Our church missions board held its quarterly meeting this past Monday, and worked to continue the support and advance of missions in our church. Here are some of the highlights of our meeting:

Raised our monthly committed support to Rich and Anna Marshall from $250 to $400. We are taking this action because another supporting church is reducing their commitment to the Marshalls. We are able to do this (as well as raise the support we are giving to our own JD) since we have two commitments ending in June: Dave & Denise McCarthy have left Africa to serve in a church in California, and Todd Marshall has taken a position in an university here in the US.

Decided to send $500 to Mali to help Pastor Samuel of the Baptist Church in Gao rebuild his parsonage, which was destroyed by Islamic terrorists.

Missionaries who will be with us in the near future: Jeff & Ann Urich; RJ Briones; Mark & Janet Case; David Ibrahim; Stas & Liliya Karpenko (VBS misisonaries).

Plans for our October 2016 Missions Month are underway! So far we have scheduled Jason McGuire (NYCF), Orlando Briones (Philippines) and Gary and Carole Allen (Istanbul, Turkey). We also have invited Pastor Marvin Edrosolam and his wife Rosemarie (Philippines), who is applying to the US for a visa permiting him to come.

Thank you all for your prayer and financial support for the cause of Christian missions!

Check out the new "car port" at the rear of the Carriage House for parking our pickup. With the plow and sander on, the truck is too long for either of the garage bays, so this will be good for keeping it out of the elements. And we are guessing that we may get a bit more snow next winter. :)

Many thanks to our deaconesses for all of their great work in planning our marriage conference. It was a great day of challenge and change for those who took part, and we pray for continuing fruit in our lives as we put into practice all that we learned from the Bible-centered teching of Pastor Jim Saunders.
