PRAY FOR ST JOHN XXIII
That We Become The Only Church At
Last year was 40 years to the year,
1974, that this Church was built.
Last year, 2014, our Presbyterian

You have been praying for this to
happen for these 40 years — the
people of Israel wondered in the
desert for 40 years being puriﬁed;
Jesus was in the desert fasting for 40

made a saint last year at the
completion of this 40 years of
Without doubt, God is promising
something to us through these events.

negotiation is now beginning.
The 2014 Financial Report is
posted on the notice boards.
The Sunday collection was down
some $6,000. from the previous
year of 2013.
