Find my Phone

April 20, 2017 - This week I was working loading the car and my phone slide out of my pocket. I did not realize this until I was a few blocks away.  I went back but could not find it anywhere.

But I have an app that will tell me where my phone is, I can lock it and even sound an alarm. So with my tablet I activated the "Find my Phone App". Sure enough I could see that it was near our location and on the move. I hit the alarm button and then went out on foot to look for it.

As I got closer to where it said my phone was I found 2 teens looking for something on the ground. I greeted them and they respond with “iPhone?” I replied yes and they began to quickly tell me what was going on -(Which at the time I did not get). I said I would give each young man a reward for helping me to find the phone. Which we did with the help of my tablet.

Once my phone was found I called Peggy who found out the story the guys were sharing for me. Seems another guy found the phone and was going to keep it until the alarm went off - then he threw it away and ran. The two guy looking for the phone kept telling the other guy he could not keep it that he needed to get it to the owner and they were looking for it to do that.

I was happy to get the phone back and was happy to give the two guys a reward for helping me (that was much less than what It would have cost to replace the phone).

I was so thankful for the find my phone app and for the two guys who were willing to help me get what was mine.

God is looking for folks to help him get back what was his to start with and that is why we are here to help find the lost and get them back into a relationship with God. 

This week pray for:

The new store opening in Kyustendil (on Saturday) More on that next week!

Pray for our new employees as they will run and manage the store.

Pray for Jill and David Sweet as they continue the process of getting ready to come to Bulgaria later this year.

     


Happy Easter 2017

April 13, 2017 - This is Easter week. The time when even the marginal people in the world are made aware of Jesus and the church. This year Easter in the east and the west celebrate it on the same day.

So for all our supporters and readers out there - Happy Easter! Celebrate and do not be ashamed but use this time to bring to Christ the marginalized around you. They need to hear the message that Easter brings. It is why we do what we do.

He is risen! .....

Sweets Need your help! April 6, 2017

April 6, 2017 - Over the past few months David and Jill Sweet have traveled with us through out Michigan as they continued their fundraising to go to Bulgaria.

Fundraising is not an easy thing to do especially if you do not know the pastors or have much connection with other churches. WE were happy to help them get better connected with churches and individuals supporting Bulgaria and our work there.

Here is a link to their web page that will tell you more about what they are doing: https://sweetsinbulgaria.wordpress.com/

We need your help. We want to get the Sweets to Bulgaria by early July and to do that we need to raise or get pledges (over 2 years) for about $44,000.

So what I want to ask for your help on several with this:

Pray for them and their fundraising needs
Invite them (in in or near Michigan) to come and speak to your small group or Church
Consider a gift to the Sweets - either one time or an annual amount
Get your small group or Sunday School Class to pray for and maybe supporting them as well.

We do not ask for funds very often but ministry takes people and fund to make it happen and we need prayers and givers to support us in the field. That is just the facts.

Thanks for your interest and support for the work.

Pray for the Sweets
Pray for the Wells
Pray for the Galloways
And pray for us too!
