Dear Friends and Members of Emmanuel Reformed Church,

This Sunday is Ecumenical Sunday and many of our prayers come from the Worldwide Church.  In addtion, Linda Dulaney and I have cooked up a little ‘surprise’ from the German Protestant church for you all.  We are also collecting the Children’s Noisy Collection this week for a Ugandan Orphanage called Malayka House.  You can watch a video of the story of Malayka House here.  

As you may have already heard, I’ve been chosen to be one of the Penn West Ambassadors to the Philippines in the late spring.  To those of you who have already given, thank you!  If you would like to donate, you can find more information at the Penn West Webpage under the “In-Flight” Program at  http://www.pennwest.org/.  You can send a check to the Conference Directly making it out to “The Penn West Conference”and writing “In-Flight” in the memo line.  The address is:inflight november
