All God’s People S4:E1 – Happy New Year; Paradise Shed Project; Central Calif. Conference Elects Officers – for the week of Jan. 10, 2020
Volunteers Build 202 Sheds for Fire Survivors
In November, Maranatha Volunteers International and the Paradise church celebrated the completion of an ambitious community outreach project. In just three weeks of intense activity, volunteers constructed 202 storage sheds (surpassing the initial goal of 200) for survivors of the Camp Fire, a devastating wildfire that destroyed the town of Paradise in 2018.

Central California Conference Elects Officers
On Sunday, Dec. 8, the Central California Conference (CCC) Executive Committee elected Ramiro Cano as conference president for a five-year term—building on the nine years he has already led the conference as president.
This is an action that is generally taken at a Constituency Session, but it was referred to the Executive Committee after the 34th Constituency Session nominating committee of the Central California Conference, which had convened on Nov. 17, was unable to bring a name to the floor before the meeting concluded. CCC’s elected officers are listed below.
Central California Conference Officers:
Ramiro Cano, President
Ron Rasmussen, Vice President
Myra Thompson, Treasurer
Antonio Huerta, Vice President for Ministries

“Day by day, Dear Lord, of Thee three things I pray: To see Thee more clearly, Love Thee more dearly, Follow Thee more nearly, Day by day.” May this be our prayer in 2020.
