Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders. Had some good moments in Collinsville as well. Ask Casey Mattox at if he will be honest about it. I try my best to make it to Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC at least four times a year.

Daniel Carro, Collinsville,and The Baptist World Alliance

Carro is with the Leland Center of Washington, DC. The President of this Progressive Baptist Concern is the former pastor of one of my Relatives.
Carro is also networked to folks in the wider world of Collinsville Baptist Pastor John Morgan's sons Matthew with the UMC in NYC, and John Elliot's Habitat for Humanity in Americus Georgia.
FBC FT Payne pastor Pat McFAdden attended the BWA gathering in London about five years ago and was on the cover of Baptists Today; a publication several influential folks in Collinsville Baptist have had contact with as recently as June 2006.
It seems that some Baptist deacons in NE Alabama have strayed off the reservation of Hospitality motifs and Sensible Immigration Reform Maxine Waters and the SBC's ERLC Richard Land Were discussing last week on a House Panel in DC.
With the coordination of UMC Bishop Willimon and folks in FBC Ft. Payne who have connections to Carro's circles it is very possible to have Carro come to the area and lead some right minded discussions on immigration Reform.
Would be grand to have this Baptist STatesman at the Center of International Baptist Work come to Collinsville. I have to Believe John Jeffers,CBC Founding Pastor Appleton, Wilmer Fields who now has connections to Collinsville would be proud.
