A weekly update bulletin from the desk of The Rev. Dr. Dee Wellington Bright, LECUSA CHAIRMAN 


Dr. Elwood Dunn's Status:
In a conversation with Dr. Elwood Dunn this week concerning the status of his healing, he indicated that his wounded eye is still being treated. He still cannot see through that eye. I ask your continuing prayers for him as it is not certain whether he will ever be able to use that eye again. That determination will be made in a few months from now.
To my utmost surprise, I learned that Dr. Dunn was able to resumed his writing project in spite of the situation. With just one eye, he is laboring to complete the sequel of his work on the History of Episcopal Church of Liberia. He has such tenacious spirit. Please keep him in your prayers.

Vice Chair-lady's Trip:
Over the past weekend, our Vice Chair-Lady, Marie Hayes, made a family trip to Worcester, Massachusetts and turned it into a LECUSA outreach. She was able to promote and make contacts that will enable LECUSA to make some inroads in that area. Here is her report on it:
...On Saturday, June 1st, I was in Worcester and decided to connect with Liberians of Episcopal descent residing in the Worcester area. I did connect with Mr. Fester Konneh, Sr. Warden at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church and several Liberian members of the church when I attended their service on Sunday, June 2nd. I was asked to introduce myself...I also met other Episcopalians at various graduation barbecues attended on Saturday and Sunday. They are excited about your visit in June (the pending visit of the membership chair, Benoni Grimes)...I am copying my sister and brother-in-law, also former members of St. Matthew's who can connect you with Fester and others. Charles and his wife, Korpo (my sister) are very good contacts for getting folks together in Worcester. I have requested their support for LECUSA even though they are currently not attending an Episcopal church.
Note: This report is an example of initiatives that all LECUSA members can take where-ever they travel.

Membership Committee Chairman's trip
Brother Benoni Grime is due to also make visits to Worcester and Rhode Island soon. He will also use the opportunity to coordinate efforts towards organizing a LECUSA group in these areas. Thanks to his many good efforts.

Result of the Joint Committee Meeting:
On this past Thursday, the Pastoral Care Committee and the Membership Committee had a joint meeting for the purpose coordinating areas of overlapping responsibilities. Brother Grimes and Fr. Wilson, (of the membership committee), will work in collaboration with Fr. Mitchell (head of the Pastoral Care Committee), with regards to remitting news of condolences in the name of LECUSA

May this serve as a kind reminder that those who intend to suggest items for amendment to LECUSA's By-laws would need to do so on or ASAP. The By-laws committee is getting back to work to finalize the amendment process soon."...please act now or forever hold your peace!

Maryland in Preparation
LECUSA members in the State of Maryland are now in the early stages of planing the hosting of our 2020 Annual Gathering there. I spoke with Jackie Cooper this past week and was impressed by the momentum. In addition to organizing the host committee, they are currently trying to secure a hall suitable enough for he 2020 event.
Please keep them in your prayers as they take these initial preparatory steps.
