RODGERS BAPTIST CONFERENCE

Hey, Master Clubs Members!
“A Missionary Adventure” Night!
This Wednesday night, you will be learning about the missionary, Bro. Jarrod Tunnell in Argentina. Bro. Bob Simpson and Ms. Marian Marshall will be your instructors for this missionary.
Bro.Tunnel might eat “Asado” because it is
known to be the way to a person’s heart through eating this food. It is like our Bar B Q. The children love “Alfajores with dulce de leche” which are soft, crumbly cookies. They are a delicious treat perfect for a snack. See you this week as we study this missionary in Argentina.
TWO MORE OF OUR LOVED ONES HAVE GONE HOME
The home-going of Pat Paxton and Janie Barenscheer are new reminders of how transient life is and of how quickly it gets away.
Sister Pat Paxton was one of the most faithful, dedicated, hard-working members Northwest Baptist Church has ever had. She has been a member here since back in the 1990’s. Many of us knew her at Berean Baptist Church and others as far back as Austin Avenue Baptist. Sister Pat was one of those persons who would do anything within her power to serve the Lord through her church, and she didn’t have to be asked. She’d just step up and do it. She sang in the choir, played piano and organ, helped in the nursery, worked with children, served in the kitchen for all kinds of events and almost never missed a Sunday morning, evening or Wednesday night. If the doors were open, Pat was here. Rain or shine. For years she was the go-to person for funerals. She ordered the church flowers, coordinated many of the behind-the scene details and when there was a family meal Pat oversaw it. It would be hard to estimate how many funeral salads, vegetables and desserts she, JoAnn Lanier and Mary Jo Bridgewater prepared. Pat truly had a servant’s heart.
Sister Pat Paxton’s Memorial Service and interment are tomorrow. The funeral service is at 10:00 A.M. at the Earthman Resthaven Chapel on I-45 North at Rankin/Kuykendahl. The interment will immediate follow in the Resthaven Cemetery.
General family visitation for Sister Pat will begin at 5:00 P.M. today at the Earthman Chapel. It will continue until 8:00.
Sister Janie Barenscheer was not a member here at Northwest, but many of have been deeply connected to her for close to 50 years. Janie was the daughter of Peggy Young. Peggy was a member at Berean Baptist Church. When Berean sent Bro. Nick Michalinos to plant a new church in Pasadena, Peggy Young was a key part of the effort; such a viable part of Austin Avenue Baptist Church for years before her death.
Sister Peggy was Janie Barenscheer’s mother, and the sister of Rita who married Bill Heslep. God used them in both South America and in Australia to plant churches. Many in the Heslep family still live in the Brisbane, Australia area. They will be watching the live feed of Janie’s Memorial Service. At one point, Northwest Baptist Church was the sponsoring church for Bill & Rita Heslep.
Janie’s daughter, Cynthia Pigozzi has recently been attending Northwest Baptist Church, and is considering the possibility of coming here to be a part of what God is doing.
Janie’s Memorial Service is next Saturday here at Northwest. Visitation will begin at 10:00 A.M. and the Memorial Service will begin at 11:00. The body has already been interred in the Forest Park South Cemetery.

UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE
