Howdy Gang,

1.      The Spencers’ Wild West Show and Chuck Wagon Dinner last Saturday was a great success!  54 People (mostly all church members) attended this fun afternoon and evening, and all agreed it was an outstanding cowboy church event! Thanks to Ray and Barb Spencer for planning and hosting this event on their beautiful Victorian Country Inn’s back-forty. Thanks to Wade and Angel Monckton for their delicious Dutch oven cooking of ham and beans, with cornbread and sour dough bread.  They also had a tasty cowboy stew and a bunch of great desserts! Thanks to all the cowboy/cowgirl actors that robbed the people wagon as our folks were headed out to the chuck wagon and campfire.  All-in-all, it was just a great time of cowboy fun and Christian fellowship. (See photos on our Facebook page and website.) The event also raised $2,000 for our cowboy church building fund!  That was awesome!  Thanks, Ray and Barb, for all your hard work and innovation for the Lord and for the Cowboy Church!

 

2.      More good news! Thanks to Robert Phillips and David Reed, we now have a new 500 gallon propane tank set in place and a gas line run from it to the cowboy church building and hooked in to our new heating and cooling system.  They put all of this in place this week, so we are now ready for whatever Ol’ Man Winter wants to throw at us. On behalf of the entire cowboy church family, we say, “Thank You”, David and Robert, for volunteering your time and equipment to get this done. You guys rock!

 

3.      We still need some help with our Fellowship and Hospitality details, mostly for our Monday services.  If you would like to help for a month to provide the drinks and help with the clean-up after the fellowship time, talk to Linda Sharp to see what needs to be done.

 

4.       The Ladies are enjoying their Ladies’ Bible Study and the fellowship they are having at the Cowboy Church!  Their next session will be Wednesday, October 25th at 6 pm at the cowboy church.  All ladies are welcome to join in with this great Beth Moore study of 2 Timothy!

 

5.      I noticed on Facebook today that Gayle Owen, wife of Pastor Joey Owen of the “Because He Lives Cowboy Church” in New Bloomfield, asked that no one bring a dog until November 30th to the Timberline Stables where their church meets.  There is apparently a dog flu going around and their own Airedale pup got that flu and died from it.  It might be wise, for the sake of all our dogs, if we not bring any dogs to the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church until further notice. So leave your dogs home for now, if you would. The flu does not apparently affect horses..

 

Finally, We are sending up our prayers this week for the victims of yet another disaster in our country; the record fires in California, with the loss of over 3,500 buildings and homes and what likely will be many lost lives.  The loss of life to these horrendous fires could be more than all those lives lost in the recent hurricanes - combined.  Please pray for the victims, the exhausted firefighters, and those that are helping with the recovery.  As I write, those fires are still raging,

 

We have sent more than $600 in donations from our Cowboy Church Family to the Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief Organization to help them as they help families through these disasters.  They spent 6 weeks serving the folks in Texas City, Texas after Hurricane Harvey, serving over 160,000 meals, providing mobile shower units, helping with child care and much, much more. We salute them for their many hours of volunteer service in the name of the Lord! Thanks to all of you who gave to help us raise the $600 for their great work.

 

Have you ever seen anything like this before - one disaster after another? We sure have not.  Add to this the racial divide in our country, opiod drugs being out of control, the political rancor in our capital and state houses, the shameful behavior of the Hollywood moguls, and the-downward spiral of American culture, and “wars and rumor of wars”.  And can you believe it? Even the Boy Scouts of America have been infected by the pressure of political correctness and the darkness of our present culture. (I was a Boy Scout, but would not be today.)

 

So, please pray for our nation and world, and particularly for God’s lost sheep. Whatever your political persuasion might be, the fact is that the world is in a mess.  We Christians have to be wondering if God is beginning to withdraw the Holy Spirit from a world that has mostly turned away from Him. Is He allowing Satan to ramp-up his demonic hatred and destruction in the world and in our own country? Are these the signs that Jesus will be returning soon?  He promised He would return some day as King of kings and Lord of lords to clean-up this dark world and bring His Light to bear upon it.  Sharing the Good News that, “Jesus is the Savior of the world” with as many people as we can is our most urgent and important task in these trying times.

 

If you haven’t been to the Cowboy Church in a while, come on over and join us Sundays at 11 am and/or Mondays at 7 pm.  We’ll leave the lanterns on the gates for you and we’ll share the Light of the Word of God with you to encourage and give peace to your hearts!

God Bless and Happy Trails,

Pastor Dale and MaryAnn Larison c}:-{    Website www.gtthccc.com
