MISSIONS NEWS
 
News from Mike and Julie Ganey
Tenwek Hospital in Kenya lost one of its buildings Friday night, February 9, due to a terrible fire. They write: “Our kitchen that fed our patients and the restaurant that fed our staff and visitors are both gone. The Wound Ward, Visiting Staff offices and other offices are gone. The laundry room and sterilizing room were affected, but the machines themselves seem OK. A tiny child was undergoing open heart surgery with a visiting pediatric cardiac surgery team, a challenging case that lasted 7 hours. They kept going while the hospital was burning. The child is alive and doing well. God has kept everyone safe. Everyone: Patients, staff, our neighbors who came to help. And we could tangibly see the community that God has built at Tenwek. It’s an honor to be serving here. Amazing grace.” Here is a link to their blog: http://www.ganeys.com/blog.

 

 
 
BIBLE CLASS ELECTIVES
 
  • I Will : Dr. Bob Paeglow, Class Facilitator, Room  320
This class is based on Thom Rainer’s book. It is focused upon transforming from a passive, information gathering, inwardly focused believer to an active, outwardly focused disciple. Empowering the believer to pick up their ministry and “run the race.”
 
  • International Justice Mission Prayer Group: Room 316
IJM provides an updated prayer list each week for us to pray through. IJM strongly believes in the power of prayer. When we pray about the very difficult and painful circumstances in which IJM finds children, women and men, we partner with them and God himself, in setting them free. We learn a lot about various forms of human trafficking, slavery and other forms of oppression around the world and how IJM works not only to free those trapped, but also how it works with local governments, law enforcement and courts to reform justice systems. 
 
  • The Book of Mark: Tom White, Class Facilitator, Room 325
  • Justice Study Group : Kathleen Courtney, Class Facilitator, Room 318
This class will meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM in March in Room 318. We will be covering chapters  9-12 of God of Justice: IJM Institute Global Church Curriculum. Contact Kathleen Courtney, kathhopecourt@gmail.com, about getting a copy of the study guide or other information. Come learn about God’s heart for justice for those oppressed by violence and the privilege of partnering with Him in setting the captives free and bringing healing and restoration.
