Nov. 2019 update & praise

November 28, 2019
Greetings Precious Friends
Let us remember Jesus is the reason for the season and all seasons.
I pray you are all well in the Lord. I know we are in troubled times and that is why we need to stay focused.

Scriptures NKJV
Isa 50:7 “For the Lord GOD will help Me;
Therefore I will not be disgraced;
Therefore I have set My face like a flint,
And I know that I will not be ashamed.

Isa 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Phl 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

It has been a very active time so if I haven’t been in touch that is why. I am praying for all of you that the peace that passes all understanding may rest on you.

Zechariah update Aug. 30/19 & invitation

Aug. 30/19
Greetings Friends
It has been a very active and full summer.
Summer is almost at it’s end, next week the children go back to school. Let us pray for all of them.
Things in our world are changing so fast it is hard to keep up and what is being taught in our schools now make some shudder. We need to pray and stay focused on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith as it is written.

Heb 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Rev 3:10 “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. NKJV

Rom 5:3,4 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces
perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope

Jhn 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Rom 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

UPDATE
By God’s Grace 60 ponchos were given to the homeless.

Cal Maskery and Jamie Mills from Moncton, New Brunswick came to speak at Beaver Creek Institution Medium Sunday service August 11, and (Min/Med) on Monday August 12, 2019 at Overcomers. It was a wonderful time and the men enjoyed their testimonies and received signed copies by Cal of the book ” Like Father, Like Son” written by his daughter Alisha Maskery. They spoke to 38 men in the Medium and 17 in the Minimum.
