Mugunna James joined the church this morning! He has been attending several weeks now. James is from Kenya. This morning after we accepted him into membership He quoted John 3:16 in Swahili for us. What a blessing that God would give us people from all over the world.
We had 115 in Sunday School and 117 in church I believe. The offering for Jason Holt is coming along. I think that we took up over $800 this morning and now have nearly $1,000! I am asking God to let us give at least $2,000 to this special need.
Also I just talked to our friend in North Africa. Today was their first service as a church. Our friend preached in Arabic. God is really using Project North Africa. I am so very proud of them. Tomorrow they take off for a two day trip to deal with other contacts and try to disciple a couple and witness to others. I think that they plan to talk to 8 total with a scheduled appointment.
God is great and doing a great work in the lives of our friends there. Please continue to pray for them.
Pray for Philip Bassham that he will soon get well and get his voice back. I would really like to see God work a miracle and be able to have him sing and lead singing on Tuesday for the Pastor’s Fellowship. I am really looking forward to the fellowship meeting because some special friends are planning on coming like, Pastor Eric Byrd and Pastor Derik Lawrence. I hope you will make plans to help us really do this day up right!
I know that I have run on about a lot but there is so much going on and it is wonderful.
