Christ Independent Methodist Church
On this beautiful spring-like Sunday, it was hard to believe we are in what is actually supposed to be winter. I can’t remember having so many flowers blooming at this time of year.
We extend a welcome to Laura Lea Sims, a World Gospel Missionary to the American Indians in Arizona. She spoke extemporaneously on her work among the Indians and some of their needs. The reservations are still in need of many services. After a visit with her family, she will be returning to the mission field to minister to the Native Americans. Join us in prayer for this missionary who does God’s work among the Indians of Arizona.
When you pray, remember Dr. Stinson, his sister, Nell and his daughter, Anne, on her way home from Africa as a medical missionary.
Rememer Opal Miller, Dell Moody, Tania Dawson, Cindy McCavitt, Judy Atkinson, Kelley Parker and all others who who need the touch of the Master’s healing hand. Remember our military and their families, our country and our dedicated offiials, our neighbors and each other.
Next Friday is World Day of Prayer. We encourage you to spend time in prayer, as others all around the world will be, for our leaders, nations, schools and families.
We invite you to join us on Sunday night for a study in the Book of Daniel.
Have a blessed week.
