The word for this Tuesday is prayer. So many people in our church have experienced illness or loss in the last couple of weeks. Please continue to pray for healing, and for comfort for our church. We pray that this nasty virus will lose its grip on our world. We all long for community in times of need, and not being able to be together face to face is devastating to our emotional health.
We will continue to meet online until we see a continued downward trend in our covid numbers. We know that gathering is vital, but the risk of this virus is just too great at this time.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support. We know that through all of this God continues to work for the good of those that love Him.
For some good news please read the note I received from my friend Dismass who we support in Bungoma Kenya. We were able to give him a large end of the year gift, which he in retuen has continued to give away as well. Pictures are attached.
"Grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ continue to rest on you all, my brother servant of God Pastor Rusty and Lisa Akers!
