Phil Zarn’s Article

Phil Zarns – our missionary to Sweden and my friend – just had an article published in Relevant Magazine.   Phil is learning the Swede language, and this article will give you insight into what he is going through.  Check it out by clicking on http://www.relevantmagazine.com/god_article.php?id=7570

Each month our church sends financial support to Phil.    We are proud to support Phil and his wife Katja!

On Thursday, we will make our first presentation of the HAT program to a deserving teacher at Beech High School in Hendersonville.   HAT stands for Honor A Teacher.  Kim Driver is the visionary behind this program.    Students who attend The Church at Indian Lake nominated their favorite teacher, then we drew a name in service for a teacher to receive gift basket worth $500.   It will be great to give this away tomorrow.  If you are interested in bringing this program to you church, let me know and I’ll get you in touch with Kim.

Sunday’s Miracle

If you missed Sunday’s service, we had a very unique and powerful day.   After my message on Why Darfur Matters, Paul Jackson took the microphone, and he challenged the church to raise $12,000 for the “water solutions” project in Darfur TODAY.

After the service concluded, many people came to Paul and joined his offering to raise $8,800 on the spot.   In addition to that miraculous offering, another person offered to make up the difference to bring our total to $12,000!!!

We will be sending a $12,000 check to our missionaries this week so they can bring fresh water to a village in Darfur.  This will save lives, and lead people to Jesus.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this . . . Sunday was a dream come true for me!
