Dear Friend of Vessel Ministries
As Christians we are always thankfulRockwell Thanksgiving for His salvation and love in our lives. But, this national season of Thanksgiving is such a great time for reflection on the many blessings we have. For all of us these last several years have been "tough" with the difficulties in the economy, etc. And yet, how blessed we are to live in this country; the list is endless. For some of you (myself included) we have had some personal losses this year--some losses that we just do NOT understand and probably never will. Regardless, His word stands: Psalms 28:7 says it better than I could: The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with Joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. So whatever has occurred in your life this year, He is still sovereign and you have reason to be thankful! Choose Joy! Be Thankful? Be Encouraged!
Visit Israel in 2011 with David & Kathy Slamp
Our tour to Israel, Petra in Jordan, and the add-on cruise in the Mediterranean is REALLY shaping up for March 8-18, 2011. At the present time we have 25 paid travelers and about 10 more seriously considering the tour.
This is the 8th such trip we've led, and we are SO excited about it, BUT we are approaching the reservation deadline for reservations, etc. If you are interesting in ANY way or know anyone who, please contact us soon. You may call me personally at either number on the right, or call David directly at (541) 944-9497. We look forward to hearing form you. This trip is just amazing, and it's a life changer.

Vessel Min. Christmas Catalog Coming Soon...
Clinging Cross
This year Vessel will be sending out an online Christmas catalog; you can look for it by the middle of November. There will be some DEEP discounts that should really help you with your Christmas gifts. Two items especially that are of interest to churches and Bible Studies:
1. The Clinging Cross Products
2. The Word in Real Time daily devotional
Several churches are purchasing copies of The Word in Real Word in Rel TimeTime so that their entire congregation can read the Bible through in 2011.  In addition,
a lot of churches and groups of that nature are using the Clinging Cross products for hospital gifts in lieu of flowers as well as giving them to families in bereavement or who are going through serious struggles. We will be offering big discounts on The Word in Real Time, and we'll be offering a "Baker's Dozen" offer on Clinging Cross products.

Vessel's Theme!
We have this treasure in jars of clay to prove that this all surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed!
II Cor. 4:7

Next weekend, Nov. 5-7, I'll be at NNU for the alumni meeting, homecoming, and class reunion.

Nov. 13 & 14, I'll be speaking for the Women's Extravaganza at Crossroads Ch. in Farmington, NM.

Please pray for both of these events

Also: In today's climate, people are searching for encouragement, community, and a challenge. Recently, God has given me some new messages that are really peoples' deepest needs.
In addition:  I am doing everything possible to be creative with event planners. If you are scheduling an event, or know a group that is, please contact our office. With God's help, we'll MAKE IT HAPPEN!
