This Sunday our number were small, but our celebration in Jesus was big. It was nice to be with our church family, and we enjoyed a great pot luck meal together. We had enough left over that many of our families who struggle with food scarcity were able to take extra home to help supplement other meals. I am thankful that we support each other in our spiritual needs, as well as our physical needs. Captain Lisa Barnes, Captains Anthony Barnes, Viviana Ramirez

One of our callers wanted to donate some gently used kitchen items for the purpose of helping people who are moving into a new home. She mentioned towels and utensils, to name a few. Her main reason for choosing The Salvation Army as the recipient is because TSA does not discriminate. After explaining this she said, “You guys reach people all across the board.” Yes! And we will keep on serving and reaching as many people as we can! Anna Stone, Edee Yuen

This weekend we hosted Big Book Comes Alive, it always helps the men and women in program see how God and 12 Steps go together, and provides great encouragement as others share from their experience, strength and hope. One man who had months of clean time before entering the Center talked about how this opened his eyes and helped him to understand where all the crazy thoughts were coming from even though he was off drugs...smile beaming, eyes clear and getting clearer!

We had a stirring of the Holy Spirit this last Sunday that left us encouraged and amazed. About 25 people come up to stand with the Corps Officers, as Major Bill Begonia asked who will stand with the leadership to get involved in ministry. After that the time of prayer was powerful where one teenager prayed so loud that the place seemed to shake. Another teenager after Church accepted Christ and walked away with her first Bible. And then some of the teenage girls just wanted to continue singing praises at the piano. God is good! Please continue to pray for wisdom for our corps and the vision that God will lay upon our hearts for the corps and the community! Carolina Lopez, Celestine Ruwethin, Shoshannah Ruwethin

Last week we were at Officer Council’s most of the week. On Sunday our Sunday school and holiness meeting had many challenging things happen. Many of our street community come into the service and are welcomed to join us. During Sunday school a gentleman raised his voice and I asked him to go out into the hallway with me. He then began to explain that he was pregnant and going to have a child. Latter as we were worshipping two men were arguing in the men’s bathroom, so loud they we’re heard over the music in the chapel. Captain Lance went in to bring order. One of the men was asked to leave because he was unwilling to lower his voice. Then captain Lance came back into the chapel in time to bring the message for the service, ”The Word” out of John 1:1-5. The enemy wants to bring chaos but God wants to bring order. In spite of the chaos of the morning the Word was delivered. Captain Dana Walters, Captain Lance Walters

Here is a success story from Bethany, our Social Service worker. Bethany had another single lady come in this week that had originally come in, in tears and deep grief. She had lived in her car for four months. She helped her get her social security card, a mental health counselor, and get on the Section 8 list. We prayed when she had come in that God would open doors for her and provide housing and income. She came in to thank Bethany because this week she is finally housed. She brought in a card that said, “Sometimes kindness is a small gesture that makes all the difference in the world. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated so very much…Thank you for all your help and support. You helped me through a very hard time. I couldn’t have done it without you….With Love, Gloria.” Bethany looked at her and said, “Isn’t this what we asked God to do? God didn’t forget about you, Gloria. He is providing for you.” Gloria teared up and shook her head and gave Bethany a hug. Lieutenant Colin Pederson, Lieutenant Felecia Pederson

We did something a little different this week during Sunday Worship. We compiled a list of all the people we have not seen in some time and wrote their names on envelopes that contained "Thinking of You" cards in them. We then pinned them to seats around the chapel as a visual reminder of all the folks we have been missing. At a specified time during the service we asked the congregation to pick a card or two and write a note of encouragement. We then placed them on the Holiness Table and had a time of prayer over them. We had several "non-joiners" participate in the writing of notes and everyone seemed to enjoy the break from the ordinary. Captain Monica King, Major Mark King

What a great Sunday! The Sheridan Songsters made their debut and presented a musical offering during the service: "Jesus Loves Me" by Ivor Bosanko. Major Troy and Captain Anie Trimmer were visiting and we enjoyed having a pianist (and we enjoyed having Major Troy there, too!).

An Interesting new Sunday School Program where participants read scripture aloud... but here's the kicker: they do so as one voice in the entry area (Cafe) while those coming in to workout at the Kroc Center are passing by. Is this an Open Air prototype? Will it be accepted? When the reading ends this group shares what scripture is speaking into their lives. Pray for this new ministry group.

On Sunday, one of our Corps members shared an encouraging word with several others. It was something that she had read recently, and she felt it was important to share. The message was, "Hang in there." Simple words, yet powerfully felt. It related to the passage from Isaiah 41:10, which says, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Again, it was a simple few words, but it seemed to be just the right message for some people Sunday morning. Lt.

pumpkin patches, min golf, and youth worship. While the officers attended councils most of the week we ended our week with great joy. For the Medford Corps first youth group outing, we spent some time at a corn maze chasing down clues and great times. Later that night for men's fellowship we went to the Put-Put and played a round of mini-golf with the men and sons, a few of us also had the opportunity to jump in some carts and chase one another around a track for a laugh. It was great to see growth in both of these programs. on Sunday the youth worship band took the stage for their first official shot at spreading joy with worship and it was amazing only to be encored at hope house later that night.

We’ve had a busy start to fall, with lots of unexpected blessings and a few disappointments. One of the huge blessings most recently was getting our first Pathway of Hope family into housing. They had been living in their car for the past 18 months, and came to us for food, but were never really willing to try working with us through the POH program until September. With weekly counseling, goal setting, and the help and resources provided by POH, we were able to get the family housed (and set up with all their household goods!) in less than one month. They are continuing to meet with Lt. Aaron over the next year, and we’re excited to see them really get back on their feet! Aaron Ruff, Meagan Ruff

This past week was a roller coaster ride. We had two corps members in critical condition in the hospital in Anchorage. I praise GOD that we also had Officer's Councils in Anchorage this week which enabled us to be there for our people. By the end of the week both soldiers were released Praise the LORD. I am also thankful for our Nurse Practitioner in Angoon who fought the red tape and reluctance of the off island medical staff in order to get our soldiers into the facilities that could give them the care that saved their lives.

We are excited to have started a new timbrels class at the Corps! The girls are excited to learn and be able to compete at the Encore competition next summer. Also, we are grateful for the visit this past Sunday of our Divisional Youth Secretary, David Kim. We truly enjoyed his visit, his message and participation with the worship team. Captain David Kim was an encouragement and blessing to the San Jose Temple! Captain Caleb Montes, Captain Iliana Montes
Last week our Home League ladies took their Pre-made packages, that included socks, water, and an invite to the corps, and hit the streets serving the homeless. They prayed with folks and handed out all of the packages. One homeless lady said, “how did you know what I needed?” And one of the ladies replied, “Jesus sent us to you!” I am so proud that our Home League stepped so bravely into this ministry! It was such a blessing! Captain Caroline Rowe, Captain Dustin Rowe
