“So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went…when they arrived…they proclaimed the word of God.” Acts 13:4-5
Even while the“Turkey Team” prepares to leave this Sunday, God is expanding their ministry opportunities.
Doug Vaughn reported today that their Team was informed of a special ministry of Grace Baptist Fellowship (Lynden) called “Bonnie Blankets.” This ministry is to honor Bonnie Penner Witherall, who was martyred while serving with her husband as OM missionaries in the Muslim city of Sidon, Lebanon. Bonnie’s parents are Lynden residents.
These blankets are made for impoverished mothers with babies and young children and are shipped all over the world. Each blanket comes with a tag that tells Bonnie’s testimony and the desire that each recipient would come to faith in Christ.
Doug received a call this morning (Sept. 5th) informing the team that a group of ladies are working diligently to fill three pieces of luggage with blankets for the refugees to whom they will be ministering while in Turkey. The Ladies are very encouraged that the Team will be bringing these blankets to refugees next week.
Please pray for those refugees who will be receiving these blankets.
