August 30, Bob and Patty Brown, Mossyrock, WA:

Mossyrock is beautifully located within minutes of two lakes, each with a hydro dam. Both lakes have multiple camping areas, which is a draw for our area. Christmas tree farming, chicken farms, fish hatcheries, blueberry farms, and a huge tulip bulb farm also surround us. Pray for families with children to become part of our […]

Tom and Karen Owen, Tensed, ID:

We had 11 kids go the Senior Camp this year at Pinecroft and one young adult go as a Senior Camp counselor. We were excited to see progress in a particular family who, a few years ago, was quite adamant about not wanting their kids to go to camp. This year, four of their kids […]

Village Missionaries and the Indian Civil Servants

A friend of mine recently gave me something he had copied from Peter Drucker’s classic work, “Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices.” Drucker has been a particular favorite of his, ever since he studied under him at Claremont. I was struck by the similarities between Village Missionaries and Drucker’s classic description of the Indian Civil Service.The Indian […]

August 28: Steve & Sharon Waite, Wytopitlock, ME

Ours is a very small, very family oriented community of less than 200 people. Our two neighboring communities, Bancroft and Drew Plantation, are a little smaller and also friendly; they’re just west of the locally well-known East Grand Lake near Danforth. These towns have been well known for hunting, fishing, logging. In recent years some […]

Redland, OR

We met Adam and his parents 14 years ago when we first moved to Redland, when he was 3 years old. They’d heard about our Awana program from their neighbors, so they brought Adam to my (Lisa) Cubbies class, even though the parents were not Christians. He became friends with our Jeffrey and Jewelissa, who […]

NEW GLOUCESTER, ME

We were blessed with another fruitful VBS week as two young girls came to salvation, and a third recommitted her life to the Lord. That was followed a week later by our annual church picnic and baptisms. Eleven were baptized, which was a tremendous encouragement for our entire congregation. The weather was ideal and the […]

August 14: Jeremiah & Elizabeth Knoop, Scotia, NE

Nestled amongst palm trees at the corner of town, our little church just celebrated its centennial anniversary. Landscape: ocean beaches, golf courses, vineyards; major crops: sugar cane, grapes, coffee beans, coconuts; primary industry: fishing…well…that’s not entirely true. OK – not even slightly true! While Chalk Hills Community Church has served this community for 100 years, […]

Lenwood, a suburb of Barstow, is in the middle of the Mojave Desert in southern CA. This community, as with most across our nation today, is going through very tough times. We’ve seen several businesses close and jobs disappear. Although we do have major employment sources of the railroad and multiple military bases in the […]
