Mini-Update from the Land of Debris and Recovery

First and foremost I want to proclaim along with the psalmist the goodness and majesty of the Lord as ...

"His name shall endure forever; His name shall continue as long as the sun. And men shall be blessed in Him; All nations shall call Him blessed. 18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! 19 And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen." - Psalm 72:17-19

We have been on sensory overload for the past few weeks battling everything from rumor mongering and fatigue to dehydration and mosquitoes. I've not seen a TV for about a week now and have only heard the radio sporadically. We've been taking care of critical cleaning/tree damage work and we are about done with that first stage. Tomorrow I will tour the city and speak with civil and church leaders in the area to see how things stand community wise. From there Charles and I will put together a next step congregational and community short term plan.

For all of you who want to help and who have either called, phoned, or e-mailed us; thank you for your patience and prayers. We promise to get back to each and every one of you. Our guiding mindset is to first be good stewards of what the Lord is providing to us through you and secondly to have a precise plan that efficiently and effectively uses those resources.

More tomorrow on specific needs and other important things.

May the love of Christ shine brightly during this time of trial and unprecedented ministry/gospel expansion.

  • Eddie,
    We are not a FIRE church, although we follow happenings through emails, etc. I understand from an email sent out by Bruce that there is a family re-locating to Toronto from your church. We are in the Northwest part of Toronto and would be glad to help in any way we can. Please have them call if we can help! Church web page www.gfcto.com. Phone - 1.647.225.9077

  • Eddie,
    My name is Patty Taylor and I am the Director for Leadership Development at Simpson University in Redding, California. I oversee the missions program here sending students out all over the world. This Spring Break we will be taking 40 faculty, staff and students to the New Orleans area working with Pastor Frank Smith with the Christian & Missionary Alliance. We have more than 40 that have applied for our team and so I was wondering if you could use a group of students Feb. 18-25th? I received your name from Rosemarie Moscarelli who is a dear friend of mine. You can email me at ptaylor@simpsonuniversity.edu
