BEAUTIFUL FOOTNOTES

“Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, who testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God….. Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.” 3 John 5-8 (ESV)

We are blessed as a congregation willingly supporting the gospel in different ways. We want to update you on some of the efforts to support the Gospel we have recently undertaken. There are additional efforts to be mentioned later. We pray you will continue to support all these efforts, first prayerfully and thoughtfully, and then, as possible, financially. For the elders, Ken D

 We have undertaken to support the two instructors in Bible that Richard Emperado will use to train preachers in the Philippines to strengthen and establish congregations. At some point in the next few years we will fund a campaign to establish a congregation in one of the remaining provincial capital cities.

 We continue to support the Cherokee Home for Children monthly as well as making a contribution to help them obtain food and special needs for their kids.

 We partially support Amanda Chumalo to attend South Africa Bible College as she trains as a Christian to teach and counsel other women in South Africa. Kirk Eason from SABC spoke to us last week.

 A number of our young people were sent to “Heart of Texas Bible Camp” in Brady this summer with their financial fees handled by the congregation.

 We financially supported requests from Sylvester Imogoh in Nigeria to print 100,000 World Bible School tracts; to help with additional WBS mailing expenses; and to help his family with college expenses for his son, Alfred.

 We made a contribution to Sunset’s Solar Player to spreading the Gospel to Spanish speaking people by paying for four of the players. John Clinton from SIBI spoke to us earlier this year.

 We contributed needed funds for the African Christian Schools in Nigeria to meet some building needs as they help educate young people and gospel preachers.

 We are helping four Nigerian preachers, including Mike Udam, whom we regularly support, to go to the West African nation of Mali to spread the gospel in early September. Mali has less than ten total congregations.

 We are continuing our support of training gospel preachers by partially supporting Cooper and Meagan Atkeson on a monthly basis to attend Sunset International Bible Institute beginning in August for the next two years.

 We have invited Andy Baker from World Christian Broadcasting to speak to us in August about their efforts to use radio to spread the gospel around the world. We have supported this work in the past.
