Our guest speaker February 17th is missionary Niouma Leno: 11:00 church service, potluck and a 2:30 pm program. He is from a long line of Animists destined to be the next priest of his village after his father and grandfather. After becoming a Christian he accepted the call to minister in West Africa. He and his wife are now missionaries with Adventist Frontier Missions, going into regions that have never heard the name of Jesus, bringing the Gospel into a region steeped in spiritualism and fear.

Afternoon session: The functioning of the deliverance ministry in Africa, the reality and the role of spirits among animists, how Jesus achieves victory over evil spirits.


Secret Sisters: March 2nd is the last day to leave and pick up gifts in the ERC room.


Don Brooks' Celebration of Life will be held at Stone Tower on February 25 -- time to be announced.
