GOOD NEWS DAY OUTREACH
GOOD NEWS DAY— On Saturday, April 4 Christ Cares encouraged & empowered churches to share God’s Love on the day before Easter. We had nearly 100 attend from about a dozen churches. There was a prayer breakfast, a challenge on evangelism, and then we passed out witnessing material & everyone was encouraged to visit the homes near their church with a gospel witness & invitation to Easter Services. One church covered over 200 homes!

THANK YOU CRETE CHURCH
For donating your choir robes - we passed them along to the Roseland Christian R e f o r m ed Church & they were very grateful. We also appreciate all the snacks that the kids collected for us during VBS. This helps us immensely in our efforts to share the love of God to children on a weekly basis.

Ministry Spotlight - East Hazel Crest Bible Church
One of the ministries we partner with is East Hazel Crest Bible Church. On Wednesday nights during the school year we bring a van load of children for their “Olympian” Program. This is a wonderful program that includes Bible Lessons, Scripture Memorization, Service Projects and fun activities. The children also loved their VBS program. EHCBC also hosted our GOOD NEWS DAY .

For updates, pictures & video of recent activities, and prayer requests.     

The Guzaitis & Bult families moved to Texas. They were key volunteers for our ministry, involved in our outreach to the Homeless Shelter, the monthly men’s Bible Study etc. Pray that the Lord will bless them with just the right new church home. Grieving: the Chinese Church I have been preaching at the last 20+ years lost a wonderful leader & role model. Mr. Yang was 91 years old.

Also please pray for Lavetta, who faithfully supports many of our activities—her son was murdered.

  

Gallilee Baptist Church, as I help them write a constitution & as they seek a pastor. Rev. Sam Williams, a board member & urban minister has some special needs. Our Board of Directors has asked me to seek counseling for Post Traumatic Stress due to my unique ministry history. Pray for God’s direction.

Pray that I will stay close to the Lord, do His Will, & be empowered to share His Love. Please pray for my girls - Lisa, Katie, Lexi - her new husband David & the baby on the way.
