Among many other things, we often take time in our weekly staff meetings to share news of how we see God working in our lives and ministries. Here’s what emerged this past Tuesday–note we had the Felushkos from Vancouver with us:
Karla: Chris Pope’s surgery went far better than even the doctors expected. God worked through a very difficult time and blew our faith away. Chris and Gwen have been a wonderful example of faithful disciples through this. Also, a few long-awaited Bible studies have been starting in Tacoma since the conference.Lynne: The “40 Days of Blessing” challenge has been a big boon for the women in our mission town (Northeast Seattle). They’re holding each other accountable and being “encouragement partners” in the mission. Many stories to share are coming from the challenge!
Carol: I’m encouraged by how much more “alive” her faith is by sharing her faith more consistently.
Jay: Eight new names were added to the “Seek-O-Meter”, meaning 8 new people have studied about seeking God in the past couple of weeks.
Scott: Alex’s midweek lesson was a big hit. The Green’s mission town is becoming very faithful about the impact they can have on their city.
Sara Felushko: She had the opportunity to do a workshop at a member’s workplace and has been witnessing through her work there. The Vancouver church has grown in getting their shepherding group in place and have been much more faithful about seeing God’s hand work through them. Every “Life Group” has a shepherd in it now.
Brian Felushko: The “three point plan” has been highly successful. The partnership with the Seattle church has benefited both greatly. Their shepherding group has been approaching 50 total – an astounding number. Their life groups have begun planning on a new evangelistic focus and campaign. They have a plan and they’re working that plan!
