Day 9 The Adventure Begins

Crazy things have been going on in Baltimore the last few days. Fires, looting, attacks on authorities and innocents both.

One video this morning...

Day 4 The Adventure Begins

A recent Gallup Poll shows Oregon tied with 4 other states as the worst in the nation for church attendance. They polled about 2,400 people and found that only 24% said that they attend a church.

As we walked room to room and talked about the various ministries, it seemed a tad overwhelming. Are you ready for this? Will there be enough volunteers? It’s all pretty...
