We greet you in Christ’s Name. Sermon outlines and AUDIO links for the latest lessons are on our website. We invite you to our Face Book Page. Pastor completed a study of the Apostolic Sign Gifts. He began a new series in the afternoon services on “An Arm Chair Tour of Israel.” More audio sermons are available on Sermon.net/tacwash. Brother Jim Turner finished EG Cook’s Book “Let’s Study Revelation” in our Sunday School Bible Study. Visitors come and go. Pray for Penny, Judy, Forrest, Grace, & Donald. Pastor attended the April Bible Conference in Michigan at the Home Baptist Church, Pastor Dan Gordon and preached on “A Good Soldier of Jesus Christ.”
First Friday of the Month Fellowship is always good. We are now saving a link to the FFF audio on the front page of our Church website. In April, Elder Paul Sandelin preached on “The Lord Opens Eyes.” In May, Elder Jim Tweet preached on “An Evil Heart of Unbelief.” In June, Elder Jim Turner preached on “Three Gospel Pillars in Isa.53:6.”
Our Tract a Day Club recorded 225 tracts handed out this quarter by Pastor. No record of any others involved in this effort. Jacob graduated from High School and has plans to attend WWU in Bellingham this fall. Abby is finishing her College courses there and is staying in Bellingham for work. Laura continues to study at UW at Tacoma. Blaine is doing well at Liberty U. in Virginia. He has some great opportunities as an intern this summer in Washington D.C and later in Texas working with David Barton and the Watchmen on the Wall.
Brother Skip’s heart specialist said that his heart is only working at about 40% and nothing can be done to improve it. Sister Marion is doing better with her hip replacement. Brother Turner’s annual cancer check up was cancer free. His high red cell blood count still needs regular checks. Sister Maxine is faithful in services but struggling with medicine costs. Pastor missed one Lord’s Day service due to a high fever but is better now. The rest of us are pressing on by grace.
Be praying for Missions. Elder Robert Ellis is working under the authority of this congregation in Ireland. He is doing a good work. We are planning an organization meeting, Lord willing, in early October and Pastor is saving up for that trip. We are also helping with the mission work in Seattle to the Latino community in South Park where Ted Tweet is laboring and with the work in Mabini, Mindanao where Elder Dan Baldemor is laboring, and with the work in Romania where Elder Raul Enyedi labors. Although we are limited in what we can give financially, we pray earnestly and with out ceasing for brethren laboring on the mission fields of Oklahoma, Kentucky, West Virginia, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Australia, India and Thailand. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for repentance in the USA. AMEN.
