Our March board meeting had a pretty good attendance but, oh, how we would LOVE to have ALL of our churches represented! If you are a pastor and cannot attend the board meeting, would you ask a church member or other staff member to attend in your place? That would help to keep everyone informed and up-to-date. Our next board meeting will be Monday, May 2 at Greenhill Community Baptist Church. The meal will be at 6:00pm and the meeting will begin around 6:45. Won't you please join us?
By now, many of our churches have begun prayer walking/driving and some have already hung their invitation bags on doors. We hope this has been a good experience for your church members. Do you have any stories to share? Any feedback on what worked well or what didn't work? Please share your experiences with us.
You should have received your bi-monthly newletter by now. If not, please call the office and we'll send you another one. It was a little late, due to getting the new copier, but we are pleased with the final results! Let us know what you think of the new newsletter. Do you like the format? Is it easy to read? If you recieved yours via email, could you read it easily? What would you like to change or add to it? This newsletter is for YOU, so please give us your feedback.
We have secured location for two billboards to advertise HopePlace. One will be on Hwy 425 North and one on Hwy 425 South. We will have a work day soon and will need some helping hands in getting these put up, so be on the lookout for dates and times.
Bro. David and Fran have just returned from Lawrence, Kansas, where they met with our missionaries and some key people from Haskell Indian Nations University to discuss our mission work for the summer. By the time we have our May board meeting, he will have work all lined out for the participating churches. There will also be a Kansas Missions meeting; date and time to be announced at the board meeting.
Speaking of Kansas...there is a need that we would like to try to meet. We are looking for a small (5-6 ft.), retractable video screen that would hang from a ceiling. If your church or someone you know has one and would be willing to donate it, let us know. ALSO, to go along with that screen, we need a small video projector. Perhaps your church is upgrading to a bigger one and could donate the old, small one to be used in the Student Ministry at Haskell. If you can help with these needs, please contact the BBA office.
One last thing...We have received news from our missionaries in Hungary that one of the students who attended our English camp last summer has accepted Christ as his Savior and Lord! We rejoice with him and ask that you pray that his family and friends will not only accept his decision, but that they, too, will want to know Jesus in a personal way!
