Looking Forward

Joy Wilson

What are you looking forward to in 2019? I have really been giving a lot of thought to this upcoming year. What do I need to be intentional about to fulfill all that God has for me?
The theme for 2019: Pursue
The scripture, Proverbs 21:21, has been resonating with me for this year:

He who pursues (earnestly seeks) righteousness (right standing with God) and love, finds life, prosperity and honor.

One thing I know is that I want to be passionate and totally committed to Proverbs 21:21. I want to continue to grow in my personal intimate relationship with the Lord. There are so many things that always need my attention or that I could pursue, but let me encourage all of us to pursue a more personal and intimate relationship with the Lord in 2019.
What to look forward to?
February: Connection Tour. Always a great time to see you at these events.
March 1-2: Oregon Garden Getaway. Make sure you have secured your spot. Oregon Garden Getaway is for women in all walks of ministry life. It’s an opportunity to hit “pause” on all that life demands for two days of refreshing, relaxing and relating to other women who walk similar paths to you. It’s inspiring to sit and hear new perspectives on ministry and to be encouraged by others. Take time today to register.
April 30: Summit Breakfast with Missionary Pat Beiler.
Plan now to attend these great events that are planned with you in mind.
Inspire Conference: Raise $5,000 to enable Vienna Christian Center to do this outreach to Europe. November 2019. Money needs to be raised by August.
Ecuador Trip: Raise $7,500 for a weekend retreat for pastors wives in the Cuenca area, a Tim Tebow event that our own missionary Laurel Ellis is asking us to help raise funds to enable them to help children with disabilities.
These are two areas I’m asking you to ask your Women’s Ministries to help us. Please let them know these needs. I believe the women in the Oregon Ministry Network can help this become a reality. Please let me know how you are willing to help. Maybe set a couple Sundays where you take a dollar offering.
2019 is going to be a great year as we pursue all God is challenging us to do and be a part of.
