God made a promise to Abraham that he would have an uncontrollable number of descendants - more than
the stars in the sky. For exactly 430 years.  Abraham’s descendants, the Israelites, had been slaves in the
land of Egypt. Moses led 600,000, plus women & children out of Egypt in the middle of the night. God did
not lead Moses and the Israelites through enemy land. Rather He led them through the desert toward the
Red Sea as they journeyed to the Promised Land.
Exodus 16:2-3 And the whole congregation of the Children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in
the wilderness: And the children of Israel said unto them, would that we had died by the hand of Jehovah in
the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, when we did eat bread to the fill. For ye have brought is
forth into this wilderness, to kill the whole assembly with hunger.
Even after the many miraculous sights the Israelites witnessed, some turned their back on God and lost
faith. How often we as Christians lose faith because things don’t happen the way we feel they should. Are
we short term thinkers? God has a plan for each one of us, if we will only let Him work in our life.  We are
here to be servants and do His will. Because our reward is not of this world.
Our sins do not have to keep us apart from God any longer. Believe in Him, repent and be baptized and be
forgiven. The blood of Jesus Christ gives us that promise of eternal life. If we are faithful and obedient. Hold
to the truth of The Word.

A NECESSARY WORK
       
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in
their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world" (James 1:27 NIV).
       “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.   God sets the lonely in
families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land" (Psalms 68:
5-6 NIV).
       “When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers,
I will not listen.  Your hands are full of blood; wash and make yourselves clean.  Take your evil deeds out of
my sight!  Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!  Seek justice, encourage the oppressed.  Defend the cause
of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow" (Isaiah 1:15-17 NIV).
       One of God's consistent, and most important, teachings is to care for the orphans and widows.  The
theme of mercy permeates the Scriptures from beginning to end.  I've always felt that one of God's greatest
laws is that of showing mercy.  There will always be those in this world who are unable to care for
themselves, and if we fail to show them mercy, we fail to be like Christ.
       This congregation supports three different works which deal with homeless children: Mid-Western
Children's Home, Potter's Orphan's Home, and Orphans Lifeline International.  Your contribution helps to
support taking care of these children.  At times, we may be able to help a homeless child directly, even
providing a home for them.  Other times, we can only help provide funding for those who can help directly.  
Either way assists someone who cannot help themselves.  Thank you for caring and serving in this manner.
                                                                       We love you all - Keith
