Our SBA churches are invited to minister to the thousands who will attend Bedford’s CenterFest Street Festival on Saturday, September 27, 2014. In our Lord’s name we pass out complimentary water to all who visit our booth. We also provide a Baby Care Station which offers moms and dads a convenient and clean place to care for the needs of their small children. Some volunteers prefer prayer walking. If you have other ideas for sharing God’s love in this venue, contact the association office. Our time slots are being filled now—call to reserve your time.

We helped provide the Mission Team that went to Nicaragua with Because We Care Ministry on a mission trip July 19-26, 2014, with 25 pairs of flip-flops, 16 headbands/bandanas and a bag of small stuffed animals.

Can we do it again?????? Yes we can!!!!!

Suck Spring has a team that will be going September 13-20, 2014. They are asking for donations of: flip-flops, sunglasses, caps, plastic bowls (available at WalMart), stuffed animals, and children's clothes.

If your church was not able to participate last time, please prayerfully consider helping with this mission.

Please have the items either at the Strawberry Baptist Association by August 28, 2014, or call Kim Kirby at 540.330.8071 or email pow8tan@gmail.com to arrange for pick-up at your church.

I appreciate your help and support with this project.
