FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS

Summer is upon us and it has a lot of terrific events in store. Of course most of our churches will be offering the opportunity for kids to be involved in VBS, children’s and youth church camps and one day block party events. There also are plenty of opportunities to go on mission in the association, the state, the U. S., and of course destinations around the world.

A particularly popular event right now is the Foster Parent weekend retreat on July 28th, and 29th, at KBA. Our registration for this event is soaring and we already have 237 foster parents and children registered to be there. That means we will need volunteers to help us that weekend.

There are plenty of things for volunteers to do. We need help working the front gate and help with organization during the event. Our Disaster Relief cooking crew will be assisting with the meals and we could use your help in this area. There will also be infants and toddlers at the event and we will need some volunteer to help us during the training hours and the tabernacle time with taking care of the young children. Another ministry help during this time will be for some of our certified chaplains to be there to minister to folks as needed. We would appreciate any help you might be able to give on either the Saturday or Sunday of this event. Please email or call us to get signed up.

Also I want you to know that Vicky and I, along with Jim and Mattie Crouch, are leaving for Haiti on mission on June 2nd, and will be back on June 9th. We covet your prayers as we will be working with a large group from other associations to minister to the Haitian people. While we are there we will be assisting physicians and medical staff on a critical medical mission as well us working construction, providing sports camps, VBS and filling other needs in the area.

Now I want to change gears for just a minute. We know how much you guys love receiving the Le Flore Baptist Newsletter. However, the summers have become so busy with all of the things we are doing at the associational level it has become difficult for us to find volunteers that can come together to help us fold and address the newsletter plus Valorie and I are going to be working on local, state and worldwide mission trips much of the summer. With these things in mind we are going to suspend the monthly newsletter for the summer and pick it back up in September. We hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience, but it is the right thing to do.

Also, we are going to change the date when the newsletter comes out each month. The next newsletter you get will be sent at the end of the first week of September and you can expect it during the first seven days of each month rather than on the first of the month from now on. This will help us to get up to date, end of month reports to you with more accuracy.
