Thank you all for your coveted prayers! We successfully got in and out without any problems on our recent mission’s trip to one communist country. Also, the team saw nearly 75,000 souls make decisions for Christ last year! Glory to God!! We were hoping for 1,000,000 souls saved, 1,000 church plants and 100 churches built by 2020. We came up a little short but are believing to reach it soon. Since the inception of the ministry, we have witnessed 915,000+ souls saved, planted over 700 house churches (discipleship groups), and are in the process of building our 58th church. It will take a little longer to fulfill the vision, but we’ll get there.  🙂  Keep believing God with us as the team marches forward. 

The Bridges or Life Ministry banquet is coming up on Sunday, March 22nd.  It will be held in the Fellowship Hall of Christian Assembly Church – 6421 Tuscarawas Road, Industry, PA @ 11:45a, immediately following the morning worship service. If you can make it, please RSVP to 724-371-7720 and let us know your name and how many will be attending. If you attend another church, please be faithful to worship at your own local church and then please join us afterwards if you are able. We plan to share reports from the field this past year and where we are hoping to head in the near future. We will be serving lunch and have a few items to give away. Thank-you again for all you do; we’d just like to thank our sponsors in person.

There are three open mission trips this summer that will be offered as well.  The Appalachian Trip to southern WV will be the 21st of June through the 26th of June. Cost is $675 for the trip if you are joining us in the rented van and $600 if you are providing your own transportation. Also, the Iceland trip will be July 13th – 22nd. The team will travel to Reykjavik, Iceland and then bus over to our location about an hour and 1/2 outside of the city. We will work during the days with other Christians there in helping them to build a convention center / outreach center. At night, the team will go out and evangelize in the local communities. The last day and 1/2 will be sight seeing. There will be an opportunity to tour a glacier which will cost approximately $400 to $500 extra.  The cost for that trip is $2200. Please notify us ASAP if you plan on attending either trip.  The last mission trip is back to the communist country. The dates have not been finalized but that trip will be late summer / early fall.  However, if you’d like to attend, please let us know. 

The ministry will be offering a youth/young adult internship this summer for young people between the ages of (14-24) in our area. We will ask them to meet us at Christian Assembly Church in Industry, PA twice a week by 9a. There will be a time of prayer and devotion and then we will break out to go and serve in the community or church together.  If you are a youth/young adult or you are the parent, please consider “Giving Your Summer to God” or encouraging your young person to “Give Their Summer to God”.  We encourage you to allow God to move / inspire you to do great things, develop your leadership skills in the church and see where God can take you. 

Thanks again to all of our sponsors! We pray for God’s richest blessings to be upon you as you continue to carry out God’s plans for your lives throughout 2020. 

Do something great for God! We dare you!
