2009 Year End Reflections

Wow!! We're in the middle of December already. It seems this year has gone by like a whirlwind. As a whirlwind does, it has moved things out of their comfortable places thus requiring a repositioning. That's where we're headed in 2010.

In 2009 Missions had a successful trip to Haiti where we expanded a lot of our programs as mentioned in our September blog. We are repositioning ourselves for 2010 to do a minimum of two trips to Haiti. Trip #1 is April 1-10, 2010. Our focus will be on women's ministry as well as doing a musician, praise and worship workshop. Our minister of music, Georgia and several women from our choir will conduct this although we may have one dynamic brother from the choir since there are young male singing groups at the church in Haiti. The head of our Women's Dept. is one of those women but will also head up the women's ministry outreach on this trip. A few other women including myself will also participate. Our Senior Pastor Brown and Assoc. Pastor Anderson will also be going.

Trip #2 is July 21-31, 2010. Our expanded sports camps will take place along with youth forums. First time missionary teens and adults will be encouraged to go on this trip.

Evangelism outreach in 2009 consisted of door to door Tribe outreach throughout Vallejo. While there was some measure of successful witnessing and soul winning, we are repositioning our evangelistic efforts for 2010. Stay tuned because the final details are being worked out before we announce it but I will say many will be blessed and have an opportunity to be a blessing.

Let us end this year celebrating the faithfulness of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Let us rededicate ourselves afresh by totalling committing to do the will of God. I know He will expand us far beyond what we even thought or imagined until we are in the position that He can use us in. That position is found outside of our comfort zone but it's a good place.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Ollie Dixon
Associate Pastor
