Sunday, August 9th, at our 9:30 worship service, we will welcome Russell and Sarah Badgley, who have felt the call to serve in the mission field, Ecuador to be exact! They are members of Greenleaf Friends in Idaho and have 3 children Emma, Joe, & Ruth. Russell is gifted in problem solving & management skills which he has learned from being a professional land surveyor. Sarah is a licensed professional midwife. They are spending the next few months sharing their ministry and beginning to learn Spanish & training for the field. They are 46% funded and climbing! The goal is to have at least 500 prayer partners in order to go to Ecuador.

School Supply Drive  Many families in the local community cannot afford to provide school supplies for their children, we want to help! Below is the supplies list of items that we are collecting to share with students in need at Howard Elementary. Notice that some of the supplies are listed by their brand name, educators tell us that is because even though they may cost a little more, those brands provide better bang for the buck.  A collection box is located in the main hallway.
