Stuck in the house? Need something worth seeing from the car?

April 3, 2020

WBChurch and friends,

We received a heads up about the tulip festival is Swedesboro, NJ turning into drive through.

See the link below.

Pastor

Hi All,
A friend of mine told me about this farm in Swedesboro (NJ) that has made their annual tulip festival a drive through event. She said it was great and safe because everyone stays in their own car. 🙂
Thought you all might be interested.

Warning from FBI about our online community platform, Zoom

April 1, 2020

WBChurch,

This issue was brought to my attention by one of our members. I am grateful that you are all keeping your eyes and ears open as we navigate this difficult time.

Rest assured, moving forward we will implement the following recommended guidelines from the FBI in order to keep our online communities a safe place to connect.

Thank you all…missing you all…looking forward to our "reunion" when this is all over.

This gives great tips on how to prevent Zoom sessions (should you decide to use them) from being hijacked by someone wanting to infiltrate it for nefarious purposes. This is worth the warning and has practical steps in how to prevent it.

From the FBI in Boston:

FBI Warns of Teleconferencing and Online Classroom Hijacking During COVID-19 Pandemic

As large numbers of people turn to video-teleconferencing (VTC) platforms to stay connected in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, reports of VTC hijacking (also called “Zoom-bombing”) are emerging nationwide. The FBI has received multiple reports of conferences being disrupted by pornographic and/or hate images and threatening language.

Within the FBI Boston Division’s area of responsibility (AOR), which includes Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, two schools in Massachusetts reported the following incidents:

  • In late March 2020, a Massachusetts-based high school reported that while a teacher was conducting an online class using the teleconferencing software Zoom, an unidentified individual(s) dialed into the classroom. This individual yelled a profanity and then shouted the teacher’s home address in the middle of instruction.
  • A second Massachusetts-based school reported a Zoom meeting being accessed by an unidentified individual. In this incident, the individual was visible on the video camera and displayed swastika tattoos.

As individuals continue the transition to online lessons and meetings, the FBI recommends exercising due diligence and caution in your cybersecurity efforts. The following steps can be taken to mitigate teleconference hijacking threats:

  • Do not make meetings or classrooms public. In Zoom, there are two options to make a meeting private: require a meeting password or use the waiting room feature and control the admittance of guests.
  • Do not share a link to a teleconference or classroom on an unrestricted publicly available social media post. Provide the link directly to specific people.
  • Manage screensharing options. In Zoom, change screensharing to “Host Only.”
  • Ensure users are using the updated version of remote access/meeting applications. In January 2020, Zoom updated their software. In their security update, the teleconference software provider added passwords by default for meetings and disabled the ability to randomly scan for meetings to join.
  • Lastly, ensure that your organization’s telework policy or guide addresses requirements for physical and information security.

If you were a victim of a teleconference hijacking, or any cyber-crime for that matter, report it to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at ic3.gov. Additionally, if you receive a specific threat during a teleconference, please report it to us at tips.fbi.gov or call the FBI Boston Division at (857) 386-2000.

WBChurch needs your help

April 1, 2020

WBChurch and friends,

We need some volunteers that have some time to assemble face masks for Urgent care in the Twp. We have the materials and can drop them off. You can do this at your kitchen tables with scissors, ruler, and a sharpy or marker.

We can drop off the supplies in a box and pick the assembled ones back up the same way. The urgent care will take as many as we can assemble.

Instructions are attached.

Text me to my 0049 phone number below or email me back if you can help.

We need people with Power Washers

March 31, 2020

WBChurch and friends,

We all are "hungry" to find ways we might be a blessing to our community while on lockdown like this. Someone just suggested this to me and I think is a great idea.

Please write me back if you have a power washer and are willing to use it to help local stores still serving our communities pressure wash their carts.

If we have anyone with one and willing to help, I will reach out to Shoprite, ACME and other stores still in operation in the Twp. and see if we can schedule times that would help them prevent the spread of the virus and germs.

If you have a pressure washer and want to help, reply to this email.

Post this request to your social media pages. Maybe we can get an army of washers and can set us a schedule that will help keep our community safe.

Sincerely,

Pastor DeLong

Prayer Update from Norm, director New Life Island

March 28, 2020

Hello from NLI,

I needed to send this email to first, let you know that our April 4th workday has been canceled. We are hoping the May 2 workday won?t have to be canceled as well.

I also thought I should share some more information concerning my health. So, here it is.

Had another visit with my oncologist. My PSA is 597. The drug that we had thought to try didn’t pan out. It would have cost $10,000.00 per month and my Doctor didn’t think it would be effective for me.

We talked about doing more chemotherapy. My Dr. believes that the only chemo drug available wouldn’t work in my case. He thought I should seriously consider whether to do more chemo or not. I have decided not to do anymore chemotherapy.

What lies ahead for me is an increase in bone pain. When that comes we will do injectable radiation, it will help with the pain. After that we will focus on pain control.

Psalm 34:8-10
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

The Lord has blessed me greatly in my 61 years. I face the future knowing that my life is in His hands and my eternal dwelling place awaits. I hope you know my Jesus.

Yours for Christian Camping,

Norm MacKenzie

WBChurch Needs Your Help

March 27, 2020

Dear WBChurch and friends,

Now is your chance to do the easiest witnessing you have ever thought of:

  • No pressure
  • No chance of rejection
  • No fear of what to say or not say
  • No worry about offending anyone
  • No knocking on strangers doors
  • No Looks like you are crazy

Since everything is online:

  1. Go to the church’s Website, YouTube, or Facebook pages, click share to and use your preferred platform (personal social media stream/story, email, text, etc.)
  2. Post or share tomorrow and Sunday morning
  3. Ask friends to repost if they would like
  4. If you are into Facebook, start a "Watch Party" with your friends when we start streaming
  5. Share the LiveStream after it is done, from Facebook, Livestream or YouTube

No one will be upset, you can help get the word out.

You never know, someone you reach might be disconnected from their own church or doesn’t have a church and can still hear God’s Word on Sunday.

Witnessing at its easiest.

All you have to do is be willing and take just a few minutes to share. It costs and risks nothing, but presents opportunities for great eternal reward.

Will you help?

This is our time to shine.
