GREAT BIG THANK YOU

Thank you!
I am just feeling very grateful today. I want to say thanks to all of you who have faithfully supported us in our ministry here through your prayers and gifts. I know you are following God's will and all, but for my part I am truly blessed to be where I am doing what I am doing.

NorthStar Students help plant a church?
Is that even possible? With God all things are possible. We've been planning our student summer camp in Challis, Idaho for several months now. It has taken an interesting turn. We had to idea to make it a ministry camp where the kids would go out during the day and do service projects in Challis. Well, this week some pastors from the churches that will be involved in the camp met and felt like Challis may be ripe for planting a church. So if all works out we will be the first step toward establishing a church in Challis. Please pray as we seek Gods will.

New Church in Post Falls?
Ok, so there's not a new church in Post Falls yet, but this summer we will have a church planting intern here with his family to look at the prospect of planting a church in Post Falls or somewhere else in the area. This is exciting because we feel like there is great need for healthy, growing, cooperating churches in this area. Actually, we have discovered that there are quite a number of churches, but very few of them are healthy, doctrinally sound, kingdom minded, and evangelical in regards to the Gospel. In fact, I would say that there are more churches that are a liability to the Kingdom than ones that are a benefit. If you listen to the history of churches in this town it would make you weep. And the legacy continues. Just this week we have heard that several churches have lost their pastor or other staff in unfortunate circumstances.

Anyway, that's why I'm excited about Benjamin, the intern, coming. Please pray that God will heal hurting churches in Coeur d'Alene and plant the seeds of new ones all over North Idaho.
