We had a great group of women come out for the Friday night/Saturday morning Mission Retreat. After a delicious spaghetti dinner, we had lots of carbs to burn-
So the fun & games began!

Sure "I Can"

Tammy Weeks motivated the group by bringing a message on all that "I Can" do as a "Woman on Mission" for Jesus Christ
The overnight stay was so much fun and
Saturday morning was all about a little "hands on" missions! The ladies worked filling bags for the Special Olympics and prayed for the recipients of the bags-
And then finished the morning sorting and hanging for the Thrift Store Ministry!
What a Great & Inspiring Time in the Lord!
Great Job Ladies!

Christmas Gathering Around the International Christmas Tree
In November we met to pray for our international missionaries and foreign missions
Our special guest shared from past mission trips to Costa Rica and South Africa
And Tammy encouraged everyone to pray and give to our Armenian Building Project!
A special offering was taken for the Armenian project and we saw the gauge move UP! Hopefully our goal will be accomplished soon and the construction teams will start!
Moving On UP
A few people hung new ornaments on the International Christmas Tree and shared why they were significant to them-
And of course we shared Christmas delights together from all corners of the world!
No matter what language-

It was Yum!
Please continue to pray for our foreign missionaries and our Armenian Building Project!

Our Senior Adult Ministry sponsored a Lunch, Laugh & Love recently-
We served the typical Armenian lunch which is a good amount of homemade sourdough bread & butter, cheeses, rice with chicken. They don't usually have a lot of meat.
"Award Winning Cooks" in the kitchen-Sara & Kent Southerland cooking rice & chicken and Steve Boone cooking chili-Delicious Guys!
Pat Matthis from Warsaw Baptist brought the laughter and finished with his famous "Butter Bean Song"
Paul Langston, our former Director of Missions who is now with the State Convention and Asatur Nahapetyan, the General Secretary of Armenian Baptist spoke about the new foreign mission project to build a church and school in Armenia for the Yazidi refugees. The Armenian Baptist have already secured the land for the construction and our Association is committed to raising the funds for the construction.
It's awesome to think that God can still use us on a project half way around the world!
God has entrusted this project to us and we are off to a great start!
Continue to pray for the project as we hope to have the funds raised and teams going to help build by next year!
The New Project
We had a Great Offering Seniors!
You helped move us a little closer to the goal!
Pumpkins & Praise Fall Festival was delayed a couple of weeks due to a hurricane threat but the Lord always knows best-The day was perfect!
God gave an abundance of Pumpkins this year and a "New" stage for our Praise Groups to perform! We also were given a "New" sound system that is phenomenal!
Many of churches and other vendors had craft and food booths!
And many of our church kids and teens offered free games and prizes for children!
The Raffle Fun was won by Alice Bland! A special "Thank-You" to Carolyn Cottle of Peace Baptist for selling 1,250 tickets and "Thank-You" Poultry Queens for selling the day of the event!
