Washington State Mudslide Update



Bishop Knoblich writes:

Dear Church Family:

First, I want to say thank you for the outpouring of your love and prayers for those whose lives have literally been turned upside down.
It appears like the last person rescued was last Saturday when this immense landslide occurred.  
 For days, search teams have concentrated on rescue operations.  Unfortunately, these operations have turned now to recovery mode.  Our missing church member, Steve Hadaway still has not been found.  At this point there are over two dozen known fatalities and approximately 90 people still unaccounted for.

As you can imagine when a tragedy of this magnitude hits a small community of about 1300 people, it is devastating.  None the less, the community is pulling together and trying to do the best they can.  Our pastor and his wife in the Darrington area, Brother and Sister Alexander, are working hard ministering to people and are so thankful for the prayer support.  Please continue in prayer that our Lord can give the grace, peace, and strength to help in times like this.
 
Again, thank you for your loving concern and prayers.

Bishop Don Knoblich

Minister available for revivals

Here is a copy of a correspondence I received from Ray Ammons this morning. I have known him for about thirty years and have heard good reports all that time. If you would like to consider Ray to minister in your church, his contact information is below:

Bishop E.C. McKinley
Dear Brother,
I am sending you a synopsis of my ministry, and my desire to work in evangelism in your States.
I preached my first message at 12 years old.

I began weekend revivals at 14 and spent my 14th summer in revivals.  My wife and I were National Evangelists working with Elwood Matthews.  I have many years of experience in Revivals. We were pastors for 32 years.  I worked as a chaplain and counselor with juveniles locked up in prison for the last 10 years and evangelized on the weekend. 
I have retired from Kentucky state government and wish to evangelize. I wish to do so in your state/territory.
I believe my calling assignment from our Lord is to be a Demonstrator. I truly believe when I preach there will be a d…
