Finally We Meet!

A few years back you may remember a little missions program we implemented here at Friendship Bible Church called "To The Ends Of The Earth" (TTEOTE for short). It was an attempt to support a missions endeavor in every single nation of the earth, and it ended with that goal, as much as we were able to determine, reached.

We met Andrew Kohler through that program. Andrew is a church planting missionary in Castlebar, Ireland, and we exchanged some communications during that time, and even Skyped him into our missions conference that year.

But Andrew has never met FBC face to face, and we have never met him face to face… until this coming Lord's Day. Andrew, his wife Genesis, and his son Quinn, will join us for worship this coming Lord's Day at 9:30 AM. They will present their work in Ireland, as well as share from the Lord's Word. And there will be a "meet the missionary" lunch immediately following the worship service. We are in our summer schedule, meaning we get out a little earlier than usual, so it will be an early lunch. Bring a dish to pass if you can, and if you can't, just come anyway and meet Andrew and his family.

And always remember - You have FRIENDS at Friendship Bible Church!

I didn't promote this well, and so we have a very small number who signed up to bring a dish for the "Meet the Missionary" lunch this coming Lord's Day. If you can bring something to include in that lunch, it will be a big help. (If you can't bring something, come yourself anyway… there's always plenty to eat!)

And by the way, the main dish (chicken and jojos) is already provided, so side dishes / desserts are all that's needed. 

With The Lord

Join us in praying for the Egli family as they mourn the loss of Bud's brother Bobby this week. A note, text, call, or card of encouragement would be greatly appreciated right now, I'm sure.

Here are the details for Bob Egli's calling hours and funeral:

Hopkins Lawver Funeral Home 547 Canton Rd Akron, OH 44312
Sunday, July 9th calling hours from 2–5pm
Monday, July 10th services at the funeral home from noon–1pm with interment at Hillside Memorial Park immediately following.

The church will be providing a meal and time of fellowship for the family at 2:00. Please let our sister Trudy know if you are able to help with that effort.
