WEST SIDE SERVICE DAY – SATURDAY, AUGUST 19
In the Greater Seattle area, there are 156 church/school partnerships (30% of existing schools). On August 19 (9am-1pm), we head back to ours, Highland Park Elementary, to paint (thanks, Jeremy Keating and crew, for already painting their exterior doors!), support teachers, plant and clean. For more info or to volunteer, contact Lee Sundquist firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our ESL program outreach also starts at Highland Park this fall! It’s our investment in a school that truly needs our support and love.
Pray for the Pastor Nominating Committee as they begin their meetings: Katie Batts, Rick Boogaard, Jill Campbell, Sid Hoagland, John Jacobs, Josh Kutz, Dolores Latham, Hugh MacLean and Elaine McMinn.
SUMMER CLASSES @ 10:40am in Howell Auditorium
Today – Dr. Andy and Dorciane Toth, who have served in Mexico for almost 50 years, will update us on their work. Dorciane grew up at West Side. They now live in Texas but go back to the High Sierras in Mexico, at great risk, several times a year to train pastors and help establish churches among the Pame Indians.
July 23 – Dr. Tim and Muriel Teusink. After many years serving with SIM in Ethiopia, the Teusinks have recently moved to France to be more centrally located for frequent trips to do medical training for doctors in developing countries and to teach at medical conferences. Dr. Teusink is an expert on HIV/AIDS and pioneered teaching in Ethiopian Orthodox Church seminaries in HIV/AIDS prevention, a first for an evangelical.
