What is 300 Strong?


In the book of Judges, the man Gideon was told “The Lord is with you” and the Lord wanted to show Himself strong, so the Lord spoke through Gideon to 22,000 people if you are fearful and trembling, GO HOME. So the number left was 10,000.

The Lord had the remaining 10,000 drink water and basically those who drank like a dog had to go home too. This left “300”, that were “STRONG”, because though small in number, their hope was in their God. Despite insurmountable odds, those “300” ended up defeating an army 135,000.

What does this mean to you? We have seemingly insurmountable odds with the spiritual and physical warfare that many men, women and children are going through right here in the Klamath Basin. But we also have the same God that Gideon does “300 STRONG” signifies a small number of people, that are not afraid of this fight because they know God is for them and they don’t drink water like a puppy.

Will you be one of the 300, the “300 STRONG” (monthly givers)?

Go to Donations to sign up to be one of the 300 people that gives $10, $20, $40, $100, or any amount you feel led to give, on a monthly basis. Or fill out one of the 300 Strong secure envelopes and return to the Gospel Mission. What seems small to you is a very powerful thing, when partnered with the Lord.

MOST NEEDED ITEM AT THE MISSION RIGHT NOW...BLANKETS

The cold weather has begun and we give away hundreds of blankets through the winter; however, these blankets are donated by our community and we have only a few left to give out. If you have blankets you don't need, please bring them to the Mission, drop them off 6am to 9pm at the front, 7 days a week.

Thank you for your generosity!


Recreational Intoxication: And a future is going up in smoke


By Rev Steve Flecken

The petition for sale of recreational marijuana in Klamath Falls has collected enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot, according to the Herald and News. Proponents are proclaiming victoriously “WE DID IT!” with the hashtag #KLAMATH-STRONG.

A commentary in the July 8 H&N by Ed Medina Jr., chief petitioner and owner of a local medical marijuana dispensary, claims that the pros of recreational pot outweigh the cons and that “there is no downside.”

Let’s pause a moment to remember the bottom line: This debate is about legitimizing intoxication as recreation. We already have medical marijuana available in town. That is not the question. We are now talking about getting high just for fun. In what way is that a victory for our community or a source of strength?

Mr. Medina’s commentary began with a chilling admission: “We know beyond any doubt that what we are doing is in the best interest of this community, and the people in it, even if the people do not understand that.” Whoa! High or sober, that is positively fascist. Why even bother with the November ballot if Mr. Medina and his supporters know better than the voters what is good for Klamath?
