Pity the Man . . .

In case you were looking for Lester in our last newsletter, I'm afraid it was me, Pam (Editor), taking leave of all common sense at the Polar Bear Plunge. The mental deficiency demonstrated in that act represents what Lester has cheerfully put up with for the past seven years.

Pity him!

My plunge into the city park swimming pool in fact symbolizes a new direction for me: stepping away from my long-distance involvement with Literacy Connexus, to immerse myself in my local church and community here in Copperas Cove.

I can't leave without expressing how much I have loved this ministry, all of the people connected with it, and the opportunity to serve in so many exciting ways. It has been rewarding, fun, challenging, educational, and spiritually stimulating. I wish every person could know this joy. 

The good news is, you can.
 I promise there is no comparison between diving into Literacy Connexus and falling into the folly mentioned above!

After looking over the Volunteer Opportunities, 
I ask you to please consider how your faith and skills 
might fit the needs of this important ministry.

NOW IS THE TIME
The people who live in darkness have seen a great light, and for those living in the shadowland of death, light has dawned. MATTHEW 4:16 (HCSB)

With so many to-dos, we often get caught up in busyness and forget to look beyond it. What would happen if we decided to look past the list and focus on something greater? This is what the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® is all about.
The missions field is all around us. According to statistics, 269 million people across North America do not know Christ, but hundreds of churches are closing their doors every year. Now is the time to act, and North American missionaries are through church planting and compassion ministries. 

exists to help every church take its next step in missions and encourage every believer to live on mission. Through your gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® and the Cooperative Program, NAMB supports more than 5,000 missionaries and more than 3,800 chaplains who serve in difficult places where 
the gospel is often not welcome.
