Books on Immigration

This Sunday (June 24) will be a big day at the library because we will be displaying both these books on immigration and books about how to have a personal Bible study, which you can read more about here. We also will have copies of the detailed FPC 2018-19 budget! Make sure to stop by and pick up a book or budget copy or both!

These books are catalogued in our online catalog and can be browsed here. Two books specifically recommended by Pastor Eric are Living by the Book by Howard G. Hendricks and What the Bible Is All About by Henrietta C. Mears. In the Fall, we will be getting more books on this subject. Make sure to stop by on Sunday and take a look at our selection!

Bridges of Love NW–Jobs for Life Program

The following story tells about the experience of a Bridges of Love NW mentor, Naomi W., who was working with a student.

“Over the last 16 weeks, I have watched you transition from homelessness and living in a shelter to a place you can call home. I have also witnessed unexpected suffering from the tremendous loss of your four-month-old son, Enoch. You remained determined to complete your tasks and fulfill your commitment to Jobs for Life in order to learn more about your passions and yourself, to develop your self-esteem, to value yourself more, and to finish what you started. I’ve seen your confidence grow. I’ve seen an increase in your willingness to stand up and share in front of the class and participate in small group interactions.

Let me encourage you. You are strong, and you are faithful. You have a high value and are a great treasure. I pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you into a fuller trust in the Lord so that you can experience His supernatural peace.

Bless you as you carry out what you started in Jobs for Life. May your motivation and confidence continue to be cultivated every step of the way. I pray that you find fulfillment and joy. I don’t want you to lose that because you are good at that, impacting all the individuals who cross your path and that the Lord brings into your life. You are loved, and I love you!”
