We continue holding our services on Thursday and Sunday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. On Thursday, we have Bible class for children as well as for our adult members. On Sunday, we worship together and then we share a scripture from the Bible. We also have Bible class for children. We continue making phone calls and visiting our mission members at their homes regularly. We also visit people to invite them to attend service at the Mission. We continue visiting Association’s churches, mostly on Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning. We share with them about our work at the Hispanic Mission and we ask them to pray for us, so the Lord will add more people to His church. This month we visited four churches. Ms. Emma Jean, from Beech Glen, continues to kindly assist us during Sunday services teaching Bible class to the Mission’s children. Ms. Wendy Wheeler, from Oak Ridge, has kindly joined us on Sunday Service playing piano.118 persons attended service. The offerings gathered were a total of $239.00 dollars. They were delivered to the Association Offices Administrative Assistant, Ms. Drusilla Moore. On the 2nd, a woman from Guatemala was visited at her home. She is a Northview Park resident. She received a brochure and a box of groceries. On the 7th, David Perez, a young boy from our church, received a tambourine. He was eager to join worship time playing this instrument. On the 14th, we enjoyed a time of fellowship with our children. We had pizza and dessert. We thank God for this time of joy that we spent together. On the 23rd, Middlefork Baptist Church gave us groceries to be shared among our Mission members. We are very thankful for their support. May God bless you all. Thank you for supporting and praying for Northview Hispanic Mission. God bless you. Sincerely, Pastor Job S. Birrueta Hispanic Minister
