Hello FAITH Riders,
I’m sure that all of us who attended the FANTASTIC FAITH Riders Commissioning Service at the First Baptist Church in Forsyth, MO this past Sunday all agree that this was a real Blessing!! We had about 19 of our NWA Chapter members there on 10 motorcycles and 3 cars!! After an awesome main service at the Church, the members of the new Forsyth Chapter, the Pastor (Dr. Justin Gates), and our NWA Chapter all had a wonderful lunch together followed by the Commissioning Service. Pastor Gates gave a short history how their Church came to this point of starting their Chapter. Jeff Hairston then did a great job in speaking to the whole group about the history of our NWA Chapter, our ministry projects, and stories about some of our members. He gave the new Chapter guidance as to what to expect in upcoming months and challenged them to be strong when satan attacks. Near the end of this Commissioning Service, Jeff presented the new Chapter with their official plaque. This was a very touching service and we all got to know our new FAITH Rider brothers and sisters in Forsyth, MO a lot better. Hopefully we can have some joint Chapter activities and rides in the future!
If you have already looked at our website at http://www.nwafaithriders.com/, you will know that this Thursday’s gathering/dinner will be at the Western Sizzling Steak House in Springdale again. Hopefully you can make it! Also, you will see a new photo posted on the website that shows our Chapter presenting a check to Restoration Village. Very cool. More photos to come soon!!
Please continue to lift up Ethel’s (Burl’s friend) sister: Barbara who is in the hospital in Joplin, MO. Yesterday (Tuesday) they removed all life support systems from her, and she continues to grow weaker. Please pray for Ethel, Burl, and their whole family during this tough time.
Have a great rest of the week!
