“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” John Quincy Adams

Our church has moved to the La Quinta Hotel Downtown and the new facility is working out great. The last several Sundays we have been blessed with great visitors and a full congregation of members. Yesterday came close to standing room only.

“Have courage for the great sorrows in life, and patience for the small ones. And when you have laboriously accomplished your daily tasks, go to sleep in peace, God is awake.” Victor Hugo

The Children’s Bible Study class has also been filled to overflowing. Laurie is doing a great job as evidenced by the children’s excitement.

“Patience is the companion of wisdom.” Saint Augustine

Yesterday’s semiannual pizza luncheon was the best ever as was evidenced by record attendance. There was plenty of food and fellowship to go around and everyone had a great time.

Our pre-church entertainment will feature Flip Pallot fly fishing for Pacific Tuna. This is a great presentation with plenty of action. Remember there is an OXXO next door to the hotel if you desire coffee, soft drinks or snacks while watching the show.

Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” Charlie Jones

The purpose of tithing, found in Deuteronomy 14:22-23 (NLT), is made clear: to “teach you always to love the Lord your God.” By practicing good tithing habits, scripture tells us we are showing God our desire to put him first in our lives.
