Bayfield, Colorado

IMG_1428 Message from Billy: On Thursday I flew to Bayfield to meet with Pastor Randy Ash of First Baptist where I will be spending most of my summer overseeing the building a new sanctuary. The existing sanctuary is old & small. The church is growing rapidly and needs more room. Actually the pastor and youth pastor have moved their offices down the street to help with the demand for class rooms. Please pray for our guidance in this project so that everyone involved may show GOD's love to the community as we labor to labor to build this multipurpose sanctuary.

There is still plenty of room for more volunteers.  If you are interested and would like more information please contact me or Mark Abernathy with NC Baptist Men

Billy will be there for at least two months, June and July.  I hope to be able to go for 1 or 2 weeks.
