On Saturday evening, March 21, Neighborhood Assembly of God had their 2009 Missions Banquet. Our Keynote Speaker was Missionary Andy Raatz, missionary to Moldova.  Carol and I had the privilege of traveling to Moldova in October 2008 on a short term missions trip with Neighborhood Assembly.  What an awesome time it was.  You can read, and see all about it HERE.

Besides being blessed with a challenging message from Andy, on personal love for those we are serving, we were blessed by the music of Cissy Padget.  She is Helena’s own singer, song writer, and author.  We also heard from Tim Kern, our local missionary to the college campuses of Helena and Chi Alpha.  Jeff Larson gave us an update on past projects that we have begun in Moldova, and Craig Charlton was a superb Master of Ceremonies.

Andy, then spoke at our church services on Sunday.  We had a good time of prayer for him, his family, Moldova, and the Home of Hope.

Carol and I are preparing to go to Moldova in October 2008.  We are going with a team from our church – Neighborhood Assembly of God.  We are actually the second team going; as our first team went in May.  As we prepare, we ask you to keep us, our team, and our missionaries in prayer.  I put together a web page with information and about our preparations about the trip to Moldova.  See it HERE.

Our missionaries in Moldova are Andy and Nancy Raatz along with their children.  They have a web site with a lot of information, and Andy and Nancy have their own web logs (Blogs) that journal their journey in Moldova.  Here are those web sites.  Visit them to get ideas on how to pray for them.  John

View photos of our Missions Banquet

On April 12, our church had our first Missions Banquet. Our speaker was Ron Maddux; and he really encouraged us as we walk out our call to missions as a church. Ron Maddux has served as regional director for Northern Asia since 2001. We spoke live to Andy Raatz (using Skype and the Internet), one of our missionaries in Moldova. Our church is sending two teams of workers to Moldova this year. Carol and I will be (the Lord willing) going to Moldova in October. Please, pray that everything will come together for these trips. Plenty of pictures from our first Missions Banquet are HERE; and two videos of our Children’s Choir that performed during the evening are HERE. Enjoy
