(Singing) “He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Christ Jesus lives today
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life’s narrow way
He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Salvation to impart
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart”
Last month, Christians all over the world celebrated the death of Christ. This is one occurrence that forms the core of our Christian faith, God sending His only Son to come and die in our place so that we are reconciled with Him. It was a solemn period of reflection and we are grateful for the grace that has been shown to us.
We’ve got a lot of people leaving this world right now and it’s not a lot of time until we will be leaving this earth if we are to think about it. Evangelism takes time. For this reason, as a family, it’s been our purpose to share the message of salvation at the least chance even if it’s just singing a hymn.
(Singing) “In all the world around me I see His loving care
And though my heart grows weary I never will despair
I know that He is leading, through all the stormy blast
The day of His appearing will come at last”……………
Yes, knowing He is always leading, we can confidently say that His grace has indeed been sufficient to us as a family. Challenging as the past year was, He kept His promise to never leave us nor forsake us. He blessed the family during the first quarter with of this year another member. We had our last son being blessed with a son in February. Thankfully he is fine and healthy.
As we hold the prayer line, please continue to bear my entire family up in prayers, especially for me that God will bless me with good health as I age. In the absence of Steve, may He grant me the wisdom and grace to play both the motherly and fatherly role for the entire family. Also, remember our last daughter, Jony, in prayers as she seeks God’s face for a life partner. This is a my special prayer request.
Finally, I thank you so-o-o much for standing by my family throughout these years that we have known each other in serving the Lord. Thank you so much.
