The Missions Team completed a ramp for an elderly lady who had spent the past few months in rehab for a broken hip. She needed access to her home in order to be released from rehab. Thanks to the men of the Association who give of their time for this ministry.
December 2017 We hold our services on Sunday and Thursday. Services are held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, we worship together and then we share a scripture from the Holy Bible. On Thursday we have Bible class for children as well as for our adult members. We keep the facilities clean, comfortable and well maintained to hold services. We continue making phone calls and visiting our mission members at their homes regularly. We continue visiting Association’s churches, mostly on Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning. This month we visited four churches. Ms. Emma Jean, from Beech Glen, continues to assist us during Sunday services teaching Bible class to the Mission’s children. We are very grateful to God for her willingness to continue teaching our children. Total attendance was of 37 persons. The offerings gathered were a total of $113.00 dollars. They were delivered to the secretary at the Association Offices, Ms. Drusilla Moore. On the 10th service had to be cancelled due to weather. On the 17th we had a time of fellowship. 21 persons attended our reunion. Mr. Luis Villada visited us that day. He is from Mexico. On the 21st service had to be cancelled due to weather. On the 24th service had to be cancelled due to weather as well. We met Mr. Jorge, who is from Mexico, at a restaurant. We invited him to visit us at the Mission. On the 28th we drove Hector Hernandez, a young man from our congregation, to the Marshall Driver’s License Office. On the 31st service had to be ended sooner than usual due to weather conditions. We continue praying that the Lord will send another musician to the mission to join us in worship playing the piano to our God. Thank you for supporting and praying for the Hispanic Mission at Northview Park. God bless you. Sincerely, Pastor Job S. Birrueta Hispanic Minister
