We hope that all of our churches will attend. I want to encourage all pastors and their messengers to please attend. Also, if each pastor will push really hard to get other church members to attend. It will be an annual meeting that will be different than any before. Please plan to attend this celebration of how God is using our association around the world as well as worship God in a Global way.
I want to say how proud I am of our 52 churches and the way you showed the love of Christ during the time when the Irma evacuees was here and afterwards. So many of you volunteered to do whatever was needed as you gave resources and money to help meet the needs of the evacuees. Also, you helped with our LBA Disaster Relief group to get trees off of houses and out of yards. Someone asked me how did I know I could provide for the evacuees when they asked the LBA to help. I told them that I believed in our 52 churches, and they always respond when they are needed. I believed with all of my heart that they would come through, and they did in a big way.
Thank you so much for showing the love of Christ!
Hope to see you at the LBA Annual Meeting,
Don’t forget to bring your Christmas bags for the children of Haiti to our office by October 12th or to the Annual Meeting on October 15th.
