Hurricane Relief--Help Needed

Florida needs our help. Hurricane Ian has been named "the deadliest storm to hit [Florida] since 1935." Relief workers are working tirelessly to help Florida residents and businesses pick up the pieces and begin the long road to recovery after massive damage from category 4 Ian. At least 68 persons from FL have lost their lives and about 25% of the State (2.7 million customers) lost electricity. The devastation is estimated at more than $60 billion in private insured losses just in Florida. Adventist Community Services is working with FEMA to set up warehouse s and distribution centers. They need our help. They need money now. To donate, give directly to the Florida Conference at https://relief.floridaconference.com or mark your tithe envelope for HURRICANE RELIEF. Thank you for caring. Thank you for giving. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Offering for October 8, 2022

Radio Expansion

Isaiah 58:1 “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet.”

Radio is one of the most effective means for spreading the gospel in these last days. Radio, like reading, has a personal connection to the mind and soul. Many Pastors report that Strong Tower Radio (STR) listeners are the most prepared for baptism. Here are a few testimonies:

- A couple walked into their local Seventh Day Adventist church saying that they couldn't attend first-day church any more after all they had learned from listening to STR.
- The delivery man stopped by and we learned he has been listening to Strong Tower Radio. He says STR preaches the Word of God like no other station he has heard.
- An Adventist member had to be out of state due to an emergency for 2 months. They often felt the emptiness of a radio station without solid Bible teaching and reverent music. They were overjoyed to be back in Michigan to hear Strong Tower Radio. It was a “double home-coming!”
- Nan worked a job that kept her in contact with people in their cars. At one car she couldn’t resist asking if they were listening to Strong Tower Radio. They were! She asked if they had the address for the nearest Adventist church. Nan turned up there the following Sabbath.
- One listener couldn’t make sense of what the Bible said & what churches taught. Then he found Strong Tower Radio! After his first Adventist church service, he said, “I’m home!”

Michigan churches and STR are still working to cover all of Michigan with radio stations. Your generous offering marked “Radio Expansion” this week will help interested churches make this full coverage of Michigan with the gospel a reality!!
