Our Guest Speaker in Bible Class
This morning, March 12th, the combined adult Bible classes will meet in the auditorium. John Clinton, from SIBI, will give us a presentation on the development in phase 3 of the Solar Player project. We are looking forward to hearing about the progress of this exciting tool for evangelism!
- The Fellowship Meal that would normally take place on Sunday, March 26th, has been moved to Sunday, April 2nd. This change was made so that we can spend our fellowship time with the Emperado family who will be reporting to us on their work in the Philippines. Therefore we WILL have Sunday PM services on March 26th, but we will NOT have Sunday PM services on April 2nd. Please make note of these changes and plan to help us welcome the Emperados!
- The Cherokee Home for Children will have its food drive on May 6th, 2017. We will again be sending money for this effort rather than trying to collect and deliver food items. If any members would like to contribute to this effort, please give your gift to one of the elders and it will be included in the check sent to Cherokee.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.
Romans 1:16 (ESV)
In God we can be involved in such wonderful works, like the taking of the gospel to the entire continent of Africa by our African brethren. We are so thankful to be pa rt of the Gospel Chariot Missions effort. Please keep this effort and all the precious souls involved in your thoughts and prayers. For the elders, Ken D
GOSPEL CHARIOT MISSIONS UPDATE January and February 2017
Hope you are all doing well. Things are really busy during January and February because it’s the time chariots start heading out after repairs and believe me, there are always some surprises and they all cost money! We as leaders can never overlook repairs because they will come back to bite you in all the wrong places and will cost you more to repair in the bush than back home. So we take our repairs very seriously.
We have had some sad and unexpected passing s. Firstly, Dimpo Motimele’s father passed away and just last week our own GCM granny, Lydia, who collected all our WBS mail and did grading and was responsible for sending packages to the US and Vicki in Australia.
On a brighter note, we are all doing well. Mike Knappier and Dimpo Motimele are up in Namibia where we have our mission point now with a short term school in process. We have just ordered another container of Bibles from China for East Africa and the Nigerian Chariot will be ready for export in a month’s time. Meaning we will have 13 chariots going into 19 countries and we have brethren pleading with us from all over Africa to help with chariots in their areas as well as they see what is happening on the continent. As they say “success breeds success” and it’s starting to snowball and it’s not us, it’s the Lord and the African brethren taking responsibility of evangelizing their own continent. I personally have always seen that and it’s now taking fire and we need to thank all you American supporters for backing this vision. Thank you, thank you to all.
To God be the Glory.
