A big “Thank-you” goes out to Mike and Naida Poirier for their time with us at Lakeshore Baptist Church. As most of you know, the Poiriers made several mission trips to the Mississippi Gulf Coast with their home church, Pioneer Valley Baptist Chapel of Chicopee, MA. In 2012, the Lord led them to sell their home, move to the gulf coast, and join Lakeshore Baptist Church. In God’s providence, they hit the ground right before we broke ground on the new church building. With his construction experience, Mike was instrumental in the entire project – from the bottom of the piling holes, to the tip of the steeple, and everything in-between. We can not thank him enough. He also served as the Volunteer Chaplain at the Hancock County Jail. Likewise, the Lord had a place for Naida to serve alongside Mrs. Bea at the Mercy House during their three years with us. 2016 brings another move for the Poiriers as they relocate to Jackson Mississippi and join Grace Baptist Church to assist in their new church building project. We pray the Lord will continue to use the Poiriers for His glory in Jackson.
