Spotlight on Missions

From the Gilles

“I’m taking just a few minutes to catch you up with our past few months.  We have already had 15 Life Application Bible Studies this year!!  Currently our groups are studying the book of Deuteronomy, and all is going well.  In March we had a weekend retreat at our house and studied Jesus as the “True Vine” from John 15…Paul taught 5 separate lessons and spent time with the guys…Courtney cooked amazing meals for the whole weekend along with having good times of input with the girls who attended.  March also brought a chance for those in our groups to do ministry…we helped Dale Noland with his Word of Life teen event “Engage”-some of us judged and some helped in the stats room…we traveled to and from Grand Rapids together, ate breakfast, lunch, and supper together, and served the Lord together!  Thanks to all who have been praying, encouraging, and giving!  We continually meet new Young Adults who are interested in our ministry.  Your part helps make it possible for us to be available to them.  We are getting more and more excited about our South Africa opportunity in December.  As of today there is $870 in our account for the trip. Also, please be sure to visit our “newly remodeled” web site!
