Dear families in Christ,
Our Pacific Northwest Annual Conference held with the theme of “Restoring Sacred Circle” to enrich the relationship with Native Americans from June 24 to 27 at the Tri-City Convention Center. It was a well-organized, joyful, inspirational, visional and celebratory conference; thank you for your prayers and support, special thanks to our sewing ladies for making baby quilts to give children at the risk. Thanks a lot to Kay Foss for being with me during the gathering and for the message she delivered on June 28th.
Many of you know how much I appreciate the freedom we have in our beautiful country, and I would like to remind all of us about The Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
And the Liberty Bell: “The Liberty Bell proclaims liberty through all the land and to all the inhabitants thereof. – This inscription engraved on the Liberty Bell in 1753 is taken from Leviticus 25:10.”
Well, August comes soon...when you enjoy fishing on the boat or at shore, give praises to our Lord for HIS providence; when you gather with your family members and friends, may laughter and food enrich your relationship through God’s love; when you stop by any church to worship God somewhere, please remember: bring me a copy of their church bulletin to share. Enjoy this wonderful summer!
