Pastor Tom (Martha) Albaugh reports that encouraging things are happening at Redeemer OP Mission, saying, “our church is blessed”. About 40 people, including one couple from the neighborhood, attended the recent Oceans of Emotions conference. A family coming to the area from another OP church has intentionally located in the neighborhood of the church. A sequel to last year’s successful hot dog bash is planned outside the building the church rents, and members are encouraged to invite friends to two picnics to be held in a local park. Pray that God will bless these and other efforts by calling to himself people from the neighborhood. Five new communicant members and five new baptized members are expected to be added by fall. Praise God for diaconal work that is being done among the members of the congregation, and pray for the training of local officers.
