May 11: Nick & Marian Castillo, Mohawk, OR
Mohawk is 7 miles from Springfield and 12 miles from Eugene, home of the “Ducks” at the University of Oregon. Mohawk Valley was featured in the old movie “Shenandoah” and is just as beautiful today, hosting several covered bridges and small farms. Mohawk Community Church is strategically positioned at the main crossroads. We send a mailing to over 900 homes in the Valley. Sixteen years ago the church was voting to close the doors due to a lack of spiritual leadership and dwindling attendance. Village Missions was contacted and full-time leadership was provided! Today we are praising the Lord for the raising of a new sanctuary/multi-use building that is about 1/3 finished. Pray for needed funding to complete our building project. Praise the Lord for the majority of our members who are reading scripture and journaling each day. Pray that more will be involved. Pray for new visitors and young people to be drawn to the Lord and to our fellowship.
