Last week at our Bible study, we got to hear from Rod and Patty Dempsey and their church planting experience. It was great to hear from someone else's perspective, someone that had been there and has lived it. God did the work, their team was willing to work for him, to talk to people and God did a great work !!! Thank you guys for sharing !!!
This week were heard a word from Danny. He read in Acts 14 about how Paul was stoned, and encouraged us that even though the people turned on him there where he witnessed, people were saved and healed. God did the work !! Even though Paul was stoned, he was healed, the scripture says Acts 14:20 " Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe." God healed him and he was right back up and about God's work. He was stoned so that the people thought he was dead, they drug him out of the city, wow, we serve a mighty God !!! God is willing and ready to do the work. Are we willing ? Are we willing to take persecution and whatever else may come our way, trusting in God to do the work ultimately?
I stand in awe I as realize we are about 60 days out...... In 60 days we will be moving, unpacking, packing.... wow time flies, please pray for us as we begin this mission, as we put feet to a vision, to a work for God . As we live out and encourage others "Authentic life through Christ" Pray we can have the steadfastness and boldness of Paul, and the other disciples that carried God's word.
