May 25: Joe & Karla Beard, McCleary, WA
McCleary has a population of 3000 and is about 20 miles west of the state capital of Olympia, making it an easy commute for those who work in the city. Because of its prime location, the town should continue to grow. McCleary is also home of Simpson Door Factory and annually sponsors the Bear Festival. McCleary Community Church is centrally located in the town, and we have an average attendance of 50 people. We praise the Lord for new people coming to the church and for the spiritual growth taking place in the lives of those attending. Pray for the Vacation Bible School that will be taking place in June or July. Pray that we would have plenty of help and that the Lord would fill our building with boys and girls who need to hear the life-changing story of Jesus.
