Freeport, Bahamas and Carolinas
September 05, 2019
Greeting my fellow laborers in love for Christ:
I pray that this letter finds you all well. This is the time of year that we have much trepidation due to the disasters as we have seen in the last week or so by Hurricane Dorian. Unfortunately, these storms seem to intensify each year causing lives, resources and displacement of people.
Due to the destruction left in Freeport, Bahamas and Carolinas. They are at the mercy of us for aid and assistance that can be afforded to them. Though it is difficult to get to the island by planes and ships at this moment, there are private entities and the Coast Guard who are making every effort to deliver water, goods, non-perishable items, toiletries, clothing (“NEW CLOTHES ONLY” to include “NEW UNDERWEAR” of all sizes for males and females, children) and monetary gifts.
This letter is a request from you to assist me in assisting them on behalf of our great convention. Will you ask for a special offering on this Sunday and Sundays to come that will go directly to those affected so that we can purchase generators, solar panel lights, food etc. To get them started on the way to at least some form of recovery.
Please make all checks out to GMBC of GA, Inc. Disaster Relief and mail to headquarters P O Box 92340 Atlanta, GA 30314, or in the App – Givelify (Disaster Relief).
Items can be delivered to the church address above (Beulah Baptist, Macon) or call (478-746-3469 Church (478-361-4504 my cell) for mutual pickup, one centralized location within the District.
P.S. This will be a long road to recovery and as often and as much as you can assist would be greatly appreciated. Let GMBC of GA continue to be a paradigm in the recovery efforts after disasters, in which I owe all to you great pastors and church for your help.
Please feel free to contact me for any questions or advise you may have to help expedite this recovery effort. I NEED YOUR HELP.
