It's just 3 weeks until our annual Women's Conference! I've been asked to explain "Experiential Learning". It's learning by experiencing. Instead of being told about what refugees face, a simple exercise will help us experience some of what refugees go through. We'll also hear directly (through video) from Lorna Bius in Clarkston, GA and Janis Walton serving in Haiti to help us know more about ministering with refugees and victims of natural disasters. Registering for the women's conference is not required but is greatly appreciated to help us prepare. https://uisbc.org/?ff_landing=44
This partnership is the beginning of lasting bond between churches in Northern and Southeastern Utah and Northwest Georgia. If you want to know more about how your church can participate in church to church partnerships, contact Gary McKean on our staff.
It is sad to report from Whispering Pines Baptist Association that two of their pastors have gone home to the Lord in the past week and a half. Please pray for Whispering Pines Association's leadership and for Associational Director of Missions, Lee Mowery, as he recovers from COVID and ministers to both churches and the pastors in the other churches. Whispering Pines is a rural association with 10 churches. Pastor Bill Horn was a long time pastor (29 years) at the oldest Baptist Church in Idaho, started in 1887 on Christmas Day by Rev. J.B. York. Pastor David Hunt had been pastor of Pine Ridge Baptist Church nearly eight years.
Death of Pastor David Hunt, October 7
It is with a heavy heart and mixed emotions that I inform you of the passing of Pastor David Hunt, of the Pine Ridge church in Kamiah. He went home to be with the Lord at 6:10 this evening. Please remember his wife, Ruth, his family, and the Pine Ridge Baptist Church in your prayers. We will let everyone know what arrangements are made when we have that information.
Death of Pastor Bill Horn, September 26
It is with mixed emotions that I inform everyone that Pastor Bill Horn of FBC Clearwater was called home this morning. We will sorely miss him and the ministry he did so well. Please remember Nelda and Bill’s family and the Clearwater church in your prayers.
*Services will be held Saturday, October 30.
