Northwest Louisiana Baptist Association
SHREVEPORT – A reception is planned for 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 16, at Summer Grove Baptist Church for retiring Director of Missions Eddie DeHondt.

“The Northwest Association has grown in number of churches, missions and various ministries are being added,” Spinney added. “His encouragement, leadership, wisdom, insight and much more has been felt by the congregations of this Association.”
A memory book is being prepared for DOM DeHondt, with letters of appreciation to be included. If you would like to have a letter from you or your church included, please send it to Pattie Yeatts, 901 Mitchell Ln., Shreveport LA 71106.
