“I believe that life is given us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower - the Light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence.” Helen Keller
With the financial help of our Blue Diamond Mission Partner in Missouri, renovation of Casa Hogar’s 4th and final community bathroom started today under the watchful eye of our contractor Brian Schaefer. We will be showing project in progress pictures in church.
But don’t think our work is complete…next month, with financial help from the same Blue Diamond Mission Partner, we will rescreen the orphanage to keep the mosquitoes away from our sleeping children. This project will include new quality aluminum screens on all windows and new aluminum screen doors front, side and rear. The contractor for the screening project will be Mr. Reyes, the same contractor that built the Hotel Zone restaurant quality kitchen cabinets for the home.
“Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.” Barbara Johnson

“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 6:1
Speaking of Pizza, yesterday, Pete and Nancy sponsored the monthly Pizza Lunch for our children at Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza. CCF Christian Mission Partners Pete, Nancy, Cherilyn, John, Gary, Jean, George and Tom were on hand to assist with the party. As always, we had a wonderful time visiting with the children.

Our pre-church entertainment will feature Flip Pallot fly fishing the Florida Keys and Everglades. This is a great presentation with plenty of action. Remember there is an OXXO next door to the hotel if you desire coffee, soft drinks or snacks while watching the show.
All to Jesus, I surrender…All to Him I freely give…I will ever love and trust Him…In His presence daily live.” Judson W. Van DeVenter
The purpose of tithing, found in Deuteronomy 14:22-23 (NLT), is made clear: to “teach you always to love the Lord your God.” By practicing good tithing habits, scripture tells us we are showing God our desire to put him first in our lives.
“When you go to a doctor for your annual check-up, he or she will often begin to poke, prod, and press various places, all the while asking, Does this hurt? How about this? If you cry out in pain, one of two things has happened. Either the doctor has pushed too hard, without the right sensitivity or, more likely, there's something wrong, and the doctor will say, we'd better do some more tests. It's not supposed to hurt there!" So it is when pastors preach on financial responsibility, and certain members cry out in discomfort, criticizing the message and the messenger. Either the pastor has pushed too hard or perhaps there's something wrong. In that case, I say, my friend, we're in need of the Great Physician because it's not supposed to hurt there.” Ben Rogers
If you were in church Sunday, you heard Katherine discussing her work with City of Joy Cancun. Katherine has been very faithful in her work with CoJC and is the perfect choice to lead our new Building Spiritual Bridges Outreach with the center. To support our new activity, we have added CoJC information to many of our existing websites and have built a new website to help us succeed in our commitment to them. If Katherine asks you for help, please do so with love in your heart. If you are a CCF Christian Mission Partner and would like to help Katherine, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. To view the new website, click on www.cityofjoycancunfriends.com then scroll and click. The website was built and installed on Monday evening and by Tuesday evening it ranked #8 on page 1 of Google.
“What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude toward it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.” J. Sidlow Baxter
We are currently running eleven websites…ten typical websites pointing out and one directional website pointing in. All websites are linked together and performing flawlessly. The proof is in the pudding…just look at the number of visitors in church each Sunday. All websites are designed for the benefit of our church as well as our Christian Mission Outreach. Our websites are monitored daily and most are tweaked on a weekly basis.
