Psalms 26:7 KJV
7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
I am so thankful for what God has done this past year. It has not always been easy, and many in our church family have gone through struggles in life. Nevertheless, God's steadfast love has come through time and time again, with His Holy Spirit always interceding when we have needed Him the most. Some have faced acute challenges, some have lost loved ones, others personal battles both spiritually and physically. Yet, God's love has always found a way. Healing wounds, touching hearts and saving lives.
We also has seen more people come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and baptizer in His Spirit in 2014, than in any year of this ministry.
I personally am so proud of the development of some wonderful new Shepherd Leaders, who have helped enable me personally to take on new challenges outside of CGMF. Giving ourselves a chance to be a blessing to so many more people in Christ's Kingdom and in the world at large. I find myself watching and praying, with so many of you taking up the mantle of Christ. I truly feel I could just move on, and the ministry would go on without a hitch, with God's anointing and power continuing to be out-poured. I am not saying I am going to do that. LOL Yet, I could.
Our fellowship with Full Gospel Restoration continues to move forward, and I hope our participation and our support will be a blessing. With God's work being done in a special way. I also pray that some of you might come and encourage the work at St. Martin of Tours. Which I have been a part of and have served. Helping this small parish move and grow, with God's best yet to come. Vicar Kim is doing a wonderful job as its mentor and she needs our prayers. They have been so supportive of your pastor, and the intimacy of the parish has helped me so very much. I have needed its shelter from the responsibility of CGMF at times, and it is a " my time " place for me to just personally unveil before the Lord away from my responsibilities here at CGMF. Giving me balance and strength I have never had before in such a special way.
To everyone at CGMF, friends and brethren. Have yourselves a great Thanksgiving weekend. We here at CGMF, and myself truly are appreciative of your love and prayers. God bless you all in Jesus precious and Holy Name.
In His Mercy,
