New Church Photo Directory We want you in our next church pictorial directory! Please make an appointment to have your picture taken on November 14th, 15th or 16th. Please also complete an information update so that we will have accurate information for you and your family! Sign up at the table in the foyer today. No purchases are necessary to be included in this important church resource.

Introducing Secret Sisters Ministry Secret Sisters is a great way to connect with another lady in our church family. By joining, you commit to pray for another lady regularly, and secretly encourage her from November 10, 2019 to June 28, 2020. There will be a Secret Sister mailbox at the back of the Sanctuary where you can leave a note or token for your Sister at least once a month! Remind her that you are committed to think about and pray for her. We will have a Reveal in June and you will find out who your Sister was. See Harriet Farrell for a questionnaire if you are interested to learn more or to join this ministry. Please return your questionnaire by next Sunday to be included. Thank you!

Sierra Leone

Kamakwie Wesleyan Hospital recently sent an update about its ongoing work and circumstances… 

Dear Milliken Church Friends, Not long ago we had a surprise unfortunate event. Thieves attempted to break in to Dr James Hayton’s home. My husband, Geoff and I “happened” to be on the hospital campus that night, and thankfully, were able to scare the intruders away. However, Dr Hayton was injured. This shocked and angered many in our community. One sad, long-term consequence of this incident is that several “potential” visiting doctors are no longer willing to come and volunteer in our facility. We are working to improve security, but this takes both manpower and money! Global Partners, our overseeing agency, has come alongside with some funds toward the installation of a security fence. We believe this would give us a greater level of security. Please pray for the following needs in light of this development:

– Pray for Dr James Hayton’s full physical healing

– Pray for all the staff and their emotional recovery from this threat of danger

– Pray for the new security fence project, that it will be a deterrent and shield of protection.

Also, the nation has subdivided this area of the country into two new districts. Kamakwie is now the principal town of the Karene District, which is very large and rural. We are also the only hospital in this district, so we must now work with the government more closely than before. Please pray for wisdom as we create partnerships and work alongside the government ministry of health.

We so appreciate your partnership and prayers! The demands upon us are many, but our Master is able to do all things as we offer God’s healing touch in the name of Jesus.

-Warmly, Carrie Jo Cain
