This article is by Stuart Dixon, one of the Elders of the Berkshire Hills Church.



​When I joined the church back in 1967 at the tender age of 16 I loved and still do  the mission stories. One would hear of the great things that  God did on behalf of the people in the stories. I thought it would be nice to see these things happen in my sphere of influence. Some years later in 2005 I was priveleged  to go down to Peru. The group was called Berkshire Mission and we were to construct a church and to do medical work. We brought down medical supplies to use during our medical time there. Seemed easy enough but the Nation of Peru did not allow outside groups to bring in medical supplies. But we as a group felt impressed to move forward any way. Our leader had made a pretrip to check things things out and was informed at that time about the medical situation. He had contacted the Mayor of the city we were going to  and the mayor agreed to meet us in Lima to help us get the medical supplies through. He was good on his promise and he  and our leader went to the Peruvian congress and  while we prayed they spoke to the congress men. They lifted the ban on the medical supplies. Unheard of!! God worked a  great work for us.

​We must not doubt God. He can work a miricle for anyone. Some times it will be mind blowing but most times it will be His still small voice that works small things to His favor. Life is made up of small things that add up. Iam sure as we look back on our lives we will see Gods workings in our personal situation. Back in 1978 I fell while ice skating . I hit the ice hard and broke my right knee cap. The ER doctor said it was the worse brake he had seen in his 40 years as an Emergency Room Doctor. The surgeon told me that I would never walk again. After prayer and physical theropy I am walking! God does work in our personal lives. 
​Don't give up on God. He will do what is best for you. We may be having some hard times now but Paul says our difficulties on Earth will be nothing compared to the glories of Heaven. Keep Close to God and those who endure to the end will be saved.

Pastor Dennis Farley, his wife Barbara, and their Doberman Gus moved to our district in May 2013.  He has been an educator and pastor all his professional life.  He is well-known for his large beard, twinkly eyes, and sense of humor.  He operates on the belief that every interaction, no matter how incidental, has the potential to leave a person a little more open or a little less open to the Holy Spirit.  One of his favorite sayings is "I cling to the naive belief that somewhere between here and the Kingdom, Christians will become Christlike."  He loves people of all ages and backgrounds, and he especially enjoys being out in the country again after years of service in or near metropolitan areas.
