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.
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.
