The Great Commission
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20)

As some of you know one of our recent LBA pastors and his wife have been called as full time missionaries to Haiti. Rev Kyle and Jennifer Giddens has recently resigned from where they had served at Olivet Baptist Church. They are now a part of and serve with Good Shepherd Ministries. Since the Giddens served with the LBA we have decided that we will support their ministry and mission for the children in Haiti. At Christmas each year this ministry has “The Hope of Christmas” bags. This is Christmas for the children of Haiti. It is a clear 13x15 bag that you are asked to fill. Please see this insert for all the information.
I feel we all know something about the great and many needs of the people in Haiti. Since the Giddens are a part of this ministry we are assured the children do receive these bags. I am glad we know this because we have all probably heard what usually happens to items and money sent to Haiti. Our goal is to fill 1500 bags. The 13x15 bags are at the LBA for you to pick up! We want everyone to know that we don’t want this to stop anyone or any of our churches from giving to the “Operation Christmas Child, Christmas Shoeboxes” ministry.
If you or your church would like to help:
You may wish to rotate page 2 clockwise after downloading the file to make the forms stand straight. Also, on that page you will need to write LBA on the line just before the words “for the shipping and related expenses”. On the next line you will need to fill in that line with the words: October 15, 2017.
The reason we are giving the date October 15th is because we will pray over them during our LBA Annual Meeting on that day. This year the LBA Annual Meeting is October 15, 2017 at Dudley Baptist Church. Church Messengers will need to be there 4:00pm-4:20pm. The meeting begins at 4:30pm.
