          It Was One of the Wettest Weeks of My Life,
                      But It Was Great!
       It’s kind of funny, that some of the coldest, wettest, and hottest weeks of my life have
been spent, in of all places, Refugio de International de Niño’s, or rather, Children’s Haven
Orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico.

       Coldest – February of 2006. On my first trip, with six other amigos from Rejoice to
Children’s Haven Orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico, I had expected it to be at least warm To
our surprise we experienced record cold. 20s and 30s may not seem cold to us Minnesotans,
but when you aren’t prepared for it a week of temps like that is just plain miserable. I simply
was not prepared for it. In Mexico schools close when the temp drops below 30 and school
was closed at least two days that week. Consequently, I shivered through most of the week.

        Hottest – June of 2009. Last year a bus load of people from Rejoice traveled to the
orphanage. I expected it to be hot, and I was not disappointed. Each day the temperature was in
the high 90s or over 100. We made sure we drank plenty of water, and carried out our tasks
in aiding the mission of this ministry.

        Wettest – April 11-16, 2010. My latest adventure to Reynosa was wet. Very wet, it
rained (sometimes poured) every day of the week. There are no storm sewers so the roads
become rivers and the mud plentiful. Yet, in spite of the rain, we dug holes, poured cement,
welded, painted, played volleyball, and more. By the end of the week I had a couple of shirts
that were impenetrable to Tide and Era. Those shirts will find new use as rags.

        Those three weeks also happen to be some of the most memorable and spiritually
rewarding weeks of my life. We spend our day time hours fixing, repairing, building, digging,
welding, and sewing. In the evenings, after cena (dinner), we participated in devotions, taking
cabrito (horseback rides) with the smaller children, and spirited games of volleyball with the
high school aged kids and house parents (Rejoice has some pretty good volleyball players).

        Another group from Rejoice will be venturing down to Reynosa in June. They will have
the opportunity to share God’s love with these children and house parents, and while it may be
too late to sign up for the summer trip, it is not too early to begin thinking about next year. If
you have yearned for a life changing experience, then you might consider taking part in a future
Mission trip. If you’d like to see a little bit of the work and fun we were privilege to be a part
of check out the orphanage website at

The Mexico Mission Group will be serving Brats at McDonald’s Meats (Clear Lake) on June 4th
and 5th.

                       The Rejoice Council Wants to Hear from You
         Some questions keep coming up periodically. At the April meeting of the Council, the question
of a third worship service came up again. And once again there was no quick answer.
         So, the members of the Council are looking for the thoughts and opinions of the congregation.
Your questions, opinions, and sage advice are desired at this time. Please feel welcome to call or email
council members. Sunday morning conversations are also welcome.
         This topic is on the agenda for discussion at the May 11 council meeting.

      March giving was up about $1,000 over February. Rejoice received a special gift to our Mortgage Fund which, with
          your faithful giving, helped with our March mortgage commitment.
Our Duplo Challenge is underway and we ask each of you to consider increasing your weekly giving by:
                                $2.75 to our Mortgage Fund
                                $4.50 to our General Fund
                                or a total of
                                $7.25 per week for both.
Help get us back on track financially. Thanks to each of you who have taken the Challenge.

                                                                 Christians, faith communities, pastors, and your grandma are always
                                                                 encouraging you to read the Bible - but it seems as if each of these
                                                                 people reach different conclusions about what it says. How do they
                                                                 reach different conclusions? How can two people read the same story
                                                                 and interpret it to mean different things?

                                                                 Everyone who uses the Bible engages in interpretation! In this 9-week
                                                                 study we will explore the methodology, questions, and skills involved in
                                                                 interpreting the Bible. By building understanding of the composition,
                                                                 sources, historical contexts, inspiration, and varying types of literature
                                                                 of the Bible you will develop a framework within which to read and interpret
                                                                 Biblical stories that makes sense to you!

