"There is no promotion above the will of God"

Evang. Junior Hill

Director of Missions . . . . . .

Dear Co-laborers in Christ,

Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised! While Southwest Ga. has just experienced a mighty demonstration of God's power, we have seen a greater manifestation of his mercy. Nahum 1:3, "God has his way in the whirlwind." We have all experienced hardships,with many losing their homes or having a lot of damage. However, we have also seen a demonstration of caring and compassion as people began to reach out to help each other. Our churches were able to reach out to their communities and share the love of Jesus through their relief efforts.

On a larger scale, we were blessed by Georgia Baptist Disaster relief, which came in with chain saw crews and volunteers who prepared over 76,000 meals. We have had teams come in from other churches and other associations helping with the massive clean up. Georgia Baptist Disaster relief is your cooperative program giving at work. I, personally, have been overwhelmed by the help from other people.

We will continue to have teams come in for the next several months. Please pray for these teams as they go around helping and sharing the love of Christ. We know of 50 precious souls that have been saved so far. This is the purpose of helping in relief. It is not just about cutting trees down and passing out water. These are merely tools to give us the opportunity to share the gospel.

Many have asked about my physical problem with my heart. I did not have a heart attack. I did have a spell with my heart. However, the good news is that it is not critical and I am recovering. I am under Doctor's care. Please continue to pray for Brenda and I. We are grateful for the privilege of serving the Lord with you all.

Please continue to pray for me and Brenda as we serve with you. We appreciate all the prayers for Brenda with her health issues and please continue to pray for her as she still has some problems. We love you folks and thank God for you all! 
Your servants in the Lord,
Ken and Brenda Cloud


Please continue to pray for the outreach of Bowen Association. Please note and share that the new hours of the Alpha Pregnancy Center are from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Tuesday and 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Wednesday. We believe this will increase the opportunity for more people who work or are in school to come by the center. Please continue to pray for this ministry and for volunteers to help staff the center. This is a ministry that we partner with Sherwood Baptist in Albany.

The Bowen Association has also began holding regular services at Riverside Assisted Living in Bainbridge each week on Tuesday @ 9:30 a.m. Please pray for the men who will be sharing in this ministry. The Bowen Association is also helping to sponsor a new ministry called “My 85” with Susan Lanier as the director. This ministry will be reaching out to mothers in the community to help them with language skills and how to be better mothers plus share the Gospel as the opportunity arises. Please pray as this is being developed and will be starting soon. We will share more about this later.

Also, be praying for Brenda as she has resumed her Bible Studies with the Harvest House of Hope. She has been doing this over 3 years now. This is a ministry reaching out to  women who are having battles with drugs and alcohol. Ms. Sissy Franklin is the director of this ministry. God has greatly blessed this ministry and several have been saved. Recently 3 were baptized at Eldorendo Baptist Church.

I praise the Lord for the opportunities that God is giving us in Southwest Georgia to reach out to the lost. Please pray that God would raise up laborers to gather in the harvest for the fields are “white unto harvest”.
