Dear Family of Faith at Wyebrook

 

I am reminded of how thankful all of us should be for the Lord’s goodness here at Wyebrook and even the weather in our area. Many places are having a very difficult time. Psalms 103: 1, 2 tell us, “Bless the Lord O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all his benefits.” May we give thanks to the Lord’s for his goodness to us and forget not all his benefits!

 

A special thanks to all of you that gave extra to our mission fund recently. As you have seen in the weekly newsletter we received in December $508.00 over the needed monthly amount to support our missionaries and this will help our missions account that was somewhat depleted. Please keep in mind we do not pull money from the general fund to support missions. What we give to missions directly is what the missionaries get. We all want to be faithful to our supported missionaries and as your Pastor I want to thank you for “putting your money where your mouth is.” If our mission giving will continue in the plus column for a period of six months I would like to see us take on some other missionaries! We all know the need is great and we are thankful for those missionaries in America as well as foreign lands. City Gate is part of that and we are thankful for Brother Jim Davis and friends who are worshipping with us today.

 

May I remind you of the outreach opportunity of our Sweetheart & Friends Banquet coming up Saturday, February 16th 6:00 p.m. at Yoder’s in New Holland. This will not only be a great night of food but it can be a great night of fellowship if you are there and it can even be a greater night if you invite another couple to come along with you! I remember last year we were sharing some good moments as couples and that was a real blessing to Kathy and I as well as to those who came. Please sign up on the list on the back table under the bulletin board and if you pay by check please make it out to Wyebrook Baptist Church as we pay the entire bill the night of the banquet. It will be a great evening out!

 

Praising the Lord and Dependent upon the Master,

 

Pastor Perry
