Ed Lewis sends his best to you. He and TK shared many updates at the CE National Celebration right here in our own auditorium last Sunday night. On a little sidenote, Ed Lewis has grown a goatee since the last time we saw him.

FUTURE SAILOR SANDOVAL (aka Joseph Sandoval) will be heading out to the Chicago area February 14th for his basic training and then advanced training/placement in his naval career. We were able to pray with him and for him in our service on January 29.

A group of our youth have been at Forest Home Christian Conference Center this weekend for the Willing Workers Weekend and are returning home as you read this (if you are reading this at the worship hour). Pray for their safe return home.

The first part of this past week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) I was at The Oaks Conference Center up near Lake Hughes meeting with our pastors and missionaries from this Southwestern region. Our own Bob Hetzler was part of the big group. Many people send their greetings to you, the Community Church family.

The leaders of our Fellowship Council met on Thursday and Friday in Seal Beach.

We received a note from Darlene Benson’s family the other day: ”Thank you for asking about my mom. She had her 91st birthday on January 3rd. She was happy and her health seems to be stable at the moment. She was pleased to have her quarterly perm and seems to be content.”

Whittier Area Churches are joining in a day of prayer this coming Saturday (February 11th) around the corner from us at the Salvation Army. This is known as the annual Whittier Area Prayer Summit. It begins at 7am and continues through 6pm. Come anytime for a little bit or longer (I will be there to pray around 2:00pm). Location is 7926 S. Pickering. More info at www.whittierareaprayersummit.com plus there are flyers at the Information Center for you to get that explains the schedule of prayer for the day. I’ve also set a few invite cards outdoor you to invite someone to come with you to the time of prayer. There are always people who are open to prayer who are not at your place of faith in our Lord.
