Dear Co-laborers in Christ,

We are praising the Lord for his mercy on Southwest Georgia when Irma came through. We do need to be in prayer for those who lost so much during the storm. I want to say thanks to those churches in Bowen Association who were able to step to the plate and help out with those that had to leave Florida and for those who had to leave their homes locally. A special thanks to FBC Bainbridge, FBC Donalsonville, Flat Creek, Fellowship, Faceville, Climax, Iron City, Spring Creek, Springfield, and West Bainbridge for sharing your facilities with those who were in need. There may have been others that we have not heard about that opened their doors to these people. I know there were individuals who also helped in different ways.

Mt. Zion Baptist made contact with a church in Webster, Texas, south of Houston, and took a large trailer load of supplies out to them. Many have indicated they would help with the “Buckets of Hope” that we were gathering in. At this time we do not have a count on the buckets but will share next month. This is what the church is all about; reaching out with Christ’s love to show the people in distress that God cares about them. We must always be ready for these special moments to be ready to share Christ.

I was disturbed as I heard over and over again, that “mother nature” was doing all of this. God is the one who is in control of the rain, the wind, and even the thunder and lightning. We need to give him the glory for what is going on and not the secular, godless, humanistic society we live in. God definitely was merciful in reducing “Irma” with weather elements the meteorologists were not expecting. Praise His Holy Name!

We are coming to a close on Bride of Christ Church as the carpet has been laid, bathroom petitions are in, the molding finished, and the touch up work is being done. We received a variance from the City of Bainbridge allowing us to put crushed concrete down instead of having to pave the whole area for now. Praise the Lord.

I want to thank all the churches for your help on this project. If you haven’t sent in your B. Frank Cochran offering taken in July, please do so as soon as possible so we can close out with a low indebtedness for this young church. Some have offered individual gifts of which we are so thankful.

I want to thank Keith and Jujuan Bowen for helping with the Smoked Pork Butts to help raise money for the Alpha Pregnancy Center. Please pray for the new director, Karren Green, as she now leads the center. She is a member of Climax Baptist.

Please continue to pray for me and Brenda as we are so thankful for being able to serve with you all in  Southwest Georgia.

Your servants in the Lord,
Bro. Ken Cloud
