Pastor's Message

 

 

Thank You, Laura

Steve Ranney, Pastor

 

As many of you know, Ashley and Andy have welcomed their son, Flynn, into the world.  Mother, son and father are doing well.  We are thrilled for them and for us.  As Ashley is away on maternity leave, bonding with Flynn and recovering, God has blessed us with another young woman to care for our youth.  Her name is Laura Van Druten.  She is a recent graduate of Whittier College and was a leader in CRU (a Christian campus ministry formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ).  She has been a real blessing to our youth in Ashley’s absence. We are grateful to God and Dr. Joe Price for bringing us together for this summer.  She will be with us until Ashley returns in mid-July.

 

When Laura completes her service with us, she will be moving on to a new and even more exciting adventure. She will be joining the CRU staff for a year. During this year, she will be going overseas to share the Good News about Jesus in another land.  She will do this by building relationships and sharing her faith as she is given opportunity. She is very excited to give the next year of her life in service to Christ in this way.  In her spare time, she is raising financial support to make this happen.  If you would like to support her in this endeavor (the Mission Committee has already met with her and has invested in her work), I would encourage you to give her a call and let her share her passion with you.  Her number is 951-505-7483.  As she goes, I would encourage each of us to remember to pray for Laura throughout the next year.  It is because twelve men (the eleven disciples and Paul) gave their lives in service to Christ and went out to share the Good News that we know the joy of a relationship with Christ.  I, for one, am excited about what God will do in and through Laura, not only this summer with our youth, but over the next year.  Thank you Laura for sharing your gifts with us and being willing to go to a new land to let God use you there.  Vaya Con Dios.
