Rice For Haiti 2016
Plans had not been made to collect money for rice for Haiti for this year's trip due to all of the other items collected. But, then Hurricane Matthew hit. An untold number of Haitians have lost what little they had. Among that is what little food they had. The need is great for rice to feed them. The missionary we work with in Saintard is helping the hurting area as best she can, but she has a limited supply of rice to give from. Will YOU and your CHURCH help with this need? If so, you can go to https://www.gofundme.com/riceforhaiti2016 to make a contribution, or you can send the money to the North Spartan Baptist Association, PO Box 160159, Boiling Springs, SC 29316. We need the money by Monday, October 24. I leave for Haiti on Friday, October 28. A 55 lb bag of rice is approximately $25.00. How many bags will you buy?

Summer Mission Trip
Twenty volunteers had a great trip to Frankfort, OH, during the month of June. The week consisted of a block party, sports camp, building repair, and a revival. Plans are being worked on for July 2017 to return to Frankfort. I will post the dates as soon as possible.
Pastor's & Wive's Retreat
The annual pastor's and wives retreat is quickly approaching! The date for this year's retreat is Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19. We will be blessed by the music of Lee and Amber James from Fairview Baptist Spartanburg and the preaching of Dr. Tom Tucker, pastor of Sisk Memorial Baptist Church, Fort Mill, SC. We will be meeting at the Bonclarken Conference Center in Flat Rock, NC. More information will be mailed to the pastors at the end of August. (these are a couple of pictures from last year's event)
