Until that time, our goal for this section of the bulletin is to spot- light our current mission works. Please pray for our first two mission works to be featured. Jefferson Christian Academy (JCA). JCA was established to serve Christian families and Churches of Christ. Regardless of whether our Chris- tian families decide to enroll their children in this private Christian school, churches can agree that the Academy’s influence is needed in our area. Before Covid-19 only 20 percent of the student body at JCA was comprised of children who attend Churches of Christ. This makes JCA an excellent opportunity for evangelism. All students are required to attend chapel every morning and at least one Bible class each day. They attend classes taught by Christian teachers who are free to discuss the Bible without any interference from the government. Just think of the potential for Christ Deerfoot provides $12000 annually toward the Bible Teacher at Jefferson Christian Academy The Kizer Family in Charlotte North Carolina The first-century church exploded in growth because the believers were dispersed throughout Judea and Samaria (Acts 8:1). It was a result of the church’s enemies unknowingly scattering Gospel seeds in the wind where it took root and grew. Church-planting can take a dramatic form among those who are looking for community. For this reason, our mission is to establish three, bilingual congregations among Hispanic im- migrants in the Charlotte North Carolina area. My family arrived in mid-2019, and our experience can be defined in two ways: pre-quarantine and quaran- tine. Before the quarantine, we developed our vision and strategy and studied with over 70 active students on a weekly basis. We designed a launch strategy that would have inaugurated on April 5, and on March 8th , days before the quarantine began, we had over 50 present for a church-wide picnic. During the quarantine, we’ve conducted bi-weekly Zoom studies, and have helped over 20 families with relief aid. We’ve worked extensively to provide more content on our Facebook page and church website. We’re preparing to meet for worship, beginning June 21st , outdoors in a reserved area. We’ve experienced first-hand that our community is very receptive. They’re searching for a relationship with Jesus and a spiritual family. Please pray for this essential work of church-planting in the Charlotte area In Him, Barton Kizer Ourweeklyshow,Plant&Water,isnowavail- able.YoucanwatchRichardandJohnathan everyWednesdayonourChurchofChrist Facebookpage.Youcanwatchorlistentothe showonyoursmartphone,tablet,orcomputer.

The locust, when working alone, is weak but becomes a powerful force in nature when they all work together. The Lord has used them to punish those who were living in rebellion to His will. The church needs to learn this les- son and realize the need for working together for when we are divided we cannot succeed. Division keeps peo- ple from obeying the gospel. Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthian brethren to correct the beginning of divi- sion when some were claiming “I am of Paul,” “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Apollos.” Paul told them, “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase” (1 Cor. 3:6). Paul gives himself and Apollos as an example of how by their cooperating in their work together with God they were able to accomplish a great work. The church here at Deerfoot by continuing to work together with one another and with God can accomplish great things. The final of the four creatures mention in Proverbs 30:28 (in the King James Version) is the spider. “The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.” From the spider there are two valuable les- sons we Christians need to learn. First is the simple fact that spiders are found in kings’ houses. They are found everywhere, from the humblest hut of the poor to the greatest mansions of kings. Like the spider we need to go into every home from the king’s palace to the peas- ant’s hut with the gospel of Christ. Jesus has com- manded us to “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mk. 16:15). Every indi- vidual has the right and the need to hear the gospel and we have the responsibility to see that this happens. A second lesson we need to learn from the spider is the fact that it is not easily discouraged. Have you ever taken a broom and destroyed the web in a corner of your house? If so you probably noticed that in a day or two the spider rebuilds it. It matters not how often you may de- stroy the web the spider will rebuild it. The only way to prevent the spider from rebuilding it is to kill the spider. It ought to be the same with Christians. The only way for the world to stop us is to kill us. When the apostles began preaching the gospel they began to be persecuted. Initially they were arrested (Acts 4:3); they were threatened (4:17, 21); they were put into prison but without violence to them (Acts 5:17, 18, 26); and they were beaten (Acts 5:40). The action of their enemies escalated from threats to beatings but without affect. But finally, the Jews who opposed them sought their death. In Acts the sixth chapter Stephan was arrested and brought before the council. After a lengthy testimony of the history of the Jews and God’s dealings with them, Stephan concluded by charging them with resisting the Holy Spirit. The result was that Stephan was cast out of the city and stoned to death (Acts 7:58-60). After this a great persecution arose against the church. The Christians learned from the spider to is to persevere and not given up and the world learned that the only way to stop Christians from proclaiming the gospel was to kill them.
