Do you know the two greatest revivals in the Bible? The greatest revival of history took place in ancient Nineveh, the largest city in the world at that time, where the reluctant prophet Jonah preached. Why is that significant?
It is of interest because ten years ago our own Sgt. Gabriel De Roo died in 2006 in Mosul, Iraq, which is ancient Nineveh. We remembered him on Memorial Day. His desire had been to some day do ministry in Iraq. That came true through the De Roo Fund that now helps bring the gospel there. Amazingly over $67,399.66 has come in since Gabe died. Our family and many in Iraq say "Thanks." Keep praying for those who use these funds there for God's glory. A fresh report is available on the Mission Table.
A much greater revival is still to come. Revelation 7:9 speaks of "...a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." This Sunday we'll learn a little more about this amazing event.
For the present we praise the Lord that submittal plans for our building expansion are finished. They were taken to the county building department for review which takes about 11 days. Then they will get back to us regarding the formal permit application fee. Final approval after that usually takes several months. Thanks for praying and sacrificially giving as we build for the generations to come. Total giving to our Building Fund for the last three months has been $13,445 which exceeds the commitments we received thus far. These gifts are also over and above General Fund giving. For details on the expansion go to our website and see Outreach and then 2016 Building Expansion.
June Green turned 100 this week. June was born June 1, 1916 in Orofino, ID. She feels good, looks good, likes to do email, makes greeting cards and was going to the Lobster shop for dinner to celebrate. She does that every 10 years on her birthday. June served the Lord as a pastor's/chaplain's wife for over 50 years. A healthy occupation. Congratulations on becoming a centenarian!
Pastor Juan Carlos Magallanes, whom we support in Quincy, WA, says thanks for your prayers and support to him and Heritage Multicultural Baptist Church. Below is a link to a recent baptism there (about 1.3 min. into it you will see the baptism). Keep praying for them with summer ministries coming up. https://youtu.be/bxU9FnGEmSY?t=2
