2013 Banquet – “Discovering God’s Plan for YOU”
You are invited to attend the annual RBM Ministries Spring Banquet for Van Buren and Berrien Counties. It will be held at the Hartford Federated Church, 65418 Red Arrow Hwy, Tues., Mar. 26 at 6:30 p.m. As always there will be a delicious meal for which a free-will offering will be taken to cover expenses and assist in the work of RBM Ministries. A multi-media presentation will be given as well as a report on the ministry and a challenge from God’s Word. Please contact us for a reservation by using the contact page. It would be very helpful to know who is coming by Monday, March 18. Why not invite your pastor or someone new to come with you?
Release Time Bible Classes
Classes are going well. I was able to hold 15 Released Time Bible Classes in January with 299 students and 41 Adult helpers. 6 classes were cancelled for snow/ice. There would have been about another 75 students involved if those 6 classes had been held. In February we told the story Zachæus. Many children have raised their hands to ask prayer for salvation. The bible verse was Luke 19:10 “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
The bus is functioning well though I have begun to have some problems starting it on these cold mornings. It seems that I will have to replace the batteries before long.
Cherie & I have been working though the health insurance maze. At the end of 2012 RBM Ministries did not have enough people on our group health plan to continue being a group. We were required to find an individual policy. Since both Cherie and I have “pre-existing” conditions (her with bi-polar, me with a possible heart murmur) we find it necessary to go with only one company which is quite expensive. Even then it is difficult to decipher the language on what it covers. Please pray that we will have wisdom in this area.
Thank you for your concern and support for the ministry of RBM. Please pray for those children who desire to know Jesus Christ and follow Him.
Dean & Cherie Brown
