Words from our Interim Pastor

Friends,

Geri and I are so very grateful for the warm welcome you have given us, and for all the hard work you did to make the parsonage a wonderful place to live. Thank you! 

You have a wonderful giving spirit. That same spirit can be used to give one of the most treasured gifts there is. That is the gift of inviting people to your church. The arrival of a new interim minister gives one new reason to invite.

On Sunday you'll find a form in your bulletin to have your own customized business card sized invitation to help make that invitation. You'll find it fun and useful. You can add your address, phone number, or e-mail address to the card. You can also have your favorite Bible verse printed on the back.

See you Sunday!

Pastor Johnson

PRAYER UPDATES FROM BANGKOK

Sometimes, veering from our usual routine can open up a new perspective. At the beginning of January, I turned in a different direction from my regular morning walk. I discovered flourishing streams and lush green islands had replaced the old Tobacco Monopoly In Isaiah 43:19, we read, "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland (NIV). God is at work doing new things despite the often discouraging news making headlines globally. If we trust God's leading, we will discover the places where life is flourishing, even in the wastelands.
 

PRAISES

NightLight shared a festive Christmas party with the theme of Winter Wonderland. It was a great way to end the year 2021.

 

PRAYER REQUESTS

Pray for the Central Asian women's cases to progress and get to court without a long delay.
