GBF GLOBAL OUTREACH
Our purpose o f the Global Outreach ministry of GBF is to glorify God by
mobilizing the resources entrusted to GBF for the fulfillment of Christ’s Great
Commission to make disciples of all the nations ministering to the whole man.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MINISTRY
Wednesday, February 26, GBF will provide lunch for International students
attending OSU. Lunch is from 11:30am to 1:00pm at the Pillar, located at
2323 Monroe St, Corvallis. If you would like to help with this ministry,
please contact Pastor Orin, Virginia Pullen or Tim Jenks. We will also gather
to pray for this ministry Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 in Pastor Orin's office.
The following letter came from Roger Peterson, who is the Clearinghouse
Coordinator for Love In the Name of Christ.
Dear faithful prayers,
Here is a wonderful opportunity for us to feel the heart of God. Would you pray
for this need to be met? We have a request from a Lebanon couple that has taken
his parents in to live with them, both have Alzheimer’s. They are hoping that
someone will come and visit with them and perhaps take them on little outings
(individually or together). He uses a walker, was a rancher and had an excavation business. He was also a private pilot and restored antique cars. He likes to
watch people doing mechanical things. She likes to shop for little things at thrift
shops and go for walks. She also likes to look at books that have big pictures in
them. Appreciatively, Roger Peterson. Clearinghouse Coordinator 541-924-5683
LINDSEY BURROW: A resent update from Lindsey detailing her recent trip
to Papua, Indonesia, is on the Global Outreach Table in the foyer.
STACY SPELLINGS: Stacy Spellings will be leading a team to South Africa,
later in the year. Specific prayer requests include: 1) Outreach finances for
students: the initial $2500 dollar deposit is due today and 2 of my students
still don’t have the finances needed. 2) Discipleship: that the Lord would
continue to give me wisdom in how to disciple these 4 women, that I will
begin to really get God’s heart for them, that they would be united together
and bear one another’s burdens. 3) South Africa: That the Lord would be
preparing people’s hearts, that they would be open and receptive to the truths
that are in God’s word, that we as leaders would know exactly what
God wants us to focus on while there. That we would be able to serve and
encourage our contacts who are there long term.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Christian Witness: "The proclamation of the gospel is an action through
which the non-Christian receives a clear statement of the essential message.
Affirmation of the gospel is a process of modeling and explaining the
Christian message." Both are neede! Jim Petersen, Living Proof

Oh No! Today is the day to return the baby bottles. It is not too
late. Please bring back your bottles whether or not they are filled.
That is a donation by itself because it can be used again by OPC.
Repaint and Re-carpet Project
The GBF Board approved the replacement of our carpet in the foyer
and auditorium, to be proceeded by repainting. The carpet in our
auditorium & foyer over the years has deteriorated to the point where
it can no longer be cleaned because the backing has disintegrated.
The total cost of new carpet and paint is $30,000. If you would like
to give toward this project, write “Carpet and Paint Project” on your
envelope or check memo line.
Each person who has placed their faith in Christ is commanded
by Christ to be baptized (Mt 28:19-20). If you have trusted Christ,
and would like to be baptized, please contact Pastor Roland at
extension 301 or [email protected]
