyone for a job well done.

The dates for World Changers/P2 Combo Project-Augusta 2017 are June 10-16, 2017.
