Missions Moment: April Focus for our Missions Cafe.. MAK (Missions & Kids)

Missions and kids (MAK) is about saving the lives of children around the globe!

One of the ways they do that is to buy nets that hang from the ceiling over the children’s beds to protect them while they sleep. This is a simple but very effective way to prevent disease from insect bites!

The nets cost $10/net… lets try and buy 50!

Scripture: Matthew 19:14

PS - Thanks to your generous donations in the cafe in March we are sending $318 to the Samson’s for the Widows in India!

Hebrews 10:19 “We have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the Blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is His Body.”

It was a dark and sombre day in the outskirts of Jerusalem. On a hill just outside the city walls, a Man who’d been attracting crowds for the past three years hung in disgrace and pain on a rough wooden cross, Mourners wept and wailed in sorrow. The light of the sun no longer brightened the afternoon sky. And the intense suffering of the Man ended when He cried out in a loud voice, “It is finished”. At that very moment, another sound came from the great temple across town - the sound of ripping fabric. Miraculously without human intervention, the Huge, Thick Veil that separated the outer temple from the Holy of Holies tore in two from Top to Bottom. That torn curtain symbolized the reality of the cross; a new way was now opened to God. Jesus the Man on the cross, had shed His Blood as the last sacrifice allowed, all who believe in Him are able to enjoy forgiveness of sins and enter into a relationship with God. Amidst the darkness of that Good Friday, Jesus opened a way for us to be saved from the consequences of our sins and experience fellowship with God. Thank you Jesus for the torn Veil.

Have a Blessed Peace filled Easter knowing the price has been paid for our sins.
Jesus is also the reason for This Season!

1 John 5:18. "We know whoever is born of God does not keep on sinning.  But whoever is born of God guards himself, and the wicked one cannot touch him."  Satan cannot do anything to you apart from fear, any more than God will do something for you apart from faith (Heb. 11:6).  Just as faith is unwavering confidence in God and His WORD, fear is unwavering confidence in something that has the ability to hurt you or cause a serious loss in your life.  It is activated through words and actions in the same way faith is activated through words and actions.

The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control.  Notice no fear.

Fear must come from the outside, it first comes against your mind as thoughts of doubt, unbelief, disaster.  When you meditate on these and it starts to come out of your mouth, they begin to grow and take root inside you.  Jesus said, "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." (Matt 12:34, 25) If you want good things to come to pass in your life, speak God's WORD.  Refuse to speak words of doubt, fear and unbelief which gives the devil a foothold.  Don't ever act on fear.  It will move into your spirit and choke your faith.  It will do its best to stay there and ruin your life.  Fill your heart with God's unchanging WORD, and watch the abundance of your heart produce the fruit of the Spirit, the blessings of God.

Missions Moment: Dignity Project in Romania


Dignity... a word we understand and believe God means for all people.
Proton Foundation (Ian Green) is providing sanitary products to the Roma women living in the community of Lazareni, Romania.
The need is great. This is an opportunity to witness by meeting a ‘felt need’ for these precious women.

So enjoy the goodies in the cafe knowing all donations this month go to this need.

SCRIPTURE: Galatians 6:2; Hebrews 6:10

Women's Connection Newsletter - May 2018

I read an article on a guy, James, who got a new puppy, and caught him chewing on one of his books he bemoaned that this was only one of the incidents of catching him chewing on his personal possessions. It brought to mind our dog Buddy when he was a puppy.  He chewed on anything he could get to.  My glasses, money (someone else's, Alice S., actually took it out of her purse) any paper laying around and all the plastic tips on my shoe laces.  I like the way James brought it around to us, and what we "Chew" on in out minds and hearts.  Do we carefully consider what we are feeding our souls when we watch T.V. surf on the internet, the social media, games, music we listen to etc.?  We have been learning in Bible study, that what we "chew" on is what comes out of us, especially in a time of crisis.  No wonder the Lord told Joshua, to meditate on the Word day and night to have success.  "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Matt. 12:34 What we chew on, in other words, fill our minds with, is how we develop our maturity, or not, in the Lord.  Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Rom. 10:17. Having our mind so full of the Word that at times of crisis we know what to speak.  Now that's good chewing.

September 2017

I was reading an article on borderline christianity.  It was related to the children of Israel when they finally came to the promised land with Joshua and Moses had died.  The Lord told them to go across the Jordan River and claim the land promised to them.  There would still be battles to win, the enemy would not give it up easily, but God promised to be with them and if they obeyed Him, would win every battle.  However, 2 1/2 tribes, Reuben, Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh asked to stay on the east side of the Jordan, they saw its good pastures etc and wanted to settle there, so just before he died they asked Moses to let them settle there.  Moses was very upset but they proposed a compromise and finally Moses agreed.  Were they right, the answer in No.  These men moved by sight and not by faith.  God had told them to possess the west side of the Jordan. This is an example of borderline Christianity, are we possessing only that which satisfies us, or are we moving ahead to claim all that God has for us, all that Jesus paid such a high price for us to have.  Matt. 13:23 "But he that receives seed into good ground is he that hears the Word and understands it; who also bears fruit and brings forth some 100 fold, some 60 some 30.
