Join me for the CE National Celebration today at 6pm at Grace Church in Norwalk.  This is one of those times we will have Ed and TK standing side by side speaking which doesn't happen too often. Some of us will meet here then head out to the celebration. Speak with me if you need transportation. If you attend you may hear both Claudia and myself talk a few moments about you and how proud we are of you folks.

Tomorrow, January 27th, I will be joining many of you in the memorial service for Ed Ramos.  I will then be heading out with other pastors, missionaries and church leaders from this Southwest area of the country for several days of prayer and study in the Scriptures (up near Lake Hughes).  We call this gathering the SOUTHWEST FOCUS RETREAT as there are similar retreats held in various regions of the United States. Pray for us in our time together. Both Bob Hetzler and Kyle Cherryholmes will also be attending from our church family. Our theme this year is SHAPING THE FUTURE, part 2.

The second part of this week I will be participating in our Fellowship Council meeting that will be held in Seal Beach, CA. This group gives oversight and direction to our various Grace Brethren ministries around the world. One of the treats is dinner at Walt’s Wharf.

Derek Newton enlisted in the United States Army. We plan to have him share with us on February 1.

Some of you have heard Kyle Cherryholmes is heading out to Ireland with Youth With A Mission in March. More details soon.

Remember, Walking in the Word will not meet tonight. It resumes next Sunday.

As we went to press our friend, Clark Miller, is still being treated at Presbyterian Hospital.

God’s best to you,

Pastor Richard
