While we have had a wonderful week here in our own area, in our congregation, there are a lot of wonderful things taking place in and through the Lord’s church around the world. There are several reports on the table in the foyer concerning some of these great works. There wasn’t room to post them on the bulletin board but they are lying on the short table in the foyer. Reports from: Donnie Bates and his work with Bear Valley Bible Institute; from Phil Sanders and In Search Of The Lord’s Way; World Bible School and, Sunset International Bible Institute. I encourage all of you to take these, read them and then return them to the table for others to read. I really believe you will be very encouraged when you see what all is happening and some of which this congregation is taking part in helping with financial support in some ways.
Brethren, it is really easy to let ourselves to get so focused on all the bad that is happening in our world right now to the point we can’t see the good. We must understand, as bad as things are in a lot of places, there is still a lot of good, a lot of God’s work taking place all around our world. This should encourage us, each of us, to stand up and fight! Fight against Satan, fight against evil, fight against all that which opposes Almighty God! Of course, I’m not talking about fighting physically but spiritually in every way possible. Hopefully, from all we had here last week added to all the good happening in the Lord’s church around us we will all be strengthened and encouraged in every way.
Until next week, I love you all,
