I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Lawrences called to California....

We are delighted that our dear brother and sister, Bernie & Pauline, will be expanding our family territory into the California conference, but we in the Comox Valley are also sorry to lose them over the next year. They are officially our prayer family for this week, but we want you to keep them on your prayer list for the next year so that they return to us healthy and hearty and glad to be home again!

We had an amazing turn-out at Church today... 54 souls filled the sanctuary and most stayed for the fellowship dinner that followed. No special occasion, just the way God co-ordinates these things. Trevor and his wife and two small children visited from Portage, Manitoba, and Linda and Murray were there from Port Hardy, just to name a few.

After the fellowship dinner a few of us met for the regular run of 'soup and salvation'. Pastor Cote, Daniel, Ed & Gerhard went out into the community while the others of us stayed back to pray. We do this outreach every two weeks following the fellowship meal. We have a goal to testify about the love of Jesus to at least 1,000 people in our community over the coming year through this scheduled event and through other means.

Ruth and Peter Fritz came in for the meal, having first attended Church in Campbell River. Ruth brought in some of her garden's bounty to distribute to many grateful receivers: cucumbers, kale, squash, and even a zucchini! Thanks again Ruth!

COMING UP: Janet and Lorna are going to be baptized on August 25th! Praise the Lord!
