Protection from Covid

⇒ Responses are slow with our correspondence classes at Silverdale. Please pray for this to change.

Needs for our office – flooring, desk, shelving, supplies, paint, etc., and the help we need to

⇒ Pray for Donna to see Jesus clearly through each one of us, and for her to continue on the right path. 


We are working out the details so we can begin remodeling our new office. We have the key! We will be sharing the office with the Hispanic Church Leadership Team at the Brainer Baptist Eastridge Campus.

Our participant, Donna, will begin a new job with “Homes Made Ready.” We are grateful that the owners of this business use it for Christian discipleship.

Technically, we already have three Faith & Finance classes when we include The Bethlehem Center. We all trained together and will work together in the future. Work Life will be offered to participants of all three Faith & Finance graduates. This means we will need more facilitators and allies come January!
