His Name is Bob Kimball

True story… a few weeks ago, on a Wednesday night in the FBC Raleigh fellowship hall, a Centerpoint bulletin was left on a table with this handwritten note at the top of the page... "His name is Bob Kimball".  No doubt, Bob had been at the piano leading the singing of hymns to start off the evening and a newcomer to the church asked someone else who he was.  Bob has a way of making impressions on people, ... and making things happen.
Bob was the first member from FBC Raleigh to come to Honduras.  When Hurricane Mitch hit the country in October 1998, NC Baptist Men arranged disaster relief teams and Bob joined a team from another church in 1999 to help out where he could.  He continued to travel once a week for a few years, then recruited Jeremy Petty to join him.  After their incredible year in Cedano, Honduras in 2004, they recruited a team from FBC Raleigh and the first full team traveled in January 2005.  
This is the 10th anniversary of those trips and every year the ministry grows larger and stronger.  Bob couldn't be here on this trip because he had to take care of responsibilities back home, but he was here in spirit, and in song, in prayer and in play.
God bless you my brother!!
