In the Rainelle, WV area, the UPCI West Virginia / western Maryland District is teamed up with Bro. Larry Williamson out of the South Texas District and Reach Out America. UPCI Pastor Chad Smailes is overseeing a 40,000-square-foot facility, which is the old Magic Mart in Rainelle. We need many volunteers right now to help unload and distribute all the product that's been brought in. If you can help in anyway it would be much appreciated.
Also tomorrow, Friday, July 1, Channel 17 of Fayette County will be having a tel-a-thon for the relief effort by Reach Out America and the UPCI West Virginia / western Maryland District for the Rainelle area. All proceeds will go straight to the Rainelle effort. We have a 26-foot box truck with a lift gate rented, and it will be located at the Kroger in Oak Hill, and anything that you could give for that effort would be much appreciated.
Also on Tuesday, July 5, UPCI Pastor Eugene Whetzel (district North American Missions Director) will be taking a crew of men to help rebuild the devastated church in Charmco, WV. We have 120 sheets of plywood that will be reinstalled in that facility (including sanctuary and Sunday school rooms). If you can join that crew it will be greatly appreciated. Contact info for Pastor Whetzel: NAMdir@wvupci.org
Also on Tuesday, July 5, UPCI Pastor Anthony Moss will be taking a crew of men to help rebuild the devastated church in Clendenin, WV. If you can join that crew it will be greatly appreciated. Contact info for Pastor Moss: MossAnthonyMoss@aol.com

The following is the transcript of a "ONE CALL NOW" update from Bishop David Hudson, Superintendent of the West Virginia / western Maryland District, UPCI:
"This is the bishop speaking, and I wanted to touch base with our West Virginia & western Maryland pastors and ministers. Trust you are doing well and had good church yesterday. I have been making progress, for which I praise God. I had my first immune therapy treatment specifically for the melanoma stage four cancer on Friday. Everything went very well, but Friday night I had some reaction, which is part of the situation, and my legs were so weak I was unable to stand. The doctor suggested coming to ER to get checked out for sure, and everything did check it out. They have kept me here Saturday and Sunday, and I have regained about 75% of my strength back in the legs. Thank you so much for your continued prayer and thoughts. I do rejoice at the reports that I get of those being filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized. I believe God is continuing to do good things across West Virginia and western Maryland. We will continue to pray and believe God for great things as our camps convene for Sunday school and youth, and churches are having their vacation Bible schools. We pray blessings upon you and your family and churches. God bless! It's good to speak to you today. May you have a blessed week."
