Report from Your Secretary/Treasurer

As I write this first report as the Louisiana Secretary-Treasurer of Missions, I feel grateful and humbled. Grateful for the confidence the messengers placed in me and humbled at the task ahead and the legacy of those who have gone before me. I remember Bro. David McCormick who had the foresight to implement our State Project. Through this project many missions, churches and Camp Glenwood has been blessed. My friend, Bro. Nathan Luellen, was faithful in this office and has encouraged me and other missionaries around the state. Their legacy will be hard to follow, but I pledge to do the best I can with God’s help.

For the 2022-2023 associational year, Calvary Baptist Church in Minden requested State Project funds to help eliminate the building debt for Acadiana Baptist Church. At the state association messenger meeting, we were encouraged to know that the debt is slightly under $50,000. This is a testament to the hard work of her missionary, Bro. Jason Hebert, and the diligence of the sponsoring church.

We also have other funds that need attention from time to time. The Emergency Fund is for unexpected emergencies and can be disbursed at the direction of the Standing Missionary Committee between sessions. The General Fund helps with office and travel expenses related to the missions office.

NEW ADDRESS: Please send support to: Louisiana State Missions, PO Box 5972, Shreveport, LA 71135. Make checks payable to Louisiana State Missions, and in the memo line, indicate which fund to deposit the check.

Yours for missions,

Ray Meigs
