Pinon Smoke and Sponsorship

There is a bit of chill in the air these days. I will know it is truly fall when I begin to smell pinon smoke from neighboring fireplaces. However, for many it is not just about the smell of the burning pinon but the heat that it produces. For some, this heat is a matter of life or death on the frigid nights in the East Mountains. Unfortunately...

Meet Demeke!  He is another one of our Hawassa graduates, and one who will be co-teaching with us this week.  Over my visits in the last four years, he has become a friend. Since I was arriving later than the rest of our TLI training team, Demeke was dispatched to the airport to come and receive me.  His was the first...

She was smiling behind an oxygen mask and extending a cup of coffee to me.  “Here,” she shouted above the grumble of chainsaws, “you look a little cold.”  I was grateful for the warmth on that chilly fall morning, but more grateful that she was here. Her oxygen tank was propped against a stump...

Announcements:

The deadline to sign-up for the March 17-26, 2019 Food for the Hungry Bolivia Mission Trip is October 7. Anyone interested in going needs to contact Jen Ward at mccbolivia1@gmail.com to reserve their spot!

Scott Walker will be starting a daily prayer meeting at 6:00 A.M. every weekday morning beginning Monday. The meeting will be held in the fellowship hall. Constant, consistent prayer will influence a ministry far beyond any other ministry in the Church. God is looking for faithful prayer warriors.

MCC's Wood Ministry is hosting a Wood Sponsorship Training October 20th from 9:00am-11:30pm at MCC. We will be highlighting what it means to be a sponsor, how sponsorship changes lives, what the process looks like for sponsors and beneficiaries, and more. Please let Don and Ann Moore know at coolmombody@yahoo.com you will be attending! Snacks will be provided.

Shine is changing the way we help our teachers with supplies at A. Montoya! Instead of doing a supply drive, we’ve created a wish list. Needed items will be posted on the Shine bulletin board downstairs in the Fellowship Hall for you to take and purchase. Those items can be returned to Ashley or Marcie who will deliver them to teachers! This way, we can help teachers get what they actually need! Please check the board periodically and give as you feel led!

The One to One Soul Care Conference will be held at MCC November 9-10. Are you interested in biblical counseling? Do you feel you want some training on how to walk with a brother or sister in their dark seasons? Please join us! You can register at http://centercitychurch.org/one-to-one or contact Elizabeth (mccn14@gmail.com) for more information.

Shine is forming a Cookie Posse!  This will be a group of people who would like to bless the staff at A. Montoya with fresh-baked cookies!  Each time a staff member reaches into our cookie jar, it'll be like getting a big hug from one of us.  Please let Ashley Procter or Marcy Bryant know if you are interested in becoming a part of the Cookie Posse!

Shine also has a unique food pantry at A. Montoya! Kids often go to bed without dinner, come to school too late for breakfast, and aren't sure if there will be dinner that night.  We have been asked to create a small food pantry at the school that would contain items like tuna packets, apples, macaroni and cheese, Ensure or Boost, peanut butter crackers, nuts, and the like.  The children could keep these items in their backpacks so that they would always have  something to keep them going.  We are working on putting together a list of items, including gluten-free ones, that we would like to stock the pantry with.  Please pray about whether you would like to donate items or money to help keep the pantry stocked year-round!
