Exhibits to feature Missions and Ministry Projects sponsored by local churches, associations, and LBC ministries.

Two proposals will be made by the DOM at our annual meetings. The proposals will be acted on by the Executive Boards in January so that both associations can have input.
I propose that the Executive Boards of Bienville and Webster-Claiborne Baptist Associations consider transferring ownership of the Disaster Relief Laundry Unit to Carey Baptist Association in Lake Charles.
Rolling Hills has Laundry and Shower Units and our unit is now redundant, idle much of the time. Also, South Louisiana is the focus of most DR work and Lake Charles also can use the Laundry Unit for homeless shelter.
I propose that the Executive Boards of Bienville and Webster-Claiborne Baptist Associations consider transferring our construction tools, that were originally used for Katrina Rebuild and also a mission church construction ministry (that is no longer active), to Camp Harris. Tools consist of framing nail guns, saws, drills, and air compressor. The camp has constant need for tools and can better utilize our equipment.
