We are currently at $90,669.00 with some members indicating they plan to contribute in the future. Your giving will allow us to continue to support many of the ten different mission areas that we have previously discussed. Since we did not reach our total goal, it will be necessary to make adjustments in some areas of our mission work, and we will inform you of these changes. As your elders, we pray that God will bless our efforts and bless you and your family. Thank you for your generous giving which proves our love for God and the souls of others. We love and appreciate you, Elders

YOUTH T-SHIRT ORDERS ARE DUE TODAY The Chance to Begin Again I have recently been reading a Reader’s Digest condensed biography of Thomas Edison. He was a re- markable man, a genius and a great inventor. I recall one story about him that I read in another source that told something of his positive attitude that is a great lesson for all of us. It was in December 1914. He had working for 10 years on a storage battery and this had greatly strained his finances. This particular evening spontaneous com- bustion had broken out in the film room. Within minutes all the packing compounds, celluloid for records and film, and other flammable goods were in flames. Fire compa- nies from eight surrounding towns arrived, but the heat was so intense and the water pressure so low that the attempt to douse the flames was futile. Everything was destroyed. Edison was 67. The damage done totaled more than two million dollars but his insurance on the building and its contents was for only $238,000 for the buildings were of concrete and considered to be fireproof. The inventor’s 24-year old son, Charles, searched frantically for his father. He finally found him, calmly watching the fire, his face glowing in the reflection, his white hair blowing in the wind. “My heart ached for him,” said Charles. “He was 67—no longer a young man—and everything was going up in flames. When he saw me, he shouted, ‘Charles, where’s your mother?’ When I told him I didn’t know, he said, ‘Find her. Bring her here. She will never see anything like this as long as she lives.’” The next morning, Edison looked at the ruins and said, “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God we can start anew.” Three weeks after the fire, Edison managed to deliver the first phonograph. Too many times we allow things of much smaller importance to discourage us to the point that we give up. We stop serving God and sit down to do nothing. How great it would be if all our mistakes could be burned up and we could start all over. Our sins are our great mis- takes and they can be removed and we can start over. In the latter chapters of the book of Zechariah we see the prophecies of the coming of the Messiah. In Zech 13:9 God says, “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.” God’s people will be refined as silver and gold in the fire and all their faults will be burned up. In Acts 22:16 Saul of Tarsus was told “And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.” Later Paul would write to the church at Corinth and tell them “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Cor. 5:17).” When one becomes a Christian all of his past mistakes (his sins) are removed so that he can begin again and like Edison we can truthfully say, “Thank God we can start anew.” VBS Please sign up in the foyer if you would like to help with VBS.
