May 16: Dale & Dorothy Wise, Eddyville, OR
We’re about 23 miles east of the Oregon Coast. Our community depends mostly on logging for income and that, with the recession, has hit the community hard. A few teach, do electronic work, or drive outside of our community, and they for the most part are still employed. Our Good News Club has 30+ kids each week, but only one of those children attends our church…the rest live outside of Eddyville. Our congregation is mostly older than 65, so energy is an issue. The folks are faithful and do their best to keep serving the Lord. Pray for pre-retirees to come and be added to our church, for new families to move into our area, and for the folks here to be encouraged.
