Recruiting a local Disaster Response team in response to Harvey
The need continues.  See below.
If you are in any way interested in going, please let me know.  I'd like to gather a team that can share the driving.  I'm thinking Liberty Texas to do clean out.  No training required.
I have the association trailer and an stocking it with what is needed.
I have a truck that can pull the trailer.  Can fit 3 more in the truck.  If we have more, we can car pool another vehicle.  The Association will spring for our gas money.
Encourage others to join us.  No training is required for the clean out.  It is required for the feeding.
I encourage everyone to attend the DR training at Waynesboro FBC on Oct 7th.  That will renew your credentials and qualify you in both feeding and clean out.

You are encouraged to participate in our response to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  You can read more about the state-wide effort at the BGAV website or on Facebook.  Below you will find attachments for the list of items for hygiene kits, flood buckets. and a video about assembling the bucket items.  One collection location will be:

Linden Heights Baptist Church
371 Linden Dr.
Staunton

Receiving and collection times will be forthcoming, or call the Augusta Assoc. Office at 434-770-4632, Dave Anderson, Director of Missions, Augusta Baptist Association of Virginia..

Doris Carter who chairs our ABAV Senior Adult Ministry shares the following additional information….

We have the supply list for both the FLOOD BUCKETS as well as the HYGIENE LIST that BGAV has put up.  Beginning Monday, Sept. 4, 2017, Linden Heights will receive the above from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. They will be accepted from any individual or church wishing to participate.  The buckets will be thoroughly gone over and any items missing will be noted and tagged on that bucket.  We will try to have some extra items available to use if needed.  We ask that anyone filling a bucket that cannot find a needed item please mark what is missing on a slip of paper and attach to bucket.

We will notify everyone when evening hours are added and will continue collecting until we are given a cutoff date.

This is an excellent opportunity for the Senior Adult Ministry to be involved, thanks.

Doris.

Fellow ABAV Friends and Family,
Please make time this Fall for your Annual Augusta Association gathering, business meeting and worship.

This important event will take place at 7:00 PM on Monday, October 16, at Stuarts Draft Baptist Church, 2517 Stuarts Draft Hwy.   Reports will be shared from the various groups of the Augusta Association plus goals and budget will be adopted for 2018.  Lynn Litchfield, Director of Development for GraceInside, will share her vision of hope for prison ministry.

Come see and hear what is happening in your Augusta Association, as we continue "Striving Together As One for the Gospel"

Please encourage all from your congregation to attend.  Everyone is welcome!  However each church is asked to designate up to 5 messengers who will represent the congregation in business matters and have voting privileges.  It would be helpful if the names of those 5 messengers would be shared our Association Clerk, Charlie Downs, prior to the day of the annual meeting. He may be contacted at:  gloucester@ntelos.net;

I hope to see you at Stuarts Draft Baptist on Oct. 16!  Please feel free to contact me at any time.

In Christ,
Dave Anderson
