  Next Sunday, October 28, Begin Renew’s World Hunger Campaign Sunday. You are invited to join churches from Chandler, Leota,

    A few weeks ago we were pleased to see a video update from Glenn and Laura Adams, our missionaries in Sucre, Bolivia.  This week 
 we received an urgent request from them, as seen in the newsletters distributed in your mailboxes.  Currently their support account is negative 
 and they need more funds just to buy plane tickets to return to the US and visit churches.  They are hoping to visit our church this summer as 
 well.  The best way to support them is to give a monthly pledge of $25, $50, or $100 that can be automatically given with a credit or debit 
 card.  Would you prayerfully consider supporting this important work?  Visit https://www.pioneers.org/give/ to sign up.
   October is Pastor Appreciation month so please take time to send a card or say “thank you” to Pastor Josh.
   Parents:  The doors at the north end of the Sunday School hallway aren't being closed properly.  Please remind your children to use the 
 south doors unless there is an emergency.

  THANK YOU
    Thank you for your prayers, cards, and kind words of comfort and encouragement during Lynette's battle with cancer and finally her passing
 into heaven.  All of those good deeds have given us comfort and strength while going through the valley of the shadow of death.  God is faithful.
 He has been with us.

   I would like to thank all those who prayed, sent cards and came to visit during my sickness. I am especially thankful to God that I have
 no complications from it.
