HURRICANE RELIEF

Requests to us are made for gift cards from Lowes’, Home Depot and Walmart where articles for re-building can be purchased. Food is available and generators are working. The elderly are especially affected, materially and emotionally. People and other help has gone there from all of our brotherhood. There will be more information forthcoming.

WELCOME TO OUR GUEST SPEAKER!

We will have our Monthly Fellowship Meal afterwards. Hosting will be done by the Millers, Linda Robertson, Christina Pipes and Maria Ramirez. Evening worship is dismissed.

A REMINDER!

The “Auction Benefiting the Cherokee Kids” will be on September 30th, at the Cherokee Home for Children. There is a flyer on the bulletin board with requests for LARGE items. See if you can help!

SPECIAL MESSAGE TO THE CONGREGATION

“After 30 years as an elder here and in Lubbock and because of declining health, it is time for me to resign from the eldership. We will continue to work and worship with this congregation as long as our health permits. My prayer is for the growth and steadfastness of the congregation. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the Lord’s congregation here.” In Christian love, Larry Moore

4 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19 ESV

Remember to pray always for fellow Christians and those going through hard times around the world. For the elders, Ken D

Harvey, Irma, and the Gospel

Above is a picture of a prayer garden on the campus of Southern Africa Bible College. The Christians in South Africa are praying for those who have been affected by Harvey, for those who are going to be affected by Irma, and for those impacted by the earthquake and hurricane in Mexico. They have called and emailed to check on us. Their concern and prayers mean much to me and, hopefully, knowing that God’s people who live half way around the world, are praying for you, is a comfort to you as well. God’s family is big! It doesn’t know any borders, and there’s no disaster or hardship that isn’t felt by others. Our South African brothers and sisters also have the Bible College Lectureships beginning the first of October. It’s a time for 500 or more Christians to sing, pray, study, and encourage each other. They will strengthen their relationship with God, renew their commitment to sharing the Gospel across Southern Africa. This is only the second one we, Christie and I, have missed in the last 7 years. But opportunities to speak at mission Sundays here in the States will keep us from attending. They are on our mind and in our prayers. Please pray for those who are hurting in the US, but also pray for the lost of Southern Africa and that the Gospel continues to spread there.

God bless, Kirk Eason, US Director of Development, South African Bible College
