Special Opportunity - The first week of October Bro. Mark will be traveling on mission with Dr. David Sills and Reaching & Teaching International Ministry. They will be going to train indigenous pastors in the central mountains of Ecuador, South America. These men have very little training and no education. Additionally, these pastors do not have libraries of commentaries and theological books to aid them in their study of God’s Word and preaching.
Here’s where you come in: You can purchase a 1-volume Spanish-language Bible commentary for these pastors for $13. Bro. Mark will hand deliver these commentaries to the pastors during the week that he is in Ecuador. There will be about 30 pastors at the week-long training session, so we need donations to purchase 30 commentaries. Due to fairness, the mission organization has said that we cannot give out commentaries to only part of the pastors. So, we need donations to cover the price of all 30 commentaries for this to work!!!
After-School Reading Program - We need caring adults/youth (men and women) who are willing to give one hour per week to help a third grade child become a better reader. You will be using a child’s story Bible and other children’s books, helping them one on one. We will meet on THURSDAY afternoons at 3pm following the school schedule in the activities building. Our first session will be September 20th. Please contact Carol Alberg 761-5285 if you would like to help.
