VISITING FOR THE MASTER — 2016
Our visitation program has served us and the Lord well since its inception in 2007, and we desire to continue this ministry in 2016. A reorganization meeting is planned for Sunday, January 24, following the evening worship service. Pizza will be served in the Fellowship Hall prior to an evaluative discussion of the program and suggestions for the New Year. If you would like to be involved in this ministry, a sign-up sheet is posted at the rear of the auditorium.
THANK YOU NOTE
Thanks to all for the gift certificate, the cute reindeer and the cash! Everything is greatly appreciated! My love to all! ~~ Vicky

Read the following exciting thoughts from Brother George Funk whom we have long supported in Africa thru the Gospel Chariot Missions. Continue to keep all efforts to spread our Lord’s kingdom everywhere in your thoughts and prayers. For the elders, Ken D
2016 – New Ministry – Brethren, I have been praying for 2 years about starting another GCM ministry, but this time in Australia due to me living there and commuting to Africa. I have toiled and waited on God and I believe the time has arrived for something that is close to my heart, and that is trying to reach unchurched people through caring and sharing and helping them worship God in their homes, but even more getting them to turn around and help their communities. We have to find ways of making the world a better place and being creative as we lead people to Jesus.
Australians are not very receptive, but many, many believe and pray to God, but they are tired of the religious confusion and land is way too expensive for church buildings. I believe God is showing me something that is driving me insane and I feel so compelled and so I have made the commitment on top of all our African work to start another work, but this time in Australia and we are calling it Gospel Care Missions. It’s exciting and God will reveal more as we slowly but surely put structures in place. PLEASE PRAY that from nothing something bigger than ourselves can happen for the most CARING person who ever lived and that is JESUS CHRIST.
Brethren, we don’t have the funds and cannot take from our African budget. This is just a dream that has now just become a goal that I will promote over the coming years and it’s not what I can do, but how many others I can encourage to buy into this vision. My goal is to get a gospel chariot camper and get retired brethren from the US to help follow up on possible house church plantings after advertising in the different towns. We can all do a month in the camper reaching and teaching Australians that you can be just a Christian.
PLEASE PRAY FOR US AND GIVE US YOUR BLESSING IN THIS REGARD. We have to be creative in Australia. As I said I don’t have to do this. I have a job, but I feel compelled and will only have peace if I TRY. Thank You All….Thank You Lord.
