To find more about Summit Church's missionaries and to sign greeting cards for them, stop by the Mission Table. These cards are very important to the missionaries. There is also information on these missionaries on Summit's website.
HEART'S DESIRE: The Heart's Desire Fund is a special way to reach out in love to a woman on the mission field. Last month, we sent a gift to Melinda Koehler. Our new Heart's Desire lady is Lata Thorat. Lata and her husband minister in India. Her Heart's Desire is to have some furniture pieces and appliances. Donations can be made at the Mission Table. Summit Church blessed Lata 13 years ago with a Heart's Desire gift. She was very blessed and said it was the first time anyone had ever given her a gift.
LADIES FALL RETREAT: There will be a meeting today, after the service in the youth room, for any ladies planning on going to the Love Life Conference on Sept. 17-19.
CAN YOU HELP? George Wolfe would like a ride to church twice a month. If you can help out, on a rotating basis, please see Dale or Donna Francis.
A HIGHER STANDARD WOMEN'S MINISTRY: Ladies, let's live a higher standard, let's live the way the Bible tells us to live. We're here to help! A Higher Standard Women's Ministry will encourage you to live up to God's standards. You will have a great time and meet ladies who want to live up to God's standards also. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, Aug. 12, at 6:30 PM. At the end of our meeting , we will be having a drawing class, presented by Jean Henke. The class and supplies are free.
SHARING JESUS: We have been sharing the gospel through the passing out tracts for 59weeks now. If 30 people in the church have faithfully passed out one tract per week, we have reached 1,770 people with the gospel! Continue to pray for boldness and the direction of the Holy Spirit as you share Christ. Take as many tracts and Life Books from the Connections Table as you like. Don't forget to give us a 1 minute video of how you have been sharing Jesus. This is such a great encouragement to others!
PRAYER: Summit Church's Prayer Life Lines are groups of 2-3 people who join together on a weekly basis on the phone to pray for Summit and its members. If you would like to become part of a Prayer Life Line at any time, stop by the Connections Table and find out more details. The results from people joining together in prayer have been wonderful! August Prayer Calendars are now ready on Summit Church's website.
LOVE BABIES AND KIDS? We are looking for some great people to minister to babies and kids at Summit. If you would like to serve in the Nursery or Children's Church, please fill out a Volunteer Connection from the Connections Table.
INVESTORS: Are you ready to invest your time and talents in the kingdom of God? Start volunteering at Summit! There are many ways to get involved! There are needs in the Helps Ministry, Children's and Nursery, Worship Team and Projection. Pick up a Volunteer application from the Connections Table if you are interested.

DOING A GOOD WORK-HELPING PEOPLE
John & Shirley Cissell
J&S Ministries has been called by our Lord to evangelize the people of Panama! The vision the Lord gave us is to train nationals as disciples so they can raise up disciples within their own communities. This will promote long-lasting propagation of the Gospel throughout Costa Rica and other parts of the world. The people of Costa Rica have access to other countries that we do not!
The Cissells have been on the mission field many years and started their mission work in Costa Rica. They have started my Bible Colloeges, some of them in prisons, have assisted local churches and have ministered to children and to the poor.
All of this means there are more, Evangelists, Prophets, Pastors, Teachers and Apostles, who are raising up more disciples! More and more people are getting saved as a result!
John and Shirley will be at Summit Church in August.
Seek the Lord about what He would have you do to support missions.
From the Thorats:
We sincerely appreciate your love and continuous support to us and our ministry. After much thought and prayer Lata has consented to accept your Heart's Desire gift which you will be taking to bless women on the mission field. We praise God that your church has been a great blessing to us and our ministry. Your prayers and love has been a great encouragement to both of us, our staff and our ministry. While thinking about your Heart's Desire gift Lata would like to purchase some furniture items and some home appliances and as suggested by we will be sending the photograph and her information along with this email.
Please convey our love and greetings to all the members of your congregation.
With love and prayers,
Rev. and Mrs. N. Y. Thorat
