As you all know tomorrow our pastor will be in the Philippines teaching and preaching. I am very excited about this opportunity for our church to be involved in the furtherance of the Kingdom in the Philippines. Our pastor has looked forward to this trip since many of the people in our church family are originally from the Philippines. However, I know that his thoughtsw and prayers will be with us tomorrow.
Let us all pray that..
1. People will come to know Christ while our Pastor preaches the Gospel during his one week trip in the Philippines.
2. The pastors he will be teaching will take the biblical missions model of the church that we hear about in our World Evangelism Committees meeting and see implemented at our church.
3. That Bro. Austin, John, and Mark will have traveling safety during their trip.
4. We will all work hard to bring God maximum glory through our outreach today and our worship of our Lord tomorrow!
Currently, the young men and women in the Our Generation Training Center are hosting a cookout at their home. While I was there I met nearly a dozen of their neighbors. They are doing a great job at meeting their neighbors and being “salt and light” in their community.
Even thought we will miss Pastor Gardner tomorrow we are blessed to have Bro. Tony Howeth with us for both of our services tomorrow. In the morning he will be finishing our series on “The End of Days”. I look forward to hearing Biblical teaching on the anti-christ.
Tomorrow is “round-to-it” day at our church. Many people have told us in the past they would come to church when they get a “round-to-it” tomorrow we pray we will see many of them that have finally recieved a “round-to-it”. We thank God for those of you who have faithfully been inviting your friends since the launch of our church church over a year ago!
