Isaiah 45:5  "I am the Lord and there is no other.  Besides me, there is no God..."

This was one of the memory verses the children learned in 5-Day Club this summer.  With all that is happening in the world today, isn't it good to know that there is One True God that we can depend on and trust in, through good times and through bad times.

Praise God with us:
1.  Summer ministry is done for another year.  We are still collecting all of the enrollment sheets and statistical information.  6 weeks of ministry, 25 5-Day Clubs, 2 Fairs, 1 Festival, 4 summer missionaries, 25+ hosts/hostesses, 3 staff, 1 volunteer staff; many children taught!
2.  Many miles were traveled this summer by the staff to make sure summer missionaries were at the clubs they were scheduled to teach.
3.  There is a potential for more clubs in Livingston County next summer because of the 2 clubs that were held there this summer.
4.  We are so thankful for Korie, Alex, Madison, and Storm (our 4 summer missionaries) who were so faithful to teach when they were scheduled and to do a great job.  Marilyn Frazee helped in teaching some clubs when it was needed.  The staff also taught clubs as needed.
5.  We could not have had all of the clubs that we did without people willing to be hosts/hostesses.  THANK YOU to all who opened their homes for clubs.  We appreciate you so much.

Please pray with us:
1.  Pray that those who hosted the clubs will be able to follow up with the children in their neighborhoods.
2.  Elias is still teaching 1 weekly 5-Day Club through September 11 at Chester Gospel Church.
3.  Elias is back to only 12 hours a week until additional support can be raised for him to be full time. (An additional $780 per month is needed for Elias to be at $30 a week.)
4.  Pray for us as we change gears to Good News Clubs and teaching training classes.
5.  Pray for at least 4 students for the Teaching Children Effectively 1 course that is scheduled to begin in September.
6.  We are having an End of the Summer Picnic on Saturday, August 24, 4:30 - 8:00 pm at the Hammar's home.  Pray for good attendance and for our time of sharing the blessings of summer ministry.  If you would like to attend, email or text us (Maryann's phone number is 517-331-5525)
7.  Cathie Stafford, one of our committee members, has many concerns right now.  Her mother is on hospice in New Jersey, her grandsons in Minnesota are struggling, and now her youngest grandson, Norm, who is 3.5 years old, was just diagnosed with Leukemia last week. He is undergoing chemo this week.  He is in Lansing.
