La Pine sits 30 miles south of Bend, Oregon, close to the popular Sunriver Resort area. La Pine once had a thriving timber industry, but times change. It is now primarily a bedroom and retirement community that is growing rapidly.
Three men in our congregation have had surgery for various cancers in the past 3 months. Two of them are now cancer free! One of them, Will, had to have bone marrow transplant at OHSU in Portland. His cancer returned, he is back at OHSU for a clinical trial of immunotherapy. Pray that we will discover innovative ways to minister to children, as our traditional large VBS has been canceled due to Covid. Also that our YouTube channel will continue to reach and grow.
