texting

How to reach somebody. Or, don’t phone them—text.

How to reach people? It depends on the person. If you want to reach me, email me. That’s the quickest way. If you send me a message on some social medium, I may not see it for a day or two.

Other people won’t read email. Others, especially young people, don’t answer phone calls—you have to text them. I seldom answer or return phone calls originating out of our area. I may not see a text message for hours or even a day. Continue reading “How to reach somebody. Or, don’t phone them—text.”

Call for reports for Global Harvest

This email came from Betty Choate:

I am putting together a new issue of our mission magazine, Global Harvest, and would like to include a report about the work you are doing. If you would send that report digitally, along with one or two photos, that would be very helpful. I do receive printed reports from some of you, and even PDF reports by email from others, but to use files from those formats means that I have to type the contents myself — and I am always short on time. If you can help me with speeding up the process, and at the same time allow me the opportunity to spread the word to others about your work, that would be of benefit to God’s kingdom. I hope to hear from you ASAP, so that I can get this project finished and move on to other work that needs to be done. God bless you. I will be watching for your email. Blessings, Betty

I can’t guarantee she’ll publish everything she receives, but this would be a good opportunity for some friends.

Jesus told people the truth. The truth saves and frees. But because people loved their bondage, they found his truth hard to accept. They were offended by it, so they deserted him and refused to follow him any more, Jn 6.60-66.

So I was dismayed and encouraged in March, when I went to the National Christian Workers Encounter, at what I heard. Continue reading “They thought I was radical and hard”

Children’s home renews spiritual training

lar-cristao-orfanato

By Edmilson José de Souza — I assumed the position of Executive Director in April, 2015. I had already been a part of the board of directors for several years. My name is Edmilson, and I’m a member of the church of Christ in Jundiaí. I serve as a deacon.

First, I’d like to thank greatly the financial contribution that you have made to the home. Your help has been a great blessing.

Your help makes it possible to purchase food and other necessities to maintain the every-day routine of the home, as well as provide some moments of recreation for the children.

A new president of the home also was installed when we assumed the board of directors. Then we noted a number of unfavorable situations that needed changes, with much patience and prayer. Continue reading “Children’s home renews spiritual training”
