Working through New Day Orphanage, the team will be doing construction projects, helping widows, running a Vacation Bible School, putting on an evangelistic drama in public schools, and reaching out to local women. Pray for Steve & Dee Kohler, Josh Vang, Andrea Carlson, Callie Duch, Nate Haugen, Sharon Heckathorn, Terry Huang, Kyle Lacy, Amy Leeds, Christin Ones, Andrea Owen, Jessie Shulo, Michelle Van Oss and Ron Wright.

Update from the Nesselroades in Mali

Dr. Dan Nesselroade and his family serve at the hospital for Women & Children in Koutiala, Mali. "Dear Friends, I am attempting to write an update letter, which, at this point, is a bit of a challenge. I feel like the situation in Mali is extremely fluid and difficult to understand, even from here. Most likely, what I tell you will change within the next few days, but I will try. The date that we have all been awaiting was May 22, at which point the Junta were to announce whether they will accept the transitional government, put in place by the surrounding West African countries, for another year, after which elections will be held. If this happens, it will bring some relative stability and measures can be taken to reclaim the North. If not, it will probably result in renewed sanctions, more fighting and continued unrest. Well, it was announced that the transitional government/president will be kept in power for another year at which point elections will be held. This resulted in large demonstrations and violence in Bamako and the transitional president was attacked, injured and hospitalized. As I said before, the situation is very unpredictable and ever-changing. The Hospital has been functioning on a skeletal crew of 6-8 for a while now and they are all exhausted, but relying on God's strength to carry them in this difficult time. The unrest in Mali doesn't seem to have lessened the patient load, and they have been continuing to do many surgeries and deliveries. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!"

Update from the Suttons (Guatemala)

Norman & Vickie Sutton are CCC international workers at an orphanage in Guatemala. "On May 1 we completed 2 years of living and serving full time at Home of Life and Nutrition in Guatemala. Living and serving at a children's home is a lot like parenting; it is hard to see the fruit of your efforts from day to day but you hope and pray that you are making a difference and impact on the lives of the children you interact with daily. We try to live out our faith and demonstrate the love of Jesus in everything we do. We cannot tell you how blessed we are by all of you, our faithful financial and prayer supporters. You are the best! Our monthly financial support continues to stay right around 95% of our need, and once again the difference has been provided through onetime donations. It is such a blessing to serve in Guatemala knowing that you all have our backs."

Prayer for Missions Pray for a young couple from CCC who is considering an opportunity to work and minister in Afghanistan. Norman & Vickie Sutton (Guatemala) / Pray for wisdom for the doctors in diagnosing the issue in Norman's hand and for complete healing and return of full use. Zambia / Pray for CCC's Emerge team who is ministering at an orphanage this week. Mali / Continue to pray for the government in Mali. Progress for stability in the government is slow and the northern part of the country is still attempting to set up their own Islamic government. China / Pray for the team of CCC college students ministering to college students in China this month. Lance & Karina Thrush (El Salvador) / Pray for us as we transition away from pastoring a church to leading our new youth center. Mark & Lori Kiser (Omaha) / Pray for us as we leave for a 40-day trip across America to train up Nepalese Pastors. Carolyn Thorson (Gabon) / Pray for Carolyn as she prepares for a full knee replacement mid-June. CCC Missionaries / Pray for God's protection on all CCC workers around the world. CCC supports over 20 families and individuals in 14 countries.

To make a financial contribution, designate your gift on your weekly CCC giving envelope. Contributing to Compass is a great way to invest in the lives of kids and encourage hope in our city. To volunteer, contact Jenny Burg / jennyb@cccomaha.org.

Kingdom investment Financial resources are a blessing, a result of God’s provision and a tool to be used to worship God. Followers of Christ acknowledge that material possessions belong to God and the return of money to the local church is an investment in the Kingdom.

What should I know about Kingdom investing? It is a privilege to participate in the work of the local church by contributing cheerfully, sacrificially and generously (emphasis on 2 Corinthians 8 and 9). Through prayer, seek a clear conscience

in regard to investing in the work God has given CCC to accomplish. If you are visiting or you are not yet a follower of Christ, make today’s priority to focus on the larger issue: the relationship God offers through Jesus. Contact Tim Perry if you have questions about your faith journey / timp@cccomaha.org. How do I participate? Participate during services at both campuses or set up eGiving online. You may also place checks or cash in the secure giving box on the wall near the office entrance at the Old Mill Campus.

Christ Community Church / Making disciples of Jesus for kingdom impact / cccomaha.org

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘People do not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” - Matthew 4:4 (TNIV)

The benefit: A year of dynamic growth

In 2012, CCC is experiencing God’s big story together. The Daily Bible in Chronological Order and Reader’s Guides are available today at the Resource Booth at Old Mill. Sunday messages will align with weekly readings. A companion reading guide for journaling and study tips will stretch minds as God’s word is applied. Daily audio & video accelerators will add depth and insight. People meeting in community will engage in discussion with the narrative. Throughout 2012 electives, classes and web tools will enhance the challenge. Accept the challenge in 2012 to know God better and love Him more as the depth of His love and character are revealed. What if I’ve fallen behind on my readings? What if I’m new to Project 4:4? If you begin late, jump in with the current week’s reading plan. If you miss a week, just keep going. Pick up where you can, and go back and read what you missed if you have time.

and a sensible system to read the Bible in chronological order.

The challenge: Read the Bible cover-to-cover in one year.

DYI Parking Info Hey Church, Well, the dust is flying at the Old Mill campus and impact is being maximized with the renovation of the Kids Connect space. This is a dream come true made possible by your faithful contributions to DYI. In addition, TD Ameritrade is moving into the neighborhood (you may have noticed). The PayFlex lot (North of the Old Mill Campus) is undergoing maintenance, and later this summer 108th St. will be repaved. All of this is great news, but add CCC's parking reconfiguration and new entrance for the Kids wing and the result is significant change for those who call Old Mill home. I want to alert you to a couple things to help make traffic flow quickly, smoothly, and elegantly (the elegant part may be an exaggeration) this summer.

This Sunday, the driveway between the Payflex lot and CCC will be closed. In fact, because of the Payflex paving, please do not park there this week if this is your favored lot. Traffic flow in and out of the CCC lot will only be possible at the CCC main entrance resulting in a potential for congestion, especially between services. For CCC veterans, the fastest way in and out AND a way to serve our guests, is to park in the TD Ameritrade parking lot – just 600 feet directly north of the church. The HP lot, 730 feet away, is also an excellent option (and you’ll be in the same lot as me!) Both lots have easy access, excellent traffic flow, and will keep the CCC lot more sane. In fact, I’d encourage you to make one of these lots your permanent parking habit. In this way, we will always make room for one more person who matters to

God at CCC. We even have some surprises in mind for those who help out by parking in the outer lots - watch the HUB for details. Finally, I need you to help. Pass the word, drive one car per family, arrive early, stay late and please pay attention to the message boards as construction proceeds. And, be really, really nice to our parking volunteers. These servants direct you on and off the lots efficiently, so give them the respect they have earned. Thanks so much for your partnership in the gospel, for being faithful to your DYI commitments… and in really practical matters like parking. Grace,

Mark Ashton, Lead Pastor
