October 20: Nick & Marian Castillo, Mohawk, OR
We are located in Western Oregon, six miles from Springfield and Eugene. Our beautiful valley includes logging industry and a few ranches and farms. Many have “hobby farms” but work in town. Our area, with its covered bridges and the Mohawk River, was the filming place of the old Jimmy Stewart movie “Shenandoah.” Mohawk itself now boasts a General Store, Rifle Range, Country Club, Meat Packing Plant, a charter school, and, of course, the Mohawk Community Church where we have served with Village Missions for the past 22 years. Village Missions has a long history here and was here in the 60’s and 70’s. We were married here in 1971 and returned here in 1991 to serve the Lord. Fishing, hiking, hunting, biking, and river rafting are just a few of the recreational possibilities here. We have a new sanctuary and are anxious to see the Lord fill it up! Pray for wisdom and especially that new young families might be attracted to our church.
