EFC-ER Missions Materials
We are in the process of creating resources for your church to use to share about EFC-ER mission work. Over the next few weeks you will receive four different files that can be used as bulletin inserts, hand-outs, etc.

Pastors, be sure to check your emails for a new insert each week. You can always find missions materials and information about our missionaries at  www.efcer.org/missions .

Thank you for partnering with us to support our missionaries who are sharing the Gospel of Christ around the world!

Haiti Earthquake - At least 12 people died and hundreds were injured after a powerful 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Saturday. Members from one of our Friends churches were seriously affected by the event. Please pray for Pastor William and the other church leaders as they seek to assist our sister church members who have experienced tremendous damage to their homes. Special gifts may be sent to the Evangelical Friends Headquarters marked “Haiti earthquake” or given online at www.efcer.org/donate  (I John 3:16-18).

Quote for the Week
"Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither - whatever they do prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction." - Psalm 1 (NIV)
