Paul Barnhardt, John Fitzpatrick, Jerry Jennings, Bill Lavery and Joel Portman took part in ministry and the Bible Reading (John 13). Profitable ministry touched on the laver and the importance of the “washing of the Word,” learning as much as we can about our Savior, following His example, appreciating why God has chosen to establish each assembly, maintaining and strengthening the house of God, being able to overcome the challenges that we face as a gathering in these last days, and so much more. A very warm note of thanks is extended to all who came, helped and supported.
Phoenix: The Orangewood assembly continues their series of short Saturday night devotionals via Zoom on “The Person and Work of Our Lord Jesus Christ” to help believers prepare for worship on the Lord’s Day.

Battle Creek: Venezuela Relief Fund: Conditions in Venezuela continue to be very challenging in various regards. Food is now available but only the rich can afford the costs of a balanced diet. The majority can only afford the very basic of foods and are unable to purchase foods with higher protein and nutritional values. VRF, going forward, will now purchase most food in the country, as shipping from the USA is now being taxed at 30% and makes it more expensive than purchasing in the country. Also, we will be purchasing a much greater proportion of the food than planting and producing locally because of much higher risks involved in successfully concluding a planting, growing and harvesting cycle. The uncertainty of being able to obtain fuel, fertilizer and other materials needed in the process has driven us to this decision. Medical help is still being supplied as the Lord provides and the believers are very grateful when help is available.
Hickory: The assembly held a community outreach on Saturday, October 21, by having a booth at the Apple Festival in the nearby town of Taylorsville. They gave out laminated texts, fridge magnets and bookmarks in both English and Spanish. Mike Knox held a week of ministry meetings October 23-27.
Akron: The believers greatly appreciated the visit of John See as he visited a number of the Ohio assemblies in October. His report on the Lord’s work in Malaysia and his help in presenting practical ministry and clear gospel messages were an encouragement and a blessing to the believers.
Juárez: As of November 4, the assembly was in their third week of gospel meetings in the hall. Interest from the community has been encouraging thus far.
Hermosillo: In October, the assembly appreciated a weekend visit from Philip and Beni Moore (Hickory, NC). Philip gave needed and practical teaching on biblical principles regarding finances in the life of the believer.

Cancún: The assembly evangelised the area surrounding the hall, delivering invitations to a gospel series that began October 22 with David Cadenas and Timothy Turkington. The attendance of unsaved, including several new contacts, was very encouraging.
