Estrella Children are Precious to the Lord
Baptist
Association I walked into the children’s classroom at Ajo Calvary
Baptist Church and joined them at the table as Mrs.
OFFICE Margot Bissell was teaching. It was a joy to listen to the
623-936-4481
children as they interacted with their teacher. Mrs.
7901 W. OSBORN Bissell has invested her life to teach them about Jesus.
RD. PHOENIX, AZ I can only imagine the conversation that Jesus had with
children as they would run and hang around him. I could

playing with them.
ESTRELLA I met with several children’s leaders in our association to
BAPTIST have a conversation about their goals for children. Every
ASSOCIATION leader expressed the church is to be an instrument of

March-ing onward Christian Soldiers!

By God's grace, The Edge Church was launched last Sunday, February 12,
2017 in the Buckeye / Verrado area of West Phoenix. We had lots of new
people from the community and planter Matt Jacobsen started a series from
Colossians on getting to know Jesus.
Church planting work...I believe...is the SMILE of God.

Check out these pictures and praise the Lord with us! Pray that His Spirit would
keep drawing people to Himself...and pray lives would be transformed by Christ.
Pray for people to return the next few weeks and to invite their friends.
Dave Arden,

 March 4 Missions

Missions Night: March 14, 2017, 6:30pm
Focus on Southeast Asia South Peoria Baptist Church
9000 West Olive Avenue, Peoria, AZ 85345

What’s it like to experience persecution firsthand?

What’s it like for a new believer to come to Christ and lose his family, his
job and to be exiled from their village. The environment in many parts of
Southeast Asia is not a safe one for believers, but in spite of that God is
really on the move touching hearts and changing many lives.

Join us for a night to engage the community of Southeast Asia with IMB
Missionary of Sumatra and Pastor Amit Singh of SE India. Both speakers
will be sharing about the challenge of reaching their country for Christ and
yet the big opportunities to make an impact.

For more information call Dave Arden at (928) 301-7110

Mission Vision: Wednesday, March 22 at 9:30 a.m.
Go To Sumatra FBC Garden Lakes (front bldg.)

Would you like your church to have a personal relationship with a
missionary overseas and develop a relationship with a sister church in a
developing country?
Here is the chance for that to happen. We are planning some vision trips to
Sumatra in the fall and in 2018. A Small group of 3 to 5 people spending a
week in Sumatra where they will do prayer walking, worship with local
churches, explore opportunities to help train church workers and experience
what God is doing in Indonesia.

The benefits of this opportunity for our churches in our association to partner
with churches in Indonesia cannot be measured. Would you pray about you
or someone from your church going on one of these vision trips?

For more information you can call Jeffery Stachmus or James Hayes.

 Women’s Conference 2017

Sponsored by First Southern Baptist Church
of Buckeye, the Estrella Baptist Association,
and the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention,
this year’s Women’s Day Conference was a
success. Gary Dodrill asked me to share my
story of “A Woman Who Turns God’s Head.”
We invited women from all over the Valley to
come and learn what God finds beautiful in a
woman and leave content with who He
created you to be. Over 200 women and
teenage girls answered the invitation and
great things happened! Comments from the
day consisted of words like… “Great day;
AMAZING; good time of worship; wonderful
food; life changing; must do this again!”

The Lord showed Himself faithful by taking
care of all of the details of such a big event.
Amy Gerak and the Grace Fellowship Band
led us all in worshipping the Lord in spirit
and truth. The worship dance ministry
consisting of girls grades 3rd through 8th grade
and led by Amber Brown demonstrated
worship to the Lord in a beautifully
orchestrated dance. We all enjoyed the
wonderful taco bar provided by a team led by
Rose Majors. And many door prizes were
awarded.

Women’s Conference 2017


 The heart of my message was a lesson on

worship. God is seeking worshippers
according to John 4:23. To continue this
message beyond the Women’s Day, I have
started a blog. It’s still under construction
but promises to provide more biblical
lessons on how we can be women who turn
God’s head. Soon I will post the three
video sessions from the Women’s Day! If
you’d like to take a look at what is to
come, go to www.rachaelwoodcox.com
and hit ‘follow.’ The site will notify you
via email as soon as I have posted a video
or blog.

I’m thankful to the Arizona Southern
Baptist Convention and the Estrella Baptist
Association for so generously supporting
this day financially. All of the people who
helped put it together are so appreciated, as
well. Last but certainly not least, I
proclaim my praise to our faithful God
who chooses to use people to further His
truths! To Him be the glory forever and
ever!

Living in honor of Him,

Rachael Woodcox
