FOOD PANTRY NEEDS
The Food Pantry is in need of plastic bags. It is very important that those plastic bags are functional for their use. Please, do not bring plastic bags that have been used for produce! There is usually moisture left that is unhealthy. Also, check those plastic bags for holes! They are not usable. Also, the Pantry cannot use paper bags. Try to recycle them in a different way.
As always, thank you for your attention and co-operation!
Report from SIBI on the Solar Player Project
One of the biggest stories of 2015 is the success of Sunset International Bible Institute’s Solar Player Phase II. As this is written, we have almost reached our $1million funding goal and are 75% completed in distributing 2,000 more solar players. Perhaps most significant is our first “foreign language” version of the solar player as 500 are being prepared for Ethiopia in the Amharic language.
As Phase II finishes, Sunset is already laying the groundwork for Phase III. Phase III of the Solar Event will be in Spanish. The process has already begun by collecting all of the material that Sunset has done over the past few decades in Spanish. Many years ago, Miguel Arroyo voiced the translation of the courses from English to Spanish. Other classes have been recorded by our partner school, Texas International Bible Institute, led by Steve Austin and Kevin Montgomery. All of that material is being compiled and edited to be in the right format for the audio menus on the solar players. In the coming months Arthur Puente, the International Dean of Latin America, will be determining the most effective places to distribute the solar players in Central and South America. We will be asking for brotherhood involvement and partnership in that exciting venture.
The funds from Phase I and Phase II continue to be a resource to help get the arduous task of translation accomplished. Languages for continuing phases are being investigated and follow-up progress with the seven countries that have already received solar players continues. The vision of the Solar Events is to help the “Sonlight” spread to the most remote places on earth. It uses the power of the sun to teach about the Son. It has begun in the dark continent of Africa, but as the sunlight drives away the darkness across the globe, the vision is for the Light of God’s Word to spread around the world.
Keep this exciting work in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D
