A Note From Pastor Alan
In Memory of Winston Lazaroo
For a year and a half we've heard of people getting sick and dying from COVID-19. I believe that this pandemic has been politicized way too much. At first, I thought we'll overcome this virus with treatments and vaccines; after all we live in the most advanced nation in the world, right? Yet, a couple of weeks to flatten the curve has stretched into 18 months.
This past week, this dreaded virus struck a dear friend - Winston Lazaroo. He's the first person that I know died from the virus. I've known others who had it and recovered, but none had died.
Winston was an amazing man. He shared stories with me about his youth, his salvation experience, and how his life was committed to furthering the gospel. Jesus made a dramatic change in Winston's life and that was seen in his call to start churches as a missionary from Singapore to the US. He made a big impact on many lives around the world. In his latter years he drove a bus for the Muckleshoot Tribal Schools. I found out through Facebook that the tribe will miss him greatly, especially his fellow bus drivers and the kids.
He definitely touch my life for the better. I will miss my prayer times with him in a mighty way!
Join the family in a Celebration of His Life this Saturday at 11:00 at out church. Keep June, John, Jasmin and his grandchildren in your prayers.
Until we meet again, Winston.

Pray For Our Church
Vista, California, is a beautiful city north of San Diego and home to nearly 100,000 people. While the beauty of the area should point people to Creator God, many residents are apathetic when it comes to spiritual matters.
It is for this reason that Chase and Laura Feindel started a church in the Vista community in order to reach those who need to hear and accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Chase grew up in Vista and, for a time, the Feindel’s new church met in the high school he attended. Today, the couple intentionally makes connections within the community and are seeing many people come to faith.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program provides resources for missionaries like the Feindels to start churches in communities that need to hear the Gospel.
PRAY for the Feindels as they reach the city of Vista and that God will continue to open doors and hearts in the city so that people come to follow Jesus.
