Thank You for your prayers

Cathy and I are so appreciative of your prayers.  My recovery from the very serious car crash is ahead of schedule. My right shoulder is about 85-95% of where it needs to be and my left shoulder is 70-75% of where it needs to be. One more month of physical therapy should be all I need to be at near 100%. Your prayers, emails, cards, financial aid, and Christian concern for my health and welfare are received with heart felt gratitude.   

2016 “Bridges to Missions”

Mark your calendars for anExciting Celebration Event that will both bless and inform you about the work in our association and our two year partnership with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board.”  This unique annual meeting and partnership celebration is scheduled for October 22, and 23, 2016.  The annual meeting will be Saturday, October 22, 2016, at Pine View Baptist Church in the Sanctuary from 4:00PM until 5:30PM.  The Celebration Banquet will be at 6:00PM in the Family Life Center.  On Sunday, October 23, 2016, Georgia Baptist State Missionaries will be available to preach, teach, share testimonies or help lead in all our churches who would desire them to serve. I hope you have received and reviewed the detailed letter with all the particular activities stated.

State Missionary in Your Church, Oct 23

Part of this special weekend is the opportunity for our Associational Churches to both experience and support (at no cost to your church) a Georgia Baptist Mission Board Missionary involved in your church as part of our “Unique Weekend.”    

Appalachian Summit

Thank you to all speakers, missionaries, Associational Missionaries, participants, and helpers. Three people need to be especially thanked are as follows: Johnny Mack for all his work before during and after the event, Gail Griner for her work on all the planning and logistics, John Dickerson for his work as our technician. We had around 95-105 participants during both days. Several churches connected with churches in West Virginia, and mission work in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

          In His Secure Grip,

            Dr. “B”
 

AUGUSTA PROJECT

Reciprocating Partnership: Our association will be collecting Backpacks starting October 10 through October 28, 2016. Delivery and distribution will be November 18-19, 2016. Detailed information will be forthcoming. Please pray about our Baptist Association partnering with an additional Baptist Association, Coalfields Baptists Association, Rev. John Thompson, Associational Missionary. A team will leave on November 17th to accomplish some preliminary logistics. If your church is led of the Lord to be involved with backpacks delivery or a distribution team to go to West Virginia, contact Johnny Mack, 706 312-4479. Your pastor should have received all the needed information and logistical details.     

Evangelism Training and Projects: Dr. B. will be conducting an Evangelism Conference at Greater Young Zion, Thursday through Saturday, September 1-3.  Teaching sessions will be Thursday and Friday, 6:30PM-8:30PM.  Training will be Saturday, 8AM-10AM, with the “Doing” part of the session from 10AM-12PM.  The focus will be training in how to utilize your testimony to lead into a Gospel Presentation.

Cross Cultural Commission: The next Very Important Cross Cultural Committee meeting is Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 6:30PM at The Augusta Mission Center. Please make every effort to attend because the Urban/Inter City Institute will be discussed.  Our goal will be to provide certificate and diploma training in a mission institute environment with the possibility of experiencing particular application in a mission laboratory setting.  The institute’s curriculum and its training will be both affordable and easily accessible.  

The Augusta Mission Center:  All the exterior light except one additional light is now installed.  There are three new roofs.  Half the new doors are installed.  Three new showers are almost completed upstairs.  Please pray about the funding needed for a fire escape and fire extinguisher system to be installed in the hood over the stove, and three more showers that need to be installed down stairs.
