Memo To: GMBC Officers, District Presidents & Convention Churches
Subject: Disaster Relief – Houston Texas

I have received many calls about people wanting to assist the victims in Houston and surrounding areas. At this moment there is a need for funds for medication for the elderly, children and for shelter. We cannot make the trip until the water recedes and the road are drivable. As we know Harvey has reversed back in the Gulf and returned inland
dropping about 24 to 36 inches of rain by Thursday.

After speaking with official there and here, we have agreed to allow FEMA, TEMA the ARC to do an assessment of the damages after the water recedes before we go in to assist with clothing, nonperishable items, water, cleaning supplies etc. 

Once I return from Cincinnati on Thursday the 7th I will be traveling there to deliver items, but also minister to the people in the shelters who are focusing on what they have lost and not what they have left. There is a need for tangible items, monetary donations but most important is spiritual need; until we meet the spirit need, the material needs will just be a temporary fix.

Please we are asking all pastors to ask for a special offering this Sunday to go toward the victims in Houston, Texas donations can be sent to Baptist Headquarters; checks/money orders made payable to GMBC and the convention will process a check with the combined donations, sending to the area(s) identified in Houston, Texas.

There is a dire need for those who have expertise in counseling (certified), who would like to travel there, let me know as soon as possible who they are.

It is being asked If you could send an email or make calls to everyone to solicit help, I would be most appreciative.

I can be reached at (478) 746-3469 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call Baptist Headquarters (404) 688-4212.

Gods Blessings,
Together We Can……

busEach year students are expected to purchase an ever-growing list of supplies to bring with them on the first day of school. Gone are the days when kids only needed to bring a notebook and a few pencils. Now, in addition to backpacks, earbuds, USB drives and a variety of pens, pencils, tape, crayons and other items, our children are expected to contribute cleaning supplies for the classroom as well. There are far too many families who struggle to provide for their own children, let alone provide towels, wipes, sanitizer and items for other students to use. Therefore, the Ministers and Moderator’s Department of the General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia, Inc. has collaborated with the Bibb County School District, Macon, GA to help collect school supplies for area elementary and middle schools in need. “I am hopeful that our efforts will prove to be advantageous for as many families and students as possible as well as help lift the financial burden for local teachers who spend their own money on student and classroom supplies” says Reverend Anthony Corbett, Coordinator.

 Ministers, Moderators, Associations and Churches are asked to drop off supplies during the 147th Annual Session November 13—16, 2017 at the Macon Centreplex 200 Coliseum Drive Macon, GA 31217. A School Bus will be parked in the Parking Lot on Monday – Wednesday from 9:00am to 5:00pm and Thursday from 9:00am to 12:00pm. By the end of the four-day event, the bus full of supplies will be driven to a center where the items are packaged by grade and distributed to the most needed elementary and middle schools within the district. Moderator Corbett is asking for volunteers to be on hand to help collect the supplies, bag, and place them on the bus..
