A weekly update from Washington Conference encouraging you
to get "Out & About" in ministry

July 16, 2019


This Week's Promise to Share

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

Isaiah 58:6-9, NIV

Aug. 3 :: Reverse It! Health Seminar

Join Mt. Tahoma Church on August 3 for Reverse It!, a health seminar with Dr. Helen!

Dr. Helen lost her parents to diet exacerbated illness. Her mother was only 59 when she said her last good bye suffering from the complications of type 2 diabetes. Her dad was lost to metastatic prostate cancer, but lived 11 years after his prognosis of having only six months to live.

Can this happen for you? Good news! Type 2 diabetes is reversible—so is heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity and even some forms of cancer and many other inflammatory diseases. If you or someone you love is suffering with any of these conditions, invite them out. Let’s have a conversation.

A Week Serving as Camp Pastor

It’s been an awesome time serving kids as camp pastor at Sunset Lake Camp this past week. It was especially a blessing to be able to listen to Ezekiel, a camper, share his testimony with us. Thank you David Yeagley and all the camp staff for running such a wonderful program and growing our young Adventists!