        This study will help you discern what the story meant to its original communities and
        what it can mean to us today. It will also challenge you to raise some of the questions that need
        to be asked of the Bible as you search for the meaning it can give your life and the lives of others.
                           Sunday School Survey
 We are looking for ways to improve our Sunday School program. For the last seven years we

 have had the 2nd through 6th graders going through a rotational Sunday school model – this is

 where they have a different themed lesson through art, music, cooking and other methods of

 learning. We are exploring going back to a more traditional method of Sunday School where

           each grade has a teacher and a dedicated room that they use each Sunday.

 But we want to know what you think! You can either fill out this quick survey and return it to

the basket on the interest table or come to our ministry meeting on Tuesday, May 11, 6:30 pm

                               in the Fellowship Hall at Church.

   1. What grade is your child(ren) currently in?

   2. Do you feel they are retaining the lessons taught in Sunday school?                _____

   3. Please indicate which sentence best describes your thoughts on rotation versus

       traditional Sunday school:

__ No, please do not change it from rotation to traditional.

__ I’m fine with either continuing the rotation model or changing to traditional Sunday School.

__ Yes, please change back to the traditional Sunday School

                         MEN’S EARLY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
                                  Wednesdays—7 a.m.
Meet every Wednesday 7a.m. – 8 a.m. in the fellowship hall at Rejoice. This begins with a breakfast and leads
                        into bible study. This is a great way to start your day.

                                      WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
  Please join us on the May 11th at 9:30 a.m. in the fellowship hall. This Bible Study is based on the Lutheran
       Woman Today magazine bible study. Join us for Bible Study, treats, coffee and great fellowship.

                                       Tuesdays - 10:00 a.m.
  A group of faithful Rejoice members meet every Thursday morning at Rejoice to give prayers of thanks and
 to pray for special needs which members of our congregation have requested. You are welcome to join this
               group at any time. If you have a special prayer request, you may leave it in the box
                              marked ―Prayer Requests,‖ on the interest table.

                                  VISIT THE REJOICE WEBSITE!
   The Rejoice website includes worship schedules, youth and family information, service lists for members,
  event calendar and e-mail addresses for staff. In addition, you can access the ELCA website, ELCA Mission
  Endowment Fund, Green Lake Lutheran Ministries, and Children’s Haven International where some of our
                              members have served on special mission projects.
                                        Visit often to be informed!

 It worked for 2 office chairs and calculator, for which we are VERY grateful! Now, the paper shredder has
ceased to shred, so we are putting out a plea for any size paper shredder you may want to donate to Rejoice.
                                    Please see or talk to Carol in the office.

                                          Spring is here!!
The Property Team and some generous volunteers have been busy trimming bushes, raking the yard, building
a prayer garden, cleaning the garage, along with other jobs, including fixing a vacuum cleaner, doing emergency
plumbing and trouble shooting an electrical problem. Even confirmation students have gotten into the act by
picking up rocks and doing ―artsy‖ painting in the education wing. To each of you I say “Thank You,” a thousand
times over. It is so rewarding to know that members are stepping forward and helping out.

An area where help is needed all summer is lawn mowing, weed management and watering. Sign up sheets are
on the interest tables opposite the coat racks.

We are still looking for members to do some small weekly tasks. If you have an hour a week available to help,
call me, Karolyn @ 320-558-2247

Is God calling you to share your talents and labor to help Rejoice?

                                        SING LIKE A CROW?
If you are not a singer, aren’t comfortable ushering or reading scripture during service, I have a job for you!!
We are in need of some volunteer custodial help.

Weekly projects would include things like washing the glass on interior windows and doors, replacing paper
products throughout the building, wiping off tables in the education wing and the dining room, vacuuming the
Education Wing hall, the Narthex area or the altar area.

These projects would be divided up so no one person would need to do multiple jobs, each job would only
take about one hour, and could be matched to your abilities.

We are not in a financial position that we can pay for more custodial time. Please consider helping. My Motto
is “Many Hands Make Light Work.”
