What's Your Color Personality

Posted by Brittany at 12:42 PM 1 comments Links to this post








Found this fun quiz on the How About Orange blog from True Value Paint and thought I'd share it with you. Basically you answer four questions and it give you your color. Guess what color I was... Yellow!? Most of my house is blue but whatever... here's what it said,


"You are quite the powerful thinker. It’s this talent that allows you to overcome a plethora of great obstacles. Luckily, this doesn’t affect your ego and you give off a pretty easy-going appearance. You enjoy the finer things in life and also have an attraction to art. If you can help it, you try not to rock the boat. But you also can’t stop yourself from searching for new ideas, methods or styles. "

This is definitely me but I don't think I have anything yellow. Oh well let me know what color you turn out to be!

A GREAT WORK!

Posted by Brittany at 10:54 AM 0 comments Links to this post



Some information about the work of our brothers and sisters in India. Who need support and encouragement!


I am Sunil Raju, 23-year old member and preacher of the Church of Christ in India. I have just completed my Bachelor's Degree in engineering and am hoping to continue my studies within the next year to obtain my Master's Degree, Lord willing. Along with my studies, I have been working to spread the New Testament truth here and bring many lost souls to Christ.
My grandfather has preached in various congregations since 1970. My father was also a Baptist church member until he married my mother and came to know the New Testament truth and was baptized in the Church of Christ. For the past 8 years my father has been completely involved in the Lord's work. He is now the preacher in Gonepudi Church of Christ, a small village near my town. I have been helping my father preach the Word of God in several villages. I came to know the New Testament truth through my father and began working for the Churches of Christ at the age of 17 years.
For the past 6 years we have been spreading the Word of God to many unreached villages and bringing many souls to Christ. We had a good harvest, but the workers became fewer. So, we began teaching and encouraging some church members and denomination preachers, leading them through the New Testament truth. Some of these preachers have begun preaching and starting congregations in other villages. We have 5 congregations at this time with about 20 members in each congregation. Preaching School
We are conducting Bible studies for the preachers at my home one day each month. Some denomination preachers are also attending the classes. Because of these Bible classes we have conducted for the preachers, 4 denomination preachers have been converted to the New Testament Church and have begun working with us. We have been providing traveling expenses, breakfast, and lunch to the preachers who attend the classes. Also, we have been helping our preachers with a small gift every 3 months. For the detailed information about the Preaching School please Click here
Orphan home
We have had many baptisms in the past few years. I hope and pray we will have many more conversions in the future. We have orphans, semi-orphans, distitutes and widows in some of our congregations. We have been feeding these orphan children and widows once or twice a month. We would dearly love to start an orphan home for these children to provide shelter, food, and clothing and to share the love of Christ with them. For the detailed information about the orphan home please Click here
Most of our congregations are in villages and in tribal areas. All our church members are very poor. We help them with clothing, blankets and other necessities. We provide Bibles to the needy. We are doing much work in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ here in India. In His service, Sunil Raju. G, Preacher

GREAT Weekend

Posted by Brittany at 10:12 AM 1 comments Links to this post
Hey everyone I had an awesome weekend and I hope you did too! I attended the Tara COC lectureship on Saturday, met up with some old friends and made some new ones! (Shout out to Teresa from Forest Park) :) Then I went to a friend's Pampered Chef party and all I can say about that was yum! I then enjoyed an amazing sermon by Bro. Eric Owens about what's really important in your life and that's saving your own soul and then saving the souls of the ones you love.

I use to own a bridal shop renting designer gowns and I decided to close it to focus on the magazine. So I had a woman come to look at a dress yesterday and she was telling me that this would be her second time being married. And so we had a good time trying on dresses and just talking. After she left I was wondering if I should say anything to her about scriptural reasons for being re-married. So later on that night I was doing my daily bible reading and in the chapters I was reading God tells Moses to go to Pharoh. Moses' reply is what struck me the most. He said, "Who am I that I should go to Pharoh?" Who am I that I should... is what I was thinking concerning this woman that I had just met. But then I thought I am the light of the world and if I don't who will?

So I called her and told her that I was concerned about her and told her what the scriptures said and she was so happy that I called. We had a good conversation and I mentioned that my father, who is a minister, does pre-marital counseling and she was very open to it. Needless to say when you do the right thing it always works out. Pray for courage and boldness to speak the truth of God's word. See people as the souls they are and try and help them wherein you can. Let's all try and remember what's truly important as we go through our daily walks.
