Building and Maintaining Healthy Leader Relationships In The Church

Dear friends,
On March 18 I will be guiding a discussion at our local Mens'/Preachers' Meeting here in Columbia, SC. The topic I'm going to address is "Building and Maintaining Healthy Leader Relationships In The Church". I am asking for input from former and present elders, preachers, their wives and some others in the church. All input used will be anonymous. I value your participation in this study. I will be happy to send a copy of the final result to any that would like it in a Word attachment.

Support Update from the Goracke Family

Brethren,

It seems that every few days I receive word from brethren who have either joined with us as financial partners for the work in Singapore or are considering so. The Lord continues to bless us with one-time offerings. To date, He has secured us with 71% of our monthly needs and 100% of our one-time needs for our first budget year needs in Singapore. The monthly calculation continues to increase primarily from extra one-time contributions that are allotted towards our first year monthly needs.

Car wreck claims second life
ROBIN PYLE
AVALANCHE-JOURNAL
Sunday night’s fatal car wreck on North Loop 289 claimed a second life.
Ruby Hambrick, 65, of Lubbock died at University Medical Center, Lubbock police said.
Her passenger, 68-year-old Larry Monroe Hambrick of Lubbock, died shortly after being rushed to the hospital Sunday night.
A 21-year-old driver crashed a Chevrolet truck head-on into the Hambricks’ car shortly before 7 p.m. in the 3000 block of the North Loop.
“He may have fallen asleep, but we don’t know yet,” said Police Capt. James Shavers, adding the investigation is on-going.
Daniel Travis Ridley was headed west on the Loop when he lost control of the truck, crossing the median and slamming into the Hambricks’ car in the eastbound lane, according to the police report.
Two other cars, holding three people, also were involved in the wreck, but they did not suffer any injuries.
Ridley was taken to University Medical Center with moderate injuries.

February Report - Tobey and Kathy Huff

February 2008
Dear Brethren, Friends and family!

Greetings and grace from Fiji.

Bula Vinaka!

WEATHER DOWN-UNDER
We have continued to have heavy rains in Lautoka with over 22 inches of rain since our last report. This means that there is an overwhelming odor of rotting vegetation in the air and a layer of mildew and mold on anything that is just sitting around. This included and is not limited to all leather products such as shoes, wooden items, backpacks, hats, furniture. You name it the mildew and mold was on most everything because the humidity never got below 90%. However the last couple of weeks we have seen drier weather with thunderstorms in the afternoon only. We even had a few days without any rain with lower humidity but higher temperatures. When it was raining the temperatures even got down into the high 70's.

Wednesday Morning Report from Athens

Greetings this Wednesday morning from Athens Greece,

I sit in my office this morning listening to the quiet of the city. Yep, the Greeks have decided to call a general strike once again. That means that all public offices and public services are closed today. That includes the banks, Post office, all government offices, half of the television stations, newspapers and all public transportation. I noticed on the internet that the airport is even closed today. That makes for a very quiet day here in Athens. The only ones out will be the protesters in the center of the city, protesting whatever they feel like protesting today. I’ll just sit happily in my office here at home and get my work done quite nicely. Might even have to make that second pot of coffee. . . . Hum, that sounds good. . . . I’ll be right back.

We finished up our school term yesterday at the school for this month and the students seem to have done very well once again. We’ll see as I plow into the grading of their final exams and term papers this afternoon. I continue to admire and marvel at their undying love of the Lord and their eagerness to study and learn more the Word of God.

Thanksgiving from Chile

Please offer up a prayer of thanks giving.
  1. Roger and Keith, two of the ministers were just here from California. They were an encouragement to us and the work here. It was great to have people who are interested in the work come and experience it 1st hand.

El Salvador Report from Alexander & Silvia Castellanos

Dear brethren:

Wednesday Morning Report - a day late

Greetings in the Lord, this good Wednesday (OOP’S – I mean Thursday) morning.

A day late this week visiting with you as Jamie Wootton and I had a full day of visiting local sites here in Greece. Jamie has been with us three weeks so far and has now realized he only has one more week before he heads back to the good ol’ U.S.A. So much to see, and so little time to see it all. We spent a full day yesterday taking the opportunity to get out on a boat and visit three local islands nearby, just to give Jamie the experience of seeing a little of the Greek culture outside of Athens.

We are three weeks done in this school term and only have one more week before we get on with final exams. The students made it through their mid-terms ok, and are now getting ready to head into finals. As always it’s been such a joy to be with them in class. Their enthusiasm in learning God’s word and watching them apply His lessons to their lives, gives us much joy. One Student, Iyke Ibekwe, told me this week, “What we learn in this bible are things that change our lives forever.” Wouldn’t it be great if we all had that attitude towards God’s word?
