It's Donna's Birthday!! Most of you know that Donna is my "older" sister; she is also a friend, co-worker in the ministry, loyal supporter, and fellow musician. I appreciate Donna's ministry among us with the realization that she could easily have chosen to serve in a place where she gained more notoriety. I certainly appreciate what she contributes to our body. Blessings on this special day! RJ
The Church service was interesting and inspiring today! Marsha Relyea Miles took us on a journey of time and distance to Papua New Guinea. 30 years ago she and her late husband John, (with children) moved to the jungle to live with the Aruamu tribe. They developed an alpha-bet, because there was no written language. Then they started the dual process of translating the Bible into the language of Aruamu tribe, while teaching them how to read and write in the "new" written language. The results? Many churches have been planted among the different Aruamu tribes and thousands have become believers in Christ.
In today's service, two young men from the Aruamu tribe stood before us as converts to Christ. Both of them gave a testimony of God's saving power! Following the service we had a fund raising dinner for famine relief for the Aruamu people. We raised $8,200.00. Thank you for your generosity. You all truly rock for Jesus!!
Big Shout Out to Crystal Miller!! Today is Crystal's Birthday! May the coming year be the best yet for you and your family!! RJ
Happy Birthday Mary! OK, let me get started by saying that Mary is one of the nicest persons on planet earth!! Mary and her husband, Jimmy, have been a part of Believers Church from the very beginning. For many years Mary served as one of our main teachers for the Children's Ministries; recently, she has been serving alongside Jimmy in caring and "pastoring" people. I certainly feel blessed by the simple fact that Mary is a part of our Church family! RJ
Happy Birthday Leila! The first word that comes to mind when I think of Leila is "doer." Since I have known Leila she has ambitiously and effectively taken on and completed projects for Believers Church. She and her husband, Jim, have been faithfully putting the Sunday Bulletin together from the first Sunday that BC opened its doors. "Thank you" Leila for your faithfulness...it is greatly appreciated!! RJ
Happy Birthday Anthony!! Anthony is a great brother although, "The Pittsburgh Steelers," are you kidding me? O well, Anthony, and his family have been a blessing and a part of Believers Church from the very beginning. I know that Anthony has now moved into working as a realtor with his wife, Melissa; we wish you much blessings as you take on the new challenge! RJ
Happy Birthday Matt!! Matt, Irene and the girls moved back to our community this last year--Yay!! Matt has been a valuable member of Believers Church from the very beginning. Acting, playing guitar, singing, and basically serving anywhere needed. This is a very gifted brother. Hope that you have a great Birthday, Matt! RJ
