Wycliffe Banquet:

As a way to be grateful for our easy and ready access to the varied and numerous Bibles we have in our homes, make reservations for the May 2 Wycliffe Banquet at the Clarion Hotel in Modesto. The speaker is a great story teller and you will be excited to learn how modern technology is speeding up translations. Check out Matthew 24:14 for a major reason to support Bible translation. You will need free reservations by Easter Sunday, and know there will be a free will offering taken. Contact Lori Schoolland at 599-2686 for more info and reservations.

Although posters and fliers we have circulated show a cost of $30, we had a misprint and the cost is $40. The $40 registration is a boat registration fee, which covers all participants on that boat, whether you have 2 or 10 or even more fisherpersons on that boat. All proceeds from this event will go to support travel costs for our cadets and counselors attending the 2014 International Cadet Camporee near Lacombe, Alberta, Canada.
