A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

USA – Harvest Kids with CEF, January 11, 2020

     We had a new game to play today. The kids had scrambled letter tiles on the floor and had to spell a word they were given by pulling the tiles onto a circle drawn on the floor without using their hands. The words were from these phrases: We live by faith. We hope in Jesus. We give Him glory. We were excited to share that the final work on the primary school they helped build in NW Uganda was complete and the kids were in school. We started a new project to replace the mosquito nets for the orphans that live at the Nalidi Grace Primary orphan school in E Uganda. We will need 25 nets for the girls and 29 nets for the boys that costs $11 each in Uganda. We will also be trying to raise money for 21 sets of sheets to cover some of the foam mattresses that don’t have them. They now have $92 and are collecting their change to get them all. You are welcome to drop your change and empty aluminum cans off at the Harvest Home, 9467 Pierce Lane, in Sedro Woolley. We were again blessed to have Lynn and Christine from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship come and share their inter-active ministry which is always entertaining and brings the truth of God’s love to everyone.  Today’s focus was on “God’s plans are good!” and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) We will be meeting again on Saturday, Jan 25th, from 10am-12:30pm. Later that same day, we will have a family night at the Children’s Museum at the Outlet Mall in Burlington from 6-8pm. Please contact us for more information. 360-982-8159 or 360-421-8811.     


USA – Smokey Pt. Rest Area outreach ministry, December 27-30, 2019

     Many thanks to everyone that donated cookies and helped share the love of Jesus with people at the Smokey Pt. Rest Area on Interstate 5 over this holiday weekend. We received almost $250 that will be used to build God’s Kingdom locally, in Mexico, El Salvador, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Burundi, the DRCongo and Australia. It is amazing what this simple act of unselfishness does to encourage so many people that share their gratitude with those of us that choose to serve. We surely want everyone that prays, provides cookies and allows their family to come and participate to share in this special joy.

    “This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.”

(2 Corinthians 9:12-13)  


USA – Harvest Kids and CEF, December 28, 2019

  What a beautiful day that the Lord provided for our last Harvest Kids fellowship of the year. After crushing cans that had been donated, these young people counted out their donated change and had $86 that will finish paying the money for the Comfort Africa ministry to orphans in Uganda and to pay the teachers of the Wambuti pygmy tribe in the DRCongo. Their next project will be replacing the mosquito nets for the orphans that attend and live at the Nalidi Grace Primary School in northeast Uganda. It was great to have Wayne and his mother-in-law, Stanny from Canada, and his wonder dog, Walker with us at Harvest Kids. Lynn, from Child’s Evangelism Fellowship, shared the story of Jesus, from birth to death and resurrection to the kids and they were able to help with the lesson. The “Word Up” for the day was, “God keeps His promises”. We are praying that our young people can be built up in God’s Word and strengthened before they enter their mission field in the public school at the first of the year.

   “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength. These commandments that I give your today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:5-9)

   Thank you to everyone that prays and support these young people as they become true disciples of Jesus Christ and agents of change in their families, schools, communities and around the world.
