Dear Church Family,
The very fact that Christ bore the penalty of man’s transgression is a mighty argument to all created intelligences that the law is changeless; that God is righteous, merciful, and self-denying; and that infinite justice and mercy unite in the administration of His government.

8. Thank you for all the prayers on Jonathan Dietrich’s behalf. Here’s an update from Jonathan:
"God gave us a Christian judge who sent the problem back to the church. This issue was resolved during a lengthy meeting with the angry man and some church members. The angry man should not bother us again. God answered our prayers. We did not get into trouble - foreigners usually lose court cases in this kind of situation in Chad. Please pray for our container to be released from customs and to get safely to Bere." Miracle - The angry man arranged with a certain judge to have this case so as to get Jonathan in trouble. But for some reason that judge did not show up and a Christian judge handled the case. Thank you for your prayers! God heard!!!

13. Our first LIVE STREAM was a success as we gathered for fellowship and food in our front yard. We enjoyed meeting some new people and getting to know one another better as we participated in some “get to know you” activities. Some of the kids enjoyed playing a game of soccer after supper.
Blessings as you prepare for the coming Sabbath!
In His Service,
