Weekly News 1/12/12

Good Oregon Sunshine to you all today.  A little dry on the Sun but a great day in any event.  Going to get the printer ordered today.  One thing that is cool about it is it will print 11X17 paper, it is in the price range, and I can print 7,000 copies a month, well sort of.  So if you need a larger something printed or a poster for an event we can do that.  I am also hoping it will print envelopes which this old one quit long ago doing that.  So God is Good, all the time.  I thank Him for His provision and His precious Word that sooths the soul and calms the spirit.  So onward!

New Challenge Seminar
By the end of this last week, invitations were mailed out for the New Challenge Seminar which will be held at the Northwest Baptist Center on February 9-10, 2012.

If you know of pastors and vocational church staff who are new to their ministry in the Northwest and should be invited, please contact Marsha Gray and provide names and ministry position information (and spouse name if known) of those who should be encouraged and invited to attend.  As the last New Challenge Seminar held was in October 2010, you might think back as far as fall of 2010 as you consider names.
