Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praise Jesus! Pope Benedict XVI declared a Year of Faith beginning October 11, 20 12, and ending November 24, 20 I 3. St. Paul wrote to the Romans: "Faith, then, comes through hearing, and what is heard is the word of Christ" (Rm l0:17). We pray that all the readers of One Bread, One Body (OBOB) will be graced to hear the Word of Christ more deeply and grow in faith during this special year. Lord, "increase our faith" (Lk l7:5).
Thank you for praying for our Paul Jansen Discipleship Center and our Discipleship Retreat program. After taking a sabbatical for prayer and listening to the Lord, our retreats are starting back up this fall. Visit our retreats page for our retreat schedule. Please pray that our new retreat center building gets completed according the Lord's will.
We are also making progress on printing a Spanish version OBOB in the USA (Un Pan, Un Cuerpo). We are forming a team to work on this ministry. We need people who are bi-lingual in
English and Spanish to help do correspondence and translation work. We need people local to Cincinnati who can help with printing and mailing efforts. If you are being called to help, please call Jerry at (513) 922-9210.
Thank you for your prayers and donations. You are a blessing to us.
Your brothers and sister in Jesus,
Deacon George Schmidl, Mark Schuermann, Chris Jasek and Judy Erwin
