Dog Seeking Owner

There is a 160 lb Mastiff that lives next door with my dear retired neighbor. She has to move and will be packing up the truck this Saturday. I am trying to help her find a home for her dog, as she will eventually be moving into a retirement community and can't take him with her. He is all black with a small white patch on chest. My 4 year old daughter loves him, but keeps her distance when he moves around as he is a lot of weight and bulk and could easily bump her over. He is gentle, rarely barks, completely potty trained, loves children and needs space. He doesn't like to be shut in a room with the door closed. He is very low key and loves to be petted and itched. He turns 5 years old in August. Name is Muso (pronounced Moussa). All shots are up to date and she has the records if they are needed. He comes free to a good home with his food and water bowls, and leash. We live in Oreland, PA. Please contact me at 267-415-1177 or by email if you are interested.

New Bible Study for Women

Susan Fletcher is opening her home in Haddon Heights, NJ,  for a new
woman’s Bible study on Saturday mornings from 9:00-10:30. The study
will be directly from the Scriptures. We hope that this will encourage
women to study the Scriptures deeply, to understand the context of a
passage, the theology of the passage, and the appropriate application.
We also seek to understand more fully the Reformed faith as expressed
in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Catechisms.

We hope this study will appeal to women in all stations of life as
they seek to fulfill every Christian’s responsibility to know the
Scriptures well and profoundly.

If you are interested please contact
Susan Fletcher ( )
or Cheryl Brubaker ( ).
The study begins on March 17.

Special prayer for special people

Next week, March 15 - 17, David Apple and Kristen Harnly are heading south for the 2012 Mercy Ministries Conference to be held in Chattanooga, TN. As well as drawing people from all over North America for this event, the teaching/training will cover a variety of areas - from disaster relief to ministering to those with Autism.

Stephanie Hubach, our friend in the Special Needs Ministry of Mission to North America, is one of the primary leaders for the week. She asked Kristen Harnly to share testimony of what the Lord has been doing in our midst at Tenth. As a facilitator /trainee, she will be helping churches stretch out to embrace ministry opportunities among those with special needs throughout this coming year. So we are excited for her and praying she will enjoy sharing with everyone (even though it means she has to stand up front -- so pray hard for her!).
