A place of love is hard to find in this world but when we do find such a place we always have a deep desire to return there. This week as we travel our mission path we have the privilege of speaking in such a place. We will be speaking at the Newton Falls First Church of God on Saturday, May 17th and on Sunday May 18th. On the 17th we will be speaking to the children’s and youth ministry then we will have dinner together. Our goal is to help engage the young people in Christ’s mission. We are so happy to be speaking with the church of now. On Sunday we will be speaking in adult and children’s Sunday School classes then Timothy will speak in the worship service, following the service we will have dinner together. The Sunday morning festivities begin with a meet and greet at 9:00 (with coffee and doughnuts), Sunday School at 9:30 and the worship service at 10:50. If you are in the area of Newton Falls, be sure to meet us at 426 W. Broad St. We look forward to seeing you there!

Ministry Focus: Teaching in the Church of God seminary and assisting with Children of Promise and other programs meeting social needs Timothy was raised in the Breiel Boulevard Church of God in Middletown, Ohio. A passion for missions was planted in his heart by his parents Darlene and Cordell and his grandmother Ruth. He received his call to ministry on a short-term mission trip to Panama. To prepare for this calling, he attended Mid-America Christian University. Angelita was born in Wisconsin to Manuel and Tomasa Garcia. She worshiped and served in her local congregation from a young age. She transferred to Mid-America Christian University during her sophomore year of college, where she and Timothy met. After getting married, the Downings served Christ in pastoral ministry in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Ohio. They have four children: Timothy, 12; Esperanza, 8; Ezequiel, 3; and Elias, 1. The Downing family prayer is: “Allow us to see Christ clearly so we may follow him closely.” It is that heart cry that that has led them to missionary service in Ecuador. Timothy, Angelita, and their children are committed to serving Christ in Ecuador by training leaders at S.E.T.E. (Church of God seminary) and assisting with the Children of Promise program.
