GREAT JOB!!!


JANUARY 2018 CHIEF’S CORNER

 

Well 2017 is officially in the books and winter is officially here. We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday season and want to thank EVERYONE for their support in 2017 and looking forward to working with you in 2018.

It’s that time of year again that I ask our village residents that if you have a hydrant on or near your property to please keep the area around it shoveled and clear of snow and ice. If you see or have a hydrant that you feel needs attention and are unable to take care of it please feel free to call myself at 920-210-2510. The last thing we want is for us to need that hydrant and be unable to get to it safely. They are there for your protection. Please help us help you.

Also remember to check your furnace vent pipes to keep them free of ice and snow. A properly vented furnace not only is much more efficient it also keeps your family safe by making sure the poisonous gases are expelled outside the house.

Now that cold weather has set in many of us will be thinking about venturing out to enjoy all that Wisconsin has to offer this time of year. Such as snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. There really is no sure answer, and no such thing as 100 percent safe ice. You cannot judge the strength of ice by one factor like its appearance, age, thickness, temperature or whether the ice is covered with snow. Ice strength is based on a combination of several factors, and they can vary from water body to water body. Ice strength can also vary in different areas of the same body of water.

 Some tips to make sure you enjoy your time outdoors and return safely such as, dress warmly in layers. Don't go out alone. Head out with friends or family. Take a cell phone if available, and make sure someone knows where you are and when you are expected to return. Don't travel in areas you are not familiar and don't travel at night or during reduced visibility. Avoid inlets, outlets or narrow stream that may have current that can drastically thin the ice. Look for clear ice, which is generally stronger than ice with snow on it or bubbles in it. Carry some basic safety gear: ice claws or picks, a cellphone in a waterproof bag or case, a life jacket and length of rope.

If you fall through the ice, remain calm and act quickly. Call for help immediately by yelling or calling 911 if you see someone go through the ice. The quicker that help is requested the better the chance of a safe recovery.

If you fall through:

1. Do not remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes can trap air, which can help provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true in a snowmobile suit.

2. Go back toward the direction you came. That is probably where you will find the strongest ice – and what lies ahead is unknown.

3. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks are handy in providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice.

4. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward.

5. Once back on the ice, don't try to stand up. Lie flat until you are completely out of the water, then roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again.

6. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and warm yourself up immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold-water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to warm up. The shock of the chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death!

Stay safe and enjoy all that Wisconsin winter has to offer.

Help us spread the word!!! Sunday January 14th RFD will be having BINGO at the Reeseville Community Center again. We thank everyone that has attended. Things went very well and we received a lot of positive comments how much fun attendees had. Prices for BINGO will by listed at the door. Doors will open at 4:00pm to allow more time for everyone to get a snack and get situated before the fun begins. BINGO will start at 5:30pm. Come on down and try your luck at some BINGO, or even just try it out for the first time. There will be food and refreshments served by the Reeseville Community Center, prices will be posted at the Community Center. Bring your wife down, let her play some BINGO while you, relax, watch some Sunday night football, and enjoy some social time and drinks at the bar with friends and neighbors of the community. We have put a lot of time, and efforts into making this community event happen; we hope to see you there. We will be hosting BINGO once a month, the dates are set as; Sunday, January 14th, February 11th, March 11th, and April 8th, 2018 same time same place.

Firefighters are always on duty. There is no down time. The mind is never at rest. People depend on us to know what to do when they don’t. There are a million things that could go wrong at any second, and firefighters are expected to perform. Firefighting is more than a title. It’s a way of life. But nothing in life is free.

The Refuge of Reeseville Church

The Refuge of Reeseville Church, servants of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, called to be His disciples, to all that be in Reeseville and the surrounding area, we pray honor and respect be to all of you.

Praying for a new year filled with hope and new life. We know a God who is able to deliver all of this and more. Thankful for the past year. Thankful for our Thanksgiving Dinner at the Community Center where the Refuge served more than 85 souls. We had a wonderful time, thank you to all who came.

[ The following is what the Refuge believes and preaches and is paid for by the Refuge Church.]

We are praying for 2018, a new year, that our Lord would bring Joy, Peace, and Meaning into your lives. 

Jerusalem

Jerusalem, meaning, the City of Peace, the city flowing with safety and friendliness.

Jerusalem, The City of our God (Psalm. 48:2), & The city of the great King. (Matt.5:35).

A city that is called by the Name of God Himself. (Danial 9:19)  The one city in the entire world in which God has chosen to place His Name. (2Chronicles 6:6) 

A City that has been established forever by our God. A City that will be inhabited forever. (Joel 3:20)

No other city in history has been sought after and fought over as the city of Jerusalem. In its long history, Jerusalem has been fought over by the armies of the Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Ptolemies, Seleucids, Romans, Byzantines, Persians, Arabs, Seljuks, Crusaders, Mongols, Mamelukes, by the Turks, the British, and the Jordanians.  This one city Jerusalem, has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. Since 1948, the birth of the Nation of Israel, Jerusalem has seen 3 different wars. Israel’s War for Independence, The Six Day Way, & The Yom Kipper War.  Adding to that the 1st and 2nd Intifadas. Many wars have occurred in the land of Israel over the last 4000 years, at least 3 in the last 70, with almost a near constant of violence.

On Dec 6, 2017 – Our President, Donald J. Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announced a plan to move the U.S. Embassy from its current location in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Regardless of our political points of view, this recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel sent shockwaves throughout the world. Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the move, saying it was "throwing the region into a ring of fire". Saudi Arabia's King Salman declared it as a flagrant provocation of Muslims, all over the world". Other calls for a 3rd Intifada. Still others, "a dangerous measure that would have repercussions" across the region.  "a death sentence for all who seek peace". And many, many other voices across the globe.

I do believe this series of events has never occurred in all of history. This many nations. Such a political firestorm for so many Nations. Over 120 nations at the UN just condemned the US for making this move.  I don’t know, but it sounds much like the intensifying of some Bible Prophesy. Here is what God says about the days we are living in.  Zechariah 12:2 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about.”

Zechariah 14:2 “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem.” No other city in the history of the world has caused such political waves as Jerusalem. No other city has stirred such anger, or such resolve.

Many wars may have occurred in the land of Israel, but I am here to tell you today, “there is more coming.”

“A burdensome stone to all people.” “All nations will come against Jerusalem.” Turkey, Iran, Ethiopia, Libya, Russia? Only time will tell. Jesus didn’t tell us to, “watch and pray,” for no reason. And we do believe what Jesus said. As stated before, we at the Refuge, are going to watch Israel. And I don’t mind letting you know what we see.

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church.  We invite you to come and learn with us about the Nation of Israel and what God has promised about what is going to happen someday.
