It is with a tremendous urgency we write this correspondence. Many of you have received our petition for prayer an support, and we are thankful for those who have helped. However, Bethel Missionary Baptist church is in danger of defaulting on our Post Hurricane Katrina construction loan in the amount of a $60,000.00. There has been little response to our request for support due to us being an established church and not a mission. Although we understand each church’s decision in this matter, we are very concerned that without the support, we will default on our debt.
Bethel is an establish church which organized on May 30, 1943 with Oaklawn Missionary Baptist church of Hot Springs, Arkansas as our sponsoring church. Today, we have thirty-nine members on our roster with less than half faithfully active. We have many children who regularly attend, and most Wednesday night services the adults are outnumbered two to one. Bethel is the only ABA work in the entire south shore area with the nearest work over forty miles away. We believe that if Bethel were to close her doors, it would be a great loss to the New Orleans area.
We please for your fervent prayers in this matter, and if the Lord moves you to help support the work here in New Orleans, that you would please do so. May God bless you and cause his face to shine upon you.
In HIS Service

Brooks Bethel MBC in Alexander would like to see if we could make a post on the bulletin board to fulfill a need for a church van for our church. Below is a write up explaining our current need and situation. Thank you for your consideration regarding this matter.
Brooks Bethel Baptist Church is looking for a used 12-15 passenger church van that a sister church may have that they are no longer using. We are willing to discuss a price but at this point in time would be unable to afford to pay very much. This van would be used for our youth ministries12 on Wednesday and other outreach events that we do in our community. If your church has a van that is not being used at this time or you know of someone that has one please contact our Pastor Buddy Fowler at 870-917-9592 or Bro. Ronnie Parker at 501-317-6901. We can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faith Missionary Baptist Church has recently remodeled it's sanctuary, and has it's old pews we would like to donate to any church or mission who might be in need of them. If your church or mission is interested you can contact me by email email@example.com or by phone (479)213-1288 or Daniel Kesterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (479)213-3680.
