I thank God for you and God’s gift of the Lord’s Day! I’m glad you are here. It’s going to be another good day!

Our Vision 3:16 Team is in Mexico right now. They are in the same time zone so they are probably in church. I think Nathan is preaching so pray for him. (I say “I think” because anything can happen on a Mission Trip!) They return Tuesday. Please continue to pray for all of them, and for the work of the kingdom being done there!

I can’t wait to hear all that God is doing there this week! I am writing this on Thursday and they had about 300 people at the first clinic! There is an evening service here on Sept. 10. We will hear about their trip then. Childcare will be available. More details are coming but put this on your calendar!

Since Nathan is in Mexico, Jack Belcher is leading music today. Thanks to Jack for being a great pinch-hitter. Afton Boone is our drummer. He is also in Mexico so my son Joseph is in from Manhattan, KS to play drums. Thanks to him for coming in.

Thank you also to everyone who worked quickly last week to mitigate damage to the children’s area. Joe Sanborn and Pastor Kirk are going to replumb the baptistry. And then we are going to commence to dunking some more folks!

Whoever stole summer should give it back! Wednesday night ministries start Aug. 23. You can pre-register your children for AWANA at our website which is westhaven.church. Student Ministry starts at 6:30 in the Train Station (south end of the building.) I teach Bible study in the worship center at 6:20. I hope to see you and your family!
