Dear David: 
 
I have just received the incredibly generous gift of $5000 for disaster recovery here in South Georgia. This is overwhelming to me! It has been 25 years since this conference has had a major disaster and in my first six months here we have now had three disasters: Hurricane Matthew;  the January 2 straight-line winds in Albany;  and the January 22 tornadoes covering a wide area in two of our districts, including Albany. The loss of life and the level of damage has been heartbreaking. So this tangible expression of our connectional system means more than we can adequately express.
 
Please share our deep gratitude with the entire Alabama-West Florida Conference. Your gift is giving us renewed commitment to the long term recovery effort that is underway.
 
On behalf of the 600 hundred churches of the South Georgia Conference, thank you!
 
Alive Together in Christ,
 
R. Lawson Bryan
