FOOD PANTRY NEEDS
♥ The Pantry is in need of plastic bags.
♥ A special upcoming need: it’s not too long until school will start again! As we did last year, we want to help some of our Pantry clients with the purchase of school supplies again. If you are willing to help, we are already accepting donations. Please see Ken Darnell or David Zoller if you want to donate to this good cause.
NEXT SUNDAY IS SPECIAL!
Our Very Special Visitors Will Be With Us, Sylvester & Sandra Imogoh! Dough & Diane Wheeler will be with them, too. We are looking forward to Sylvester and/or Doug giving us reports about the work in Nigeria in the combined adult Bible class (auditorium) and hear, least, one of them preach. Now it is up to all of us to honor these untiring missionaries with our excellent attendance next Sunday, July 12th! It was especially difficult for Sandra to get her visa, it had been denied to her previously. She must be so very excited about this trip to the USA, to not only meet and visit us here in Kingsland, but to also visit with other supporting congregations. We pray that Sandra and Sylvester’s time here will be safe and a blessing to all. To have more time for fellowship with esp. the Imogohs, our July Fellowship Meal has been re-scheduled to next Sunday, July 12th, after our morning worship assembly. After that, we will have a short devotional and there will be no evening worship service.
You may have read in the bulletin or on the church’s Web page the following statistics: World Bible School Lessons Sent to Nigeria: January 2 2, 201 5 – 3,033; September 18, 2014 – 1,101; July 2 4, 2014 – 2,500+; April 24, 2014 – 1,639; April 3, 2014 – 850; January 20, 201 4 – 2,296; December 23, 2013 – 830; July 25, 2013 – 1,198; June 2, 2013 – 1,640
What does that mean? It means that in the last two years that our congregation has been involve d in the World Bible School program and that over 15,000 lessons have been processed by our congregation and returned to souls seeking their God. All of them live in the African nation of Nigeria. Who can tell how many of them will respond to the gospel of our Lord? How many others will be influenced to seek salvation from God because of them? How many ways will our God be glorified by these efforts? What a wonderful thing to be part of the task of helping others find eternal salvation! We do our part and others do theirs.
We know one of the important links between the lost in Nigeria and salvation from our Lord is the tireless and dedicated work done by local evangelists in Nigeria. Sylvester Imogoh, one of those beloved brothers, has long been a fellow laborer with us in the fields of Nigeria. It is so exciting to know that Sylvester and his wife Sandra will be here to visit with us next week, to report on the work and to give us an opportunity to fellowship with them in love. We are also pleased that Doug and Diane Wheeler will be here with Sylvester and Sandra. Doug has long been our vital link between us and the work in Nigeria as our special missionary to Nigeria. It has been a long wait for everything to come together for this visit to come about. We hope that all of the congregation will make a special effort to be here next week to enjoy the special opportunity to welcome and fellowship with the Imogohs and Wheelers. I’m so excited, I just can’t wait. For the elders, Ken D.
