As I write this, we are working to take care of all the details involved in canceling our Executive Council meetings due to the hurricane that is going to hit the coast and move inland to effect Charlotte Thursday and Friday. Let me tell you that canceling an event does not lessen the amount of work, but makes it much harder. Please be in prayer for our churches in the Wilmington area and eastward. They are expecting major weather for the next few days and even in Charlotte the airports may be affected. We love the Executive Council members, but did not want to see them trapped in Charlotte through the weekend.

A Ministry Update from Ploy:

Greetings from Christian Mission Naratchakwai, Thailand.

It is good to worship God every Sunday. We serve the Lord and do many activities together. God allows us to meet each other and know a lot of friends in Jesus Christ. We are very pleased to serve the Lord forever.

Serving as the Executive Director of ACGC for the last three years, I have gained a great respect for the relationship of ACGC with regions, conferences, churches and individuals. It has become clear to me that it is important to communicate not just what is happening but also the heart, purpose and needs related to our ministries. As we move forward with our strategic plan, we realize the need to give people opportunities for partnership and ownership in what is happening in Advent Christian ministries around the world. One of the ways you can become a partner in this important kingdom work is by becoming a Monthly Ministry Partner (MMP). Monthly Ministry Partners are people who share our passion to reach a lost world with the message of a soon returning Savior.
