Update from Missionary Paul Ingold

Ingold Prayer Update

1. Nancy’s Parents and Jeremy’s Challenges and Blessings

I got off the plane in LA from India and in 4 hours got on another one to Seattle. I met Nancy and Jeremy there just in time for his work-up at the kidney transplant center.

Good News I: Jeremy is now completely ready for a new kidney!
Challenging News I: He has O- blood type (a rare one), and can only have a donor from O- or O+ blood types!

Challenging News II: Nancy’s Mom (with limited strength) and Dad (with failing health in rehab) are moving from their home to Crista retirement center and need help. It is not easy to let go of normal home life and come to a 614 sq. ft. apt, especially when you are not feeling well.

Good News: Nancy, Nancy’s brother, and a super family friend Cora are doing all they can to help them through! And, Crista is a famous Christian retirement place, the Christian part especially requested by Mom! (that is amazing!)
Good News II: Someone on staff at Crista was talking with Nancy — she (before meeting Nancy) said she had been thinking (of all things) about donating a kidney and said, “I have O- blood too.” Nancy started to cry!
She said she would go to the transplant website and begin the process to see if she would qualify to give a kidney to Jeremy!
(If anyone else feels led to do this, too, you can begin to see if you qualify by going to this website and fill out the potential living kidney donor screening at the website below and mention Jeremy Ingold’s name.)

2. Prabhu Yeshu Granth (Hindi Bible)

Thank you, thank you so much for standing in prayer with us. What a great trip I had to India! By God’s grace and through your prayers we accomplished several things:

— Nearly resolved the copyright issue..Please pray with us now for the BSI Executive Committee and Dr. Chako as they are to make a final decision on our proposal to use their out-of-print text — March 16 (our March 15th night in USA/Canada)
— Established a good relationship with Wycliffe India
— had six+ wonderful (and full) days of editing the text, testing some changes with Hindi-speakers there in Varanasi, and fellowshipping with those who give their lives for the sake of the gospel in Hindi and other North Indian languages.
–met brother Vivek who will put our preview text on an app (he plans to do that next week as we get some more final changes to him)

Thank you again so much for your prayers and partnership with us!

This is me on the Ganges River in front of Tulsi Ghat. Tulsidas (1523-1623) wrote his epic poem about Ram here (Ramcharitmanas). That poem has been hailed as “the best and most trustworthy guide to the popular living faith of the Indian people”. He basically took stories about Ram and put them into a form that the people enjoyed (and Bollywood continues to update his work). It is our prayer that our new translation can be a part of the movement to see the Bible become that “most trustworthy guide” for Hindi-speakers throughout the world.

Translation teammates Raman Singh and Swami Muktanand

Brother who drove our boat, sang bhajans about Lord Yeshu with us, Responded to 1 Cor. 6 in our new translation with a personal prayer request for inner change.

What is this? This was a breakfast called “eggless omlette” and chai. This vegetarian specialty is from Swamiji’s Ashram (which of course is vegetarian) in Varanasi! (it is made from suji — like cream of wheat — and channa /chikpea flour, little pieces of vegetable and fried). Yumm.. Bahoot badiya!

Connect Student Ministry


Posted on : 08-03-2018 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

In the Student Ministry, we have been looking into the subject of God’s glory. God’s glory is one of those “church” words students think they understand until they actually try to define it. Then, they realize they really don’t have a good grasp on what God’s glory is. Over the course of this study, our hope is that the students will come to understand that God’s glory speaks primarily to the honor and awe due to God simply for who He is, the role Jesus played in physically demonstrating God’s glory on this earth, and that God is given glory as our students live out their everyday lives, especially during tough times.

Another awesome thing to note is that we have 20 spots reserved for camp this year. We will be going to Pineywoods Camp from Monday, July 23rd to Friday, July 27th. The cost is $265.

Deposits and Registration Information Forms are due in MARCH!

Sign up for Disciple Now, which will be from March 16th to 17th, has also started and medical release forms have been sent home with the students. On a side note, parents please take the time to read over the paperwork your students are bringing home to you. Many times they list off the exact things your students will need for the activity we are doing. Also, some of our activities require that students have a current medical release form on file. I do not want to have to send any students home for not having what they need.

Joseph Chumchal, Pastor of Student Ministries

Work Day – March 24


Posted on : 08-03-2018 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

LADIES… For the work day on March 24 we’ll be providing a light breakfast and lunch and in addition to this you’re invited hang around and help with the sprucing up. The plan is to do a little clean up in kitchen and back pantry… and a lot of FELLOWSHIP! I’m looking forward to seeing you on the 24th as we spend some time together as a family in service to our loving Father God. m

BUILDING & GROUNDS We will be having a work day at the church on Saturday, March 24 at 8am to spruce up a bit for Easter. (Ladies are invited too) As always, if you feel lead to serve with the Building & Grounds Team please tell Gary, Oscar, Wendell, Jim or myself (Darren) that you’re interested and we will be happy to let you know what we have going on. If fixing stuff and getting dirty isn’t your thing, and you haven’t found an area where you think you might fit in, I encourage you to just jump in and serve in one of our several ministries. If you find that a particular ministry isn’t for you, get involved in another one. There is a place for everyone in the body to serve. It’s amazing how the Spirit can move through a faithful servant that is nothing more than willing. Matthew 9:37-38

Mission Trip 2018


Posted on : 08-03-2018 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

Plans are under way for MT 2018, we are currently seeking as to where the Lord would have us to serve this year. We are not exactly sure what our work will include but most likely be very similar to past trips. It is quite possible that we will leave the church on Saturday June 16 and return on Sunday, June 24.

At this time we are looking to get an idea as to how many we will have going. If you intend to be a member of the team, or are considering it please pick up one of the forms from the foyer or see Maudell to get one, just fill it out and return it to the office before March 4. Youth must have their parent’s signature as well. Thank you to all who have responded already, we are looking forward to serving with you.

Please be in prayer for those who are seeking the Lord’s will as to where we will serve this year, and those who have already committed to the mission. As you do so please give prayerful consideration as to how the Lord would have you to serve with us.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering – Missions North America


Posted on : 08-03-2018 | By : wmb | In : Uncategorized

“We must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action.” (1 John 3:18) John provides the essence of a life on mission; it’s the calling for all followers of Christ. Sculpted in God’s image, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to boldly share the gospel so that others will know His love. No matter where we are or what our stage of life may be, God is calling us to be His advocates through praying, giving and going. With over 269 million people in North America who do not know Jesus Christ, we must urgently pursue God’s plan to be on mission here and now. Our prayers and support make it possible for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to train, resource & send more than 5000 missionaries who share the good news of Christ. They are putting John’s words into action with our help. Prayer guides for Week of Prayer, March 4-11 & offering envelopes will be available throughout this month.
