NEW MASK POLICY

The elders have decided that there has been enough improvement in the COVID situation to justify an adjustment to our mask policy. A large percentage of our membership is now vaccinated, and we have seen no cases of COVID-19 being spread in our church assemblies. Therefore, we believe the following adjustment(s) are warranted:

 Masks will still be required to enter and exit our building or while moving about.

 Once you are seated and socially distanced from others, the mask will be optional during worship. You are not required to remove your mask to sing, etc. but you can if you want to.

 Should you need to get up and move around the building, we ask you to please put your mask back on. Once seated again & distanced you can remove the mask again.

 At the end of services everyone is asked to put the mask back on as we exit the building.

Our hope is that these adjustments will maintain a reasonable level of safety and yet allow us to worship our Lord without the discomfort associated with wearing a mask. Thank you for your cooperation.

KENYAN EVANGELISM MISSION REPORT PART 2

As the current pandemic situation improves, we will see many people travel to different destinations, to some of the sites of God’s creation. However, the greatest of God’s creation, that should be our greatest concern, are the souls of people that we can go to teach, to encourage and to help them to become God’s new creation in Christ Jesus.

Our congregation has helped people in many places hear God’s gospel. For decades, our support has gone to help seek the lost in one of the most populous nations of the world, India. A nation, currently the 2nd most populated one, with 1.4 billion people needing the salvation of our God. We monthly help support a local Indian preacher, PJ Krupalini, through the India Evangelism ministry overseen by the elders of the West Freeway church of Christ in Fort Worth, TX.

Due to the conditions in India, it is rare that we get to hear directly from there, but we know some good and needed work is being done there to people needing God’s love. People are being taught and baptized, congregations are being established, church buildings are being constructed, benevolent works are being carried out, preachers are being trained, Bible materials are being produced and distributed and the true God is being proclaimed.

Recently we heard that Royce Frederick, who has directed the India Evangelism work and has frequently made trips to India, has passed into the next life. He had spent his whole life centered on doing God’s will and spent much of it in foreign mission work. We know that this will cause some new challenges and possible changes in this work. It is our plan to continue supporting this good work. We want to keep these efforts in our prayers during this transition and ask that you do so that God will be glorified. For the elders, Ken D.
