With the Men’s Advance, the Pathfinder Leadership Weekend, the Littleton Church 50-year celebration, ordinations for Harold Alomiaand Ruddy Vivanco, and our Triennial Constituency Session on Sunday, we have much to be thankful for and to celebrate! Each of these events has a wonderful opportunity to make an impact on hearts and minds for our Savior. Let’s pray that the Lord is present and has His way in each of these important ministry events.
On a personal note, thank you for your prayers for my wife, Diane and her parents following her parents’ car accident. I am happy to report Diane just safely drove her parents from Texas to their home in South Carolina, and is now traveling back to Colorado.
In addition to the special events taking place this weekend, there will be Sabbath services held in the 126 lighthouses spread throughout our conference. I pray every service will hold a blessing for each one as we have the privilege of worshiping our Savior and King.
