Weekly News 6/8/11

Good Morning Everyone,
I hope this finds you all in good health and spirits.  God's creation helps.  Still praying for those who are not having such good weather.  There is rain, snow melt, flooding, drought, fires, tornados, currently all happening in some parts of our great land.  Continue to pray for the Disaster Relief personnel of all kinds and all  denominations, state and federal, etc.  Southern Baptist Disaster Relief could use a boost I am sure.  Did you know you can give through your church to the Disaster Relief fund of the NWBC.  I am sure you can donate to a national DR fund as well but I'm not sure how that would work.  Maybe Bill Griffith can fill us in on that.  Every little bit helps in a time of disaster.  Prayer is the most important aspect of this, for the folks in crises it is much appreciated.

Would you be willing to help out a sister church in another area? 
First Baptist Church of Siletz is planning on holding VBS 7/25 through 7/29 from 9 AM until noon daily, with a program on Friday night the 29th. We'll be off to the Big Apple. As always, we are short on staffing. We need 4 teachers, someone for missions, and a pair of agile folks for recreation.  Thought we'd pass our needs along and see if you knew of anyone that might be of assistance.
Mary Parker, VBS Director  Phone Bruce Sloan as she did not have a phone # listed.   503-515-5340

Prayer Needs:  Let me know if your church has a prayer concern it will be posted here.
From Facebook and E-Mail:

Are you praying for revival or movement of the Spirit for our land, Southern Oregon, your church.  Pray for your purity of heart, that you will be a witness that God can use.

Are you praying for the
pastors of the Siskiyou Baptist Association?  Here are two of them and their wives:  Brian and Arlene Farrar, Trinity Baptist Church, White City; JC and Karen Barnett, Foothills Baptist Church, Medford

Please pray for some SBA Saints who are not doing well at this time.  They represent many years of service and concern for the Association.

William and Peggy Burns, 6th Street, Gold Beach. 
I haven't checked but William and Peggy should have arrived home this last weekend.

Be in prayer for Bill Crews, Executive Director of the NWBC.  He has cancer and covets your prayers.

Pray for
Bruce Sloan for a health problem.   He also covets your prayers
