The meeting was opened with prayer
by Willie Ree Howell. The minutes of the last meeting were not ready
Willie Ree gave the Treasurerís
Report. The total in the account is $307,364.09. However, $22,000
was transferred to BMC on May 9 for tiles and flooring. This is to
be deducted from the reported total. She also pointed out that
people whom we have helped to go to volunteer at BMC often send back
to the Foundation funds left over from their own fundraising. She
read several notes that have accompanied the checks.
An e-mail from Earl Hewitt was
read, outlining several ways to donate to BMC.
Paul asked for any corrections on
the newsletter that will be printed soon. He announced that William
Haun and his wife will be moving to Macon, Georgia, soon and would
like to attend a board meeting. His wife volunteered at BMC as a
medical student. William went with her, and has used his photography
to help with the BMC website. He also donates a portion of his sale
of prints from Nalerigu to the Foundation.
Jarratt Bryan has updated the Faile
Foundation website with completed projects and a new mission
The board discussed long term plans
for BMC, including staffing and volunteers. David Kearns mentioned
again the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability. The board
supports this idea and will ask Lee Jennings to look into it.
The next meeting of the Board will
be on September 22, 2008.
