VISITING FOR THE MASTER IN 2020
It is time to reorganize our visitation program for the New Year. Members were invited to add their names to the sign-up sheet on the table at the rear of the auditorium.
This program has served our congregation well since 2007. The reorganization meeting will be held this evening after our worship hour. If you still have questions, see Cary Miller for additional information.

WORLD BIBLE SCHOOL WORKDAY
On Thursday, February 13th, we will have the next World Bible School workday. From about 9 AM to noon. Come and enjoy the fellowship and this good work!

REMEMBER OUR SPANISH WORK
Salvador SanTillan is ready every Sunday morning to teach a Bible class in Spanish. This is a worthy endeavor. Do you have friends who would benefit from this Spanish Bible study? Let them know about it by giving them a warm, personal invitation. Those who already come, make them feel welcome and at home in our fellowship.

PRAYER REQUESTS
Please let the secretary (Helga) know, either by a written note or an e-mail message , if you would like to have your prayer requests published in the PRAYER REQUEST list in the bulletin. Also remember to cut out that list ever so often for your own special prayer time.

A PRAYER FOR OUR NATION
Dear God, You have commanded us in Romans 13:1, Titus 3:1 and 1 Pet. 2:13, and other places, to submit to the governing authorities. And we want to do this, it is Your will. But as we look around us, we see that those authorities do so many things that are not subject to Your will and laws. We see them rebel against You and so we feel uneasy.
But You have also commanded us to pray, in 1 Timothy 2:2, for those in authority that we may live peaceful and quite lives in all godliness and holiness. So this we will do, because You have assured us in James 5:16 that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. Therefore we pray that there will be an awakening in those who are our authorities toward Your laws, Your will, which is the best for mankind.
As You have blessed us with a form of government that gives us the right to vote for what is right in Your eyes and according to Your will, we will do our best to be informed and prayerfully consider and decide to do what is right in our civic duty. May God bless our efforts in all we do!
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Gospel Chariot Fourth Quarter Update 2019

Gospel Chariot Fourth Quarter Update 2019. Please keep in your prayers all our brethren throughout Africa who are sharing the Gospel and helping the lost find their Savior thru the efforts of the Gospel Chariot. For the elders, Ken D

Hi Everyone. Hope this finds you doing well. This is the West African Fourth Quarter update and it’s a little late due to me being on the road in Africa. West Africa is on fire for The Lord and the new big gospel chariot is up and running in Liberia and over a hundred souls have been baptized into Christ. We still need to get a baptistery built in like the other chariots and will try do that as soon as possible. The exciting news is we are now starting to raise funds for a new big gospel chariot that will be based out of French speaking Benin that will focus on all the French speaking countries around Ghana. We now have more chariots in West Africa than any other region due to us wanting to be intentional in reaching Muslim populated countries. Please pray for this bold move as Africans take Africa for Jesus.

That said, we have flown a number of Key African leaders down to South Africa for a 4 day intensive 4 fields discipleship seminar where we will learn how to start cells churches in Muslim populated countries where we can’t go in with gospel chariots. We will also do that training in Uganda. Please pray for these efforts as God guides us. To Him be the Glory.

Biodun Owolabi reported the following from Nigeria on the 23rd of October: The Nigeria Gospel Chariot traversed the length and breath of South Eastern Nigeria from 1st August till the first week of October, 2019.
Between August 1st and 31st, the chariot visited 33 communities and four zones in Enugu State: Enugu, Nsukka, Eha- Amufu and Agwu. Nine souls were converted and thousands enrolled for the WBS correspondence course.

The chariot then moved on to Abia and Imo states from September 1 to October 3, 2019. The chariot worked for a couple of days at Mbala Isuochi in Abia state before moving to Imo State. The chariot visited 15 communities in Imo State where hundreds of people were enthusiastic about hearing the truth of God’s word. Five souls were converted and several prospects enrolled for WBS course.

Continue to pray for the chariot and the crew as they continue to take the saving gospel of Christ across Nigeria amidst challenges of difficult terrain, bad roads and other challenges that are peculiarly Nigerian.
To God be the Glory. In Him. Love, Brother George Funk
