In honor of Sadie Hawkin's Day, Prize for the Best Costume, COME JOIN US FOR WORSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP 614 E. 6th ST., AUSTIN, TEXAS (512)477-7747 A WORSHIP EXPERIENCE OF SPIRITUAL RENEWAL by Ron Moss In September of 1976, three people felt called to start an evangelistic ministry to the Metropoli Community Churches. Reverend Ron J. Anderson, Annette Beal and Jeanne Leggett sold all their belongings, bought a 1959 GMC school bus, converted it into a 1 and set off across the country to hold spiritual revivals at local M.C.C. churches. The first services were held at M.C.C. OKlahoma City. At that time, Reverend Candace Naisbitt (currently M.C.C. Austin pastor) named the bus "Shasta" (shasta have gas, shasta have oil, shasta have tires,.) Since that time, the team has started a bookstore, estabolished a publication called "Evangelite", and made outreaches into many cities that do not have the blessings of a local M.C.C, The team is supported by individual donations and love offerings collected at the services. Much of the equipment the team uses is donated. Team members receive a weekly salary of $20.00, which must cover all their personal needs. The rest of the money goes back into the ministry. When "Shasta I" threw two rods, there was enough money in the Bus Fund to buy "Shasta Too", a 1971 Chevy, In the spring of 1978, Annette and Jeanne left the team and God sent Nancy and Scooter to take their place. Butch joined the team as Ron's "mate" and took over preparations for revivals. Dee Lamb (Exhorter in Houston) is in charge of their mail, Annette's mother had done this for hte first 19 months. Billy Stoffell of Houston is the bookkeeper. M.C.C. Austin members Joe Miller and Mark Bruzzese have joined the team for one year. They have also helped the team produce "I AM A CHILD OF GOD". This record should be available by March 1, The team books churches six months to a year in advance by notifying all churches in an area that they are coming. Those churches which express an Interest are sent pre-renewal packets, schedules, dates, and other essential information. "Evangelite", the team's monthly publication, keeps people in touch with the team's activities and tells '- them what is happening in people's and churches lives as well. To receive the free publication, send your name, address and zip code to: New Freedom Evangelistic Team, Inc., P.O.Box 371, Galena Park, Texas 775*+7. The New Freedom Evangelistic Team is a great assett to U.F.M.C.C. and our community. If you haven't attended one of their services, you are tr-uely missing a blessing. Please support your brothers and sisters, who are working for you on the team, with your dollars, encouragement and letters. DISCRIMINATION DISCRIMINATION INFORMATION NEEDED The Austin Lesbian/Gay Political Caucus is looking for newspaper clippings, magazine articles and any other documentation concerning discrimination against lesbians or gay men. When ALGPC members met with Congressman J. J. Pickle during the March on Washington, he expressed ignorance of any discrimination against gays and asked for more information. If you have any clippings, articles or other documentation of discrimination, mail them to ALGPC, P.O.Box 822, Austin, Texas 78767. •RMATI0N UPDATE Affirmation/Gay Mormons United has changed its name to "Affirmation/Gay and Lesbian Mormons". The decision to add "Lesbians" to the name was made at the Affirmation National Organization's first meeting, which was held in California last December. Ti site of the group's national headquarters will be decided at a future meeting. Salt Lake City and Washington D.C. are currently the most favored locations. Affirmation is now conducting a membership drive in Texas. All active, inactive, or excommunicated members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who are gay are invited to join. Contact Ron Moss of Austin (512/'4143-lilOO) for more information.
