Dear Church Family,

One of the things I know the Lord has been speaking
to me about as I've journeyed with you through the
New Testament this year is my own commitment to
be more charitable and generous in every part of my

Recently I was reading some thoughts from C.S. Lewis
and felt that his words were very helpful for me. I
share them with you in hopes of stirring more of us
to be more charitable with those God brings into our

"Community Bible Study"
Leaders: Don & Alice Anderson

The Apostle Paul admonished Timothy, his son in the faith, to “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).” The image here is of a workman who is good at his vocation and has labored diligently to prepare himself for the job. The same applies for all Christians. We also need to be properly prepared so that we can be skilled at handling God’s precious Word for His glory. And that is exactly what we are doing in the Community Bible Study: studying God’s Word so that we can know and understand it better. We would like to invite you to join us in this quest.

Missionaries in Brazil
The last few months have been rich with blessings, changes and adjustments. Thank you for your
continued prayers as we chug along the journey of life.
Soon after our last newsletter, final goodbyes
were said in Brazil and our family returned to Calgary, Canada. It was difficult to bid farewell to our
great friends, but we were deeply encouraged by many who were so helpful. We could not help but
be deeply touched when neighbors organized a farewell get together...
