Yearly Meeting 2018 - We'd like your feedback!
If you were unable to attend, all of the Yearly Meeting sessions (except the concert) are available at www.efcer.org/ym18.

We would love to hear about your experience at YM. Please take a few minutes to complete a survey here to help us plan for next year.
India Flooding  
Torrential monsoon rainfall over the past month has caused massive flooding and is wreaking havoc in southern India. Benson Sam reports: “Many of our church members are in shelter homes. Many are homeless… they are in deep poverty due to continue rain. Please pray and support our people in this difficult situation.” ER will be sending an immediate gift to assist in this situation. Special gifts may be sent to the EFC-ER office marked “India Flood” or gifts may be made through our website.   Please pray for our bothers and sisters in Christ.

William and Marie Bertrand
Please pray for William as he recovers from blood clots in his lungs that prevented him from attending ER's Yearly Meeting. Pray for complete healing and that he will be permitted to return to Haiti next month. (Ex. 15:26)

 David Aufrance
David returns to the hospital August 23 for five days of testing. Please continue to lift up Dave and Cindy in your prayers.

1) RiverGrace Fellowship (Hong Kong) has a new website: https://rivergrace.org/ .

2) While Julia McDonald is out of the office this next week, Julie Jenkins will edit the Weekly Encourager . Send current news stories and updates for next week's edition to jmcdonald@efcer.org.
