Greetings from Battle Ground!
Carol is currently in Minneapolis where she has joined the Global Fingerprints team for their annual training and team building. The fact that she is there is a major answer to prayer. Sunday morning, September 17 Carol’s 90 year old mother, Vera, slipped and fell in her bathroom at our house. After going to two emergency rooms it was confirmed that she had broken five ribs and cracked two more.
Thankfully, she received excellent care and Carol’s sister committed to taking Carol’s place at the hospital (thank you Annette) and Carol left for Minneapolis the next morning. She will return on Friday, September 22.
Carol and I enjoyed our time with churches this past month! September 8-10 we were in Oroville California with they Evangelical Free Church there. Met some very dear people and renewed our friendship with many more. I will not mention names or this will start looking like their church directory. The weekend was very relaxing and the time at the church was very significant for us.
This has been true of the thirteen other churches we have visited!
The coming weeks see us visiting Trailside (Anchorage) Sept. 24; Central Bible (Centrailia) Oct. 1; Trinity (Boise) Oct. 8 and Chewelah (Chewelah) Oct. 14-15.
Carol was able to spend a week in Manila at the training for site workers and visiting the site of the EFCA Reachglobal’s tenth and newest Global Fingerprints site. If you want to know more go to www.globalfingerprints.org or Fb.com/GlobalFingerprintsEFCA. There are forty-eight children waiting for sponsors.
I, Vance, am retiring in nine days. Carol will continue to work for the mission in her new role with Global Fingerprints. If you choose to continue your financial support, just send it to the same account, it will go to Carol not me.
I have been following several of the Filipino pastors who are attending a conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is such a blessing reading about how they are enjoying the time spent fellowshipping and networking with the other EFC movements throughout Southeast Asia. Thank you for allowing us to be part of this.
In His service and yours,
Carol and Vance Johnson
Reachglobal, the international outreach arm of the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA).
