Weekly News 727/11

Good Wednesday morning to all of SBA country!!  God is good!

Good news from some of our churches:  Grace, New Horizon, Prospect all have reported that their children/youth and worship have increased.

Important information regarding the camp registration: The address is incorrect on the registration form for sending to the Association. 1252 Redwood Ave. #97, Grants Pass  OR  97527 is the correct one.   Since we've had this address for a couple of years, I don't know what will happen with your registration that has already been sent.  Hopefully I have caught some of you!!
August 1, 2011 is the latest postmark date for sending the forms.

Church/SBA historical info please!
Is there anyone in your church who could help me with your churches history?
If they want to write it or just give me the facts and I'll write it.
        Some things to include would be:
        Date of constitution
        First members
        Pastor and wife and years served
        Moving or new buildings
        Interesting and significant events
        Missions from your church and their pastors, when and if they constituted.

We are running out of the folks who were there.  The history we have is a summary that ends in 1981 so some of the churches we have now are missing.
Hopefully those of you who have celebrated anniversary milestones have this already, if so please send me a copy.
I would appreciate phone numbers of anyone who could be of assistance from your church or if you would have them call me.  541-659-7261

If you are an Executive Board representative please ask your pastor for a copy of the SBA Financial Report.  This is through June 2011.  E-mail me at office@siskiyoubaptist.org if you would like me to send it directly to you.


A copy of the resource called: "Becoming a Contagious Christian"  is available here at the SBA office for you to check it out.  The NWBC has it at a really good price.  If you have not received the announcement let me know and I will get it to you.  Your church can purchase it as well.  $25  + shipping for the kit (Video, book and 1 participants guide). The book and Participants guide are inexpensive as well.

Piano and/or Organ
Pastor Richard Williams called and said that there is an upright piano and organ available to any church that could use one.  They are both in White City. 
If you are interested please contact Richard:  541.779.9256.  The piano has a clear back so one can see the workings of the piano as it is played!

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 (USA), Southern Oregon, your church.  Pray for your purity of heart, that you will be a bold  and courageous witness that God can use.

Are you praying for the
pastors of the Siskiyou Baptist Association and region 4 Team?  Here are two of them and their wives:  Stan and Rhonda Smith, Dayspring Baptist, Grants Pass; Kevin and Linda Darr, Lampman Road, Gold Hill - UTurn4Christ


Pray this week for our pastors, missionaries, lay people to boldly live their lives in such a way that they would model a life of dependence on God. (from NAMB 30 ways to pray for missionaries) Prov 3:5-6

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

This morning (7/26) early as Dr. Crews was checking in at the hospital for his surgery, he fainted and fell, sustaining a crack to his skull.  This, of course, has put the surgery on hold.  He will be soon transported to Kaiser Hospital/Sunnyside where he will be kept in ICU and observed for a couple of days as they try to determine why this has happened. 
Cecil Sims was at the hospital and indicates that Dr. Crews knew him and knew that Cecil was heading for Texas this morning.  Norm Langston was also at the hospital and reports that a chaplain had also come by and had reported that Jo Ann was relatively calm and doing okay.  The Crews’ longtime friends Jim and Jean Phillips are there with Jo Ann and will accompany her to the Sunnyside Hospital. 
Please pray for Dr. Crews and Jo Ann during this crisis period.  More information will be shared as it is known.   

 Colleagues:
The calendar has continued to move right along and the date for my “Robotic Prostatectomy” has arrived.  I will enter St. Vincent Hospital in Portland at 5:30 am tomorrow, July 26, and will have the surgery beginning at 7:30 am.  The surgeon indicated the surgery will take approximately two hours and I should stay in the hospital no more than two nights.  I voted for just one.  The recovery time will be approximately two weeks (at least I am told I cannot drive a car for two weeks.)  However, telephones and Blackberrys work well at home and I will stay in touch with matters that are important.  Otherwise, I am planning to catch up on some good reading and enjoying the summer weather that is trying to arrive in the Northwest.
We will appreciate your continued prayers, especially for Jo Ann as she tries to keep me in line and healthy.  I will try to send an update as soon as I am home from the hospital and that will probably be it.  I don’t assume that friends need all the details, just the results.  Thanks for your friendship and prayers.


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

Be in prayer for
Sara Wisdom, Retired Women's Strategist/WMU Director of the NWBC.  She has cancer and covets your prayers.
