BWA General Council Resolution 1981.7

Recognizing the extreme importance of an effective beginning for the General Council and Study Commissions for the 1981-85 quinquennium, we express our deep appreciation:

  1. To the Baptists of Puerto Rico and especially to the Primera Iglesia Bautista de Carolina for their warm greetings and gracious hospitality.
  2. To the staff and officers of the Alliance for their labor and commitment which combined to make this meeting an outstanding success.
  3. To the members of the General Council and Study Commissions and to churches and their conventions/unions that have assumed the personal costs of travel and lodging and so have helped to ease the Alliance’s budgeting commitment.
