Good Day Family,

In spite of more than half of our facility being unoccupiable due to the storm damage, we still have been able to host the City-Wide Revival for the National Capital Baptist Convention of DC and Vicinity. The first two nights have been an absolute High Time in the Lord. It has been a tremendous blessing to be able to host all of our Churches and we have done it in grand style. Thank you to all of the Mount Airyians who came and contributed to this Spiritual Success.
 
We are told that the electricians have completed their work for the emergency phase of our restoration project. Remember we have three phases of the project; the emergency phase is the first phase. We are now looking to enter the second phase which is the restoration phase. The restoration phase encompasses permanently sealing the roof on both the Educational Building and the Sanctuary, plus renovating all areas affected by the storm, both on the interior and exterior of the Building. There is much work that needs to be done. Before any of this work commences the Insurance Company will give us their assigned scope of work. We then would have to approve any work before it actually begins. The Insurance Company’s scope of work is based on what their Insurance field adjuster sees. We would then review their scope and place in context what we see needs to be done. This would begin the negotiations. It is in this area of negotiations that we feel the Church would be best served by a reputable company who knows the landscape and who knows how speak “Insurance Detailed Language.”
 
As of late this afternoon we have agreed in principle to work with the 3G’s Company International, who will represent us in all negotiations involving this claim. We will discuss more about the 3G’s Company in our upcoming Church Conference Meeting. Because of the phase we are in right now, we may not see any actual physical work being performed on the building for a few days. Those few days will be necessary for the new adjusters to get on top of all the details involved in our policy which will help them and us in our negotiations. Join me in thanking God for what He is doing and for how He is going about doing it.
 
Keep the faith beloved and know that our God is already at work behind the scenes, just as He said He would, Alleluia. He has and He continues preparing us to do “Greater and More Wonderful Works” as He helps us, even In the aftermath of the storm to “Discover New Possibilities.”
 

Pastor L.B. West

CONFIDENTIAL SERVICES

“Can I speak to you, confidentially?
Our church leaders are asked some form of this question at least several times a year. Normally it comes from within the church, but it can also be voiced by nonattendees. For relationally gifted leaders with a ethical or pastoral care obligation, requests for confidential conversations are more frequent.


Need to speak to someone who will respect your confidentiality.  Did you know our counselors are bound by God and the state law to   never reveal the content of your personal counseling session.  Call 202.842.3698 to schedule an appointment for a confidential counseling session.

If you have a prayer request, please take a minute now to fill in the confidential prayer request form and allow our team to lift you up in powerful prayer. (Valid email address required.).  Be blessed.

 Misdiagnoses Can be Fatal 

Misdiagnoses Having a healthcare professional misdiagnose an ailment or disease is common. It is a little unnerving to think that the place we go for care can end up being a place that does us harm.  Yet, research has found that in 2014, approximately 12 million people may have been wrongly diagnosed.  Read more...

Get a Second Opinion

Deep vein thrombosis, also known as blood clots, is one diagnosis that is often misdiagnosed. Sometimes the swelling associated with this can be misdiagnosed as a pulled muscle. The issue that can occur is that a doctor may not know to scan or screen for the true cause. Sometimes a doctor may be reluctant to screen, but it is important to request that this be done and to get a second opinion. Read more…
