Medical Mission Summit,
Maranatha Baptist University,
Sept. 21-23, 2017,
Please register young people as soon as possible. Pastors and young adults this is an opportunity to see the future investment in the Gospel through medical missions. Even if you are not considering medical as a life calling, you can engage in medical missions. Come and hear about the opportunities.
This report just came in from Pastor Cover. We are very thankful for the work that Pastor Cover has done. Please read his report.
“The last couple of days have been full of work teams doing cleanup and supplies being distributed. We have sent men to help Pastor David Cripps to tear out and clean up at his home as well as the home of his next-door neighbor. This neighbor does not know Christ as his Savior and previous to this has not been receptive even to friendly conversation from Pastor Cripps. However, he needed help to clean up his home after the flood and so a group of men who came down from Harrisonville, MO with Pastor Randy Foster, and two men that came from Louisiana with Pastor Rob Fleshman helped him to get his home cleaned up over the past couple of days. What an open door for ministry!
Yesterday, as we passed out supplies from the back of a truck in the neighborhood we had the opportunity to pass out many tracts and pray with many people. We have met so many different people in our community through this effort. One of the ladies in our church met some of her neighbors out volunteering with another group. What a great opportunity for her to meet her neighbors and invite them to our church. We were giving supplies yesterday to a senior living center (55 and over community) and while we were there we were invited to begin leading a Bible study there each week as well.
One exciting thing for me as a pastor to see, is many of our new folks in the church jumping in and serving with our church in our community. Last night one of our men texted and asked where he could work today. He has been in the church for just about a month now. God is building His church and He is using these opportunities to serve others to solidify and build this local body. I am thankful for all of the help and support from ORH to provide the funds, supplies, and know-how to accomplish so much in so little time! Please keep praying for us. I just got off the phone a few minutes ago with a man named Ricky. We helped his family a few days ago. They are planning to join us for church tomorrow. Thank you for giving financially. We have given funds that ORH has provided to many families in need and helped some other churches financially as well! In Christ, Pastor Will Cover, Arise Baptist Church.”
