Persistence

by Doug Bing, Washington Conference president, and administrative team

When I was a child, I looked forward to seeing the Christmas catalogs come in the mail.

My sister and I would sit for hours looking at all the latest and greatest toys that were featured in those glossy pages. We made our wish lists, and then began the process of persuading our parents with all the reasons that we needed those items. Sometimes our list was fruitful, and other times the ever present socks, pajamas and clothing items (that were never on the list) were the only thing that made it under the tree.

Luke 11 tells the story of a man who had one thing on his list: bread. And Jesus tells a series of stories to illustrate the one gift we are to continually ask for: the Holy Spirit.

If it is on your list to ask for, it is on His list to give.

Funding a Growth Spurt

We love to watch the children of our church grow in their faith, wisdom, and stature (just like Jesus in Luke 2:52).

In 2018, our Conference Ministries offering, as voted by local church representatives, will become the Washington Youth offering to benefit growing a new generation of Adventists through children’s ministry, Pathfinders/Adventurers, Sunset Lake Camp, youth ministry, young adult ministry, and Adventist Education. Give offline with your tithe & offering envelope, or online at washingtonconference.org/give or your local church website.

Thank you for helping instill Hope & Wholeness in a new generation of Adventists!
