The White’s are here and settling in. Everyone has been very kind, patient, and encouraging while we awaited their arrival. Now they are here and we are looking forward to working with them as we glorify our Lord here in Daingerfield and the community. They are still awaiting for their furniture and things to arrive, which is expected on Thursday. The crate will be unloaded and set up by the company who is bringing the crate, but thanks to all who have mentioned helping in this endeavor. The elders met with Mark on Monday night, August 15th and discussed the working arrangement with Mark and Tim and the areas we want them to work on at the start. It was a very encouraging and uplifting meeting and we are looking forward to accomplishing many things for the Lord as we all work together for Him.
One of the areas we discussed is our Family Life Groups and it is a priority area. We are in the process of reorganizing the groups and reinforcing the nature of the groups which we pray will serve the church family well and bring us closer to one another as we fulfill the needs of the flock. Please pray for this effort and as Mark reminds us, Keep Fired UP!
A Reception for Norman and Janiece Miller
On December 18th we will be honoring Norman and Janiece Miller with a reception for the many years of service and dedication to this church and community. The reception begins at 4:30 PM, in the Fellowship Area. All those in our community are invited to join us for this reception. Norman and Janiece have touched the lives of many in our community and it is a joy to honor them in this simple reception for the impact they have had on this church family and community.
Due to health difficulties, Norman and Janiece have moved closer to their family in Greenville, Tx. Please pray they will feel good enough to travel and join us on December 18th.

Daingerfield Church of Christ
Our Mission goals have been steadily progressing and wanted to give just a brief report on the different areas we support.
Nathan & Laura – Tanzania
We are glad to have Nathan, Laura, Josiah and Anna Grace back safely with us in the states. The team they were involved with had some unexpected setbacks and it was deemed prudent that Nathan and his family return to the states. We were saddened that this work had to be left, but one thing we know. This world does not always go along with our plans and often we must make wise and prudent redirections, and sometimes wait for a better opportunity!
Rom 1:13 I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.
Ben Fulks – Ghana
Ben has recently returned from Ghana and will give a report sometime in the future. He has another trip scheduled later in the year, and he may combine these two reports into one after that trip. We look forward to hearing from him and rejoice that this work continues to go forward.
Kirk & Karen Israel – Castleton, Vermont
A group left June 17th and returned around the 25th….The helped with the remodeling of their new building and encouragement for the church there. We continue to support this work here in the United States and rejoice in the growth that is taking place.
Mark & Ju White – Brazil
As everyone knows there is a group going to Brazil to help and encourage the work we support in Brazil. Much preparation has taken place and some of our youth group along with parents and adults will be making this trip July 22-Aug. 2. Continue to pray for the success of this trip as well as their safety.
