History (pronounced his-tuh-ree, his-tree) is defined as 1) the branch of knowledge dealing with past events; 2)  a continuous, systematic narrative of past events as relating to particular people, country, period, person, etc., usually written as chronological account; and 3) the aggregate of past events. BFI has come upon a couple of photo items from out of the “historical” past.
 

From Federal Way News archives, the above photo gives record of W. H Offiler’s purchase of 55 acres of property at Mirror Lake. It was know in those days as Bethel Gospel Park.

Our second photo from almost 70 years ago was submitted as “Courtesy Bonnie Branner” (possibly Brannen). It shows attendees of the Bethel Gospel Park Camp Meeting in July 1948, as they pose sitting in front of the old Tabernacle, which is no longer standing.

Mirror Lake Gospel Park is still active today, but is known these days as Federal Way’s Bethel Christian Center, formerly Bethel Chapel.

We would like to extend our gratitude to Christian Faith Center in Federal Way for the use of their facilities on Saturday, September 23, to celebrate the life of Bethel Fellowship International’s President and Chairman Floyd Earlywine, who passed away suddenly on September 9, 2017, in Wenatchee, WA.

For many who wanted to attend the celebration but could not, Christian Faith Center provided a video presentation of the celebration to the Earlywine family. They have given us permission to share 2-hour 30-minute video here on the BFI website. 

Your continued prayers for the Earlywine Family’s comfort and consolation are greatly appreciated.
