Weekly News 6/22/11

Happy Summer everyone!  I love the seasons, they prove God is in control!  He is good, all the time.

This week end the Lozier Mission group leaves out for Mexico!  Continue to pray for them, that they would be bold in their witness, and have journey mercies.

Attached is the children/youth info for camp.  Please be aware of the dead line!!  August 1st.

This Saturday is the 50th Anniversary for Prospect church.  12-4 at the church.  Be sure to bring a chair and a dish to share.  (suntan lotion!)

Foothills is having VBS this week, 1-4.

Ron Allen, River Bend - Shady Cove, wanted you all to know that he and his family are appreciative of the monetary help given to help get them to Texas.  For the kind condolences and prayer.

On a separate E-mail I will be sending a newsletter from Bill Griffith, Region 4 Disaster Relief Coordinator.

I was excited this AM to have a message that was from a parent who had gone to our web site and saw Foothills VBS announcement.  Got them connected with Foothills.  It is important to have that site!

The office will be closed on July 4th.  August 5 - 14  the office will be closed and I will not be in communication with the lower 48 very often.  Just because I'm nosey, I'll probably call someone just to bug them!!

If you missed checking in on the SBC Convention then check out SBCnet and download the preachers you want to hear!  It is supposed to be there according to FB.

Are you a worship leader in your church?  Would you be interested in getting together with the other worship leaders of the SBA to get to know each other, pray, see what happens from there?  E-mail  Ruth Martin,  ruca777@ccountry.net,  at Foothills and let her know that you are.

I would like to get our clerks and ladies or men who help with the office issues of their church.  Give me a call and we'll set a time and place.  Maybe lunch in Medford?  End of July?  This is for a time of encouraging before the new year begins.

If you have an event for the Weekly News please let me know.  I try my best not to forget to get your event in so if it is not there give me a shout!

Note from Gary Floyd - Disaster Relief NWBC Coordinator
We are just now beginning to receive disaster recovery project requests from Japan. The initial request has been filled. Northwest Baptist Disaster Relief is on the list for future requests and to also fill vacant spots on other requests. IMB is estimating that there will be 1 to 3 requests per month till the end  of the year. The projects will involve eleven days (travel and work) and I estimate that the cost per team member to be around $3,000.

Please pray for these teams to be filled.  If you are interested I will be happy to send the whole information bulletin to you.
