If you are not yet involved in Connection, check the map in the foyer for groups that meet or call the church office. If you cannot connect with others due to scheduling issues, then please consider taking some time to ponder the questions below on your own. The goal of Connection is meeting with other believers, looking to the Word for answers, building each other up in the Lord and growing in our relationships with one another. Please contact your flock elder or the church office if you are not yet “connected” and interested in either finding or starting a group. May the Lord richly bless our “connection” and may we honor Him in our fellowship together around His Word! TBC CONNECTION - JULY 5, 2015 Acts 3, Romans 1:1-6, Acts 17:22-34 Discussion Questions 1.

We will meet in the Lighthouse Flock Room at 9:00 a.m., enjoy a devotion, get a few conversation ideas, and make a simple gift. At 10:00 a.m. we will depart to deliver our gifts, and be finished by 11:00 a.m. This is a great opportunity to share in ministry with your daughters. Don’t have a daughter who can attend? Bring a friend or come alone, and we will send you with someone to visit. Please RSVP to Precious Adams by Monday, July 13th, so we will know how many gifts we will need to make and how many visits to schedule. This might develop a friendship that would result in follow-up visits. Don’t miss this opportunity to minister and teach your daughters to minister. We would like to ask for a $2 donation per person to help with the cost of the gifts. Got Camel's Milk? This month I got to meet the camel that I “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows . . .” James 1:27 Thank You—The Bartlett Family Dear Tulsa Bible Church Family, Your demonstration of love through the beautiful basket of flowers at Mom’s service was greatly appreciated. We are so thankful also, for making the reception after the service so special. We recognize there was lots of coordination and effort provided by Tulsa Bible friends of mom. She lived a full and wonderful life. She will be missed, but we celebrate her Heavenly “home-going.” Your support and helpfulness is a blessing for which we are grateful. Lovingly, The Bartlett Family Kyle and Vanessa Jones In His Image, Kapsowar, Kenya Africa bought from a patient awhile back to help him pay his hospital bill and yes she had a baby! It may sound strange to us in the west, but camel's milk is quite a delicacy to the Pokot so guess what our patients at the clinic are getting these days? Tea with camel's milk! What a fun blessing that came out of a desire to help a needy patient get home. The Pokot clinic is going very well and we are hoping to finish the registration process this week which will allow us to start taking patients that have the national insurance which covers their inpatient bills and maternity delivery cost. We pray this will really help the Pokot to be able to better access the facility. The school project is coming along great thanks to many people's generous donations so thank you. We are looking at the final designs and hope to break ground before the end of the month. The next school year starts in January so we hope to start by then. I went to visit the Ministry of Education department last week and they were very encouraging. Back in Kapsowar things are also going quite well. We love our work at the hospital which includes teaching medical students from around the world as well as the Kenyan nurses and nursing students. Vanessa also has quite a ministry in our home with an open door policy and good home cooking that welcomes them all. Thank you again for what a great blessing you are to our family and feel free to contact me by email if you have any questions or would like more details.
