Spotlight on Missions

From Bob & Phyllis Homan

“We were delighted to hear from so many of you at Christmas with cards, letters, and gifts.  It is encouraging to know you care about our ministry.  Unless you send support directly to us, we are notified about it until the end of the month, so thanks come late to you.  Starting this year all support gifts went to the RBM office for us will be taxed.  We were involved with a missionary conference in January, representing Tamarack Valley at Orangeville Baptist.  Persons ten to fifty almost all know “Uncle Bob”, not only at Orangeville but throughout Barry and Eaton Counties.  Most remember him from RBM as their Bible Teacher.  Orangeville has been a faithful supporter and prayer warrior for over fifty years as many of you, even with the change of ministries.  Our car tire kept going flat, and it was determined the wheel was cracked.  With the wheel replaced, we are back in business.  Thanks to a good mechanic nephew, Eric.  He keeps us on the road and safe.  Thanks for your prayers for our safety.”

The new year brings opportunities for ministry in the county jail.  Have you ever given serious consideration to ministry in this area?  We would like to have a small team of people from our church that goes into the jail (about 4, 5 times a year on Sunday afternoons) to lead singing, provide special music, give testimony, and bring a Bible message.  Please see Pastor Dan if you are concerned for this ministry and for the men and women who often are “forgotten” in our communities.  Pray for our Chaplain Bill Medendorp who serves there each week.

The 2015 jail dates are March 1, June 7, August 30, October 11, November 22.
