Our Church Family
Isaiah 56:7 "Even those I will bring to My holy mountain And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples."
Dearest blogging friends, I would like to tell you a bit about where my family and I fellowship each week. Our church is called Covenant of Grace Christian Fellowship. I have the privilege of leading worship for this wonderful multi-generational, multi-national group of believers each week. Better than anything (yes, better than leading worship) is the joy of rubbing elbows with people that I may not even understand 50% of what they say because they're new to America by way of Myanmar or Africa. May I tell you that they challenge ME in worship! From the platform I am able to observe their fervency in worship, their love for the Lord, their willingness to attend and serve diligently week after week after week because they're simply thankful, truly thankful. Thankful for freedom, thankful for opportunity, thankful for life itself.
During the last two weeks two of our families that are new to America have been hit by a cars, one of them as a pedestrian. They're "o.k." physically speaking, hospitalized, but they're alive and we thank the Lord for that. Please join me in praying for God's fullest purpose and destiny to be fulfilled in their lives. They have come for a reason. Their love for the Lord shines like a beacon. I am enclosing a note from one of our Pastors so that there could be names to attach to this request.
"Hi everyone, Please pray for Kee Ha (Burmese man in our church). He was hit by a car last night while riding to minister to some of our Burmese young people. He's in St. Josephs. Len and Moses are there now. I believe he is ok, will update. Also remember Awee Livingstone still recovering from broken bones in an accident."
Let us join together in faithful, fervent prayer. God is greater than the most overwhelming need any of us may be aware of!
