Weekly News 11/3/10

Happy Wednesday everyone,
Well, "all but the shouting" is over in regards to the election.  We have our beautiful Fall weather, God is Good, All the time.  How blessed we are.

I have a little personal thought (soap box) that came up earlier this week.  Some of you send me, to either here at the office or to my personal home, E-mails that are either only partly true or not true at all.  I have personally decided to not take part in these this as far as sending them on.  This is why:  We Christians get enough bad press.  Most of this type of info sent around is not 100% truthful.  If we want folks to believe what we say about our Jesus we shouldn't send out such items.  In our desire to "protect" we also damage.  Snopes is not all that reliable so if you are going to send items on research it more, go to the source.  Be a responsible E-mailer, Face Booker, etc.  OK Got it off my chest.  On with the news of the week.

Bruce Slone sent some info regarding a Hispanic meeting on Nov 20, 2010.  The full info will be at the end of this News letter.

Information regarding a Hispanic conference, Nov 20, 2010:
From: Carlos Andres Rodriguez Murr [mailto:carlosandresmurr@yahoo.com]
Hi dear brothers and co-workers in Christ,
        Some of our pastors and leaders are interested in reaching Hispanics for Christ. I have ordered 50 books of Reaching Hispanics from NAMB, I have asked Lola a favor, to give them to the SLT members so that everyone in our teams can have one, and be aware of this resource available through NAMB for interested pastors.
        I also want to inform you that on November 20th we will have our NWBC Annual Event of Hispanic churches. The meeting will be held at First Baptist of Longview, Wa. We have already informed all the Hispanic churches of our convention and many will be attending. We expect anywhere between 200-350 people in attendance.
        The speaker will be Francisco Aular director of Action 52. It is a challenge to believers to make a habit of sharing the gospel at least one time for every week of the year.  A bag with 52 small seeds (number of weeks in a year) is given to those who take the challenge, every time the gospel is shared one seed is given away until the bag runs empty (many give away the seed and share the parable of the sower).
        Brother Francisco was instrumental in the Baptist churches of Venezuela and Colombia to grow from 80 to 800 in 20 years. He is a pastor in Montreal and aids the Baptist convention of Canada. Please help us pray for this event in the lives of our churches. I have attach the flyer in English.
        I leave you with the brief opening information about Hispanics in America that is part of an introduction of a NAMB report that I was a part of, and that deals with the issue of church planting centers.
Thank you,
God bless you,
Carlos Andres Rodriguez
